Past Friday, August 21, Swedish classic rock heroes, GRAVEYARD, performed live at the Marshall London party at Berns in Stockholm, Sweden where the company introduced their brand new smartphone.
The band played a 4 song set including new tunes, “Magnetic Shunk” and the current single, “The Apple And The Tree”. Eventually the band was joined on stage by guitar legend SLASH (ex-GUNS N’ ROSES, VELVET REVOLVER) for cover versions of CREEDENCE CLEARWATER REVIVAL’s “Fortunate Son”, THE BEATLES’ “Helter Skelter” and BLACK SABBATH’s “Children Of The Grave”.

The song marks the first single to come off the band’s fourth full-length album, “Innocence & Decadence”, which is due on September 25, 2015 worldwide via Nuclear Blast.

Commented the band: “Somewhere between innocence & decadence is where you will find GRAVEYARD. Hard at work trying to figure out which apples that will fall from what tree. Can you see us? We’re that little hopeless case of a fly in denial – since forever stuck between the piles of shit that your ever repeating life keeps lining up for you.”
“Innocence & Decadence” will be released in various formats (vinyl look digipak, digital download, black/clear/splatter/orange/green/bi-coloured vinyl as well as a T-Shirt/CD bundle) – pre-order your copy here: http://nblast.de/GRAVEYARDdecadence

Commented the band: “Got a new album coming your way in September called »Innocence & Decadence«. It’s gonna be an album filled to the rim with a little bit of this – and for all of those who might wonder or worry – there will be quite a lot of that on it as well. We’ve had a great time recording the album at the “gemytliga” Atlantis Studios in Stockholm together with Janne Hansson and Johan Lindström. And after kinda being away from our daily routine as a touring band and the thrill of a new album on its way ….. we wanna leave you with. Good to be gone, great to be back and let there be September!“ – Axel, Joakim, Jonathan & Truls aka GRAVEYARD
