Graveyard announce breakup

Swedish hard rockers GRAVEYARD have announced they are splitting up.

The band, cited ‘differences within the band’ as the reason why the band are splitting up and posted a full statement via their Facebook page. The statement is as follows:

“Dark clouds above the graveyard today. Due to the all so classic reason ‘differences within the band’ the GRAVEYARD is as of today officially closed. This is the unfortunate final decision we’ve had to make after going through a period of struggling n juggling with personal issues. Things have gone out of hand and now our energy is very low. As a direct result of this we’re sorry to say that all scheduled touring is cancelled. GRAVEYARD have always been more about the music than the talking and that approach is the way we intend to deal with this situation also. What we can say is that we don’t know if and when the GRAVEYARD will re-open and return in full force. Stay tuned, stay awesome & No endless night in sight.

Joakim, Axel, Truls, Jonatan”

The band’s ten year career saw the release of four full-length records, the most recent Innocence & Decadence, being released last year via Nuclear Blast Records alongside performing at some of the biggest metal festivals around the globe.
