Swedish blues-based psychedelic rockers GRAVEYARD have issued the following update:
“It’s not only rock ‘n’ roll.
Sometimes in life you have to make decisions that are neither simple or easy to make. Graveyard have – after a time filled with difficulties and a search for solutions – been forced to make such a decision. Due to personal problems with addiction, it has come to the point where Rikard (Edlund; bassist), to get the proper help, will have to take a break from touring with the band. Rikard is without a doubt still a member of Graveyard, but as things are at the moment it just doesn’t work and something has to be done. The other members give Rikard their full support and the time off needed to try to beat this.
How this will affect the band – it is agreed upon by all four members that the show will go on and to do so the band will tour with a stand in bass player.
This has been a far from easy decision to make and the timing isn’t the best. But Graveyard as a band has it’s mind set on being around for a long time to come. And looking at it from that perspective and Rikard’s personal health this is the only option. This is all the band have got to say about this somewhat personal matter.”
Edlund has issued the following brief statement:
“After living the hard life for most of my life. It has come to the point that I have to take a break from playing the music that I love.”
Graveyard’s third album, Lights Out, has just been released in Europe and will be released in North America on November 6th.

Nuclear Blast has issued as follows:
With their last album „Hisingen Blues“ GRAVEYARD took a step up to the A-list of Swedish rock bands. The album won a Grammy and was undoubtedly the biggest rock affair in 2011. Graveyard is now following up the success with their brand new album, “Lights Out”.
Like the previous album „Lights Out“ has an almost iconic cover, but for other reasons. The cover is largely black, and the question is; what’s hiding in the dark? Today, the band releases an interactive teaser video on YouTube, where fans can explore this themselves.
The viewer is met by a dark room inspired by the album cover, with the difference that a few lights are low. By clicking on one of the lamps, the light turns on and the viewer is thrown into Graveyards rehearsal studio, where the band plays songs from the album “Lights Out”.
When the song is over the band turns off the lamp. With YouTube’s technology, fans, both old and new, will have the opportunity to discover their music in a new way.
Check it out here:
„Lights Out“ will be released this Friday, October 26, 2012 via Nuclear Blast!
