“The Graveltones live are a phenomenal experience. Watching them bulldozes any presumption of a new White Stripes or Black Keys thanks to their Bonham-esque thunder drumming and cocooning vocals.”
The Graveltones return with their brand new album ‘Love Lies Dying’ which is set for release on 31st May 2015 through Lagoon Dog Records.
To celebrate the release of their new album, The Graveltones will play at Rough Trade Nottingham on 4th June 2015. Admission to the event will be free when you pre-order or purchase the album at Rough Trade Nottingham. All details available here: http://www.roughtrade.com/events/2015/6/1310London

UK based Australian duo the Graveltones formed in late 2011, after the two members met in London’s Tin Pan Alley, brought together by a mutual love of artists as diverse as Captain Beefheart, Howlin Wolf, John Lee Hooker and QOTSA. They announced their arrival on the scene with ballsy 2013 debut album “Don’t Wait Down”. Critically acclaimed the album spawned a host of playlisted songs and saw the band tour extensively with the likes of Rival Sons, The Temperance Movement. Boss Hoss, Monster Truck, Cadillac Three and a stunning set at Download Festival 2013. They also landed sync deals with the Irish Lottery and cosmetic giants Rimmel who took advantage of their phenomenal studio sound using the bands 1st single ‘I Want Your Love’ to front their national TV advertising campaign against the face of Kate Moss. They also had the track “Forget about the trouble” featured on the national hockey league 2015 video game. band ended the year nominated for the ‘Best New Band’ award at the Classic Rock Awards.
“Love Lies Dying” sees The Graveltones come of age. They have delivered a stunning collection of songs, bristling with aggression and crackling with energy. From the laconic album opener “World On A String” to the swaggering riff fest of “Big Money”. From the surf punk of “I’m A Ghost” to the instant groove of “This Love’s Gonna Break”, this is an album that merges the piledriver drums of Mikey Sorbello with the dirty guitars and powerful vocals of Jimmy O. The album was produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost) at Orgone Studios in London.
Vocalist Jimmy O’s thoughts on the record ”It’s one of those things, when you record a bunch of songs and send them out there to play ball you hope you’ve raised them up good enough to take care of themselves, and all these songs seem to get along with each other real well. They make a good team. I think they’re gonna be alright.” Drummer Mikey adds “Recording this album felt so right, we had the right producer and engineer and the sounds just fell out of us”
