Erst vier Monate ist es her, dass die schwedische Hard-Rock-Gruppe GRAVEYARD ihre Auflösung publik machten. Nun hat die Hörerschaft einen Grund, aufzuatmen: GRAVEYARD gibt es wieder. Lediglich Schlagzeuger Axel Sjöberg ist kein Teil der Band mehr.
Auf Facebook veröffentlichten die Schweden folgendes Statement zu ihrer Re-Union:
„Things weren’t working and in the end a change in the lineup was the only option for our return. GRAVEYARD’s journey will continue with a yet to be named new future drummer and the reasons behind this change of scenery are something that we don’t want, wish or will comment on. We’re gonna leave it be with Axel’s own words: ‚Word on the street is that there is a job opening in the drummer’s section.‘
We wish Axel all the best and you can follow his next move with his already set to fly new outfit BIG KIZZ. We’d also like to apologize to each and every one of you out there for putting you through these uncertain GRAVEYARD times.
With that said, we’re beyond glad to announce that as of today the GRAVEYARD is officially re-opened for business. Albums will be recorded, shows will be played and all of this hopefully for a long, long time to come. GRAVEYARD’s breakup in September 2016 was attributed to „the all-so-classic reason ‚differences within the band.'“ The group explained at the time: „This is the unfortunate final decision we’ve had to make after going through a period of struggling and juggling with personal issues. Things have gone out of hand and now our energy is very low.“
