NUCLEAR BLAST has issued the following:
Classic rock outfit GRAVEYARD is nominated for the best album of the year with ”Hisingen Blues“ by Classic Rock magazine’s Roll Of Honour!
To let the band and their masterpiece receive this well-deserved award, please participate in the voting HERE!
Furthermore, the re-release of their debut ”Graveyard“ is available since last Friday.
Seeing the big success of their second record “Hisingen Blues”, the band as well as the label decided to re-issue their stunning and nowadays hard-to-find self-titled debut album which gained a lot of attention in the underground on its initial release back in 2007. The album contains all tracks of the original release also featuring the original sound to experience the true and pure essence of GRAVEYARD – even a bit rawer than what you know from their current masterpiece “Hisingen Blues”.
Get the record via the Nuclear Blast online shop or as an iTunes download with an exclusive bonus track and a digital booklet: http://bit.ly/graveyarditunes

Timo Jelencovich, the younger brother of former MNEMIC and current M.A.N/TRANSPORT LEAGUE frontman Tony Jelencovich, was found dead yesterday (Saturday, August 20) at 6 p.m. in Bergsjön, a district in eastern Gothenburg, Sweden. It is suspected that he was murdered, thrown to his death from the balcony of a sixth-floor apartment. One person has already been arrested in connection with the incident and several witnesses have been interrogated. More information (in Swedish) can be found in this article from Göteborgs-Posten.
TRANSPORT LEAGUE is scheduled to enter IF Studios, the IN FLAMES-owned facility in Gothenburg, Sweden, with producer Roberto Laghi (IN FLAMES, SONIC SYNDICATE, HARDCORE SUPERSTAR, LOK) on September 2 to begin recording its comeback album, tentatively titled “Boogie From Hell”.
