Sweden's GRAVEYARD Is Back!

Sweden's GRAVEYARD Is Back!

Only four months after announcing that they were calling it quits, Swedish rockers GRAVEYARD have reformed. The band's new lineup will not include drummer Axel Sjöberg, who is apparently focusing on his new outfit called BIG KIZZ.

GRAVEYARD — which most recently consisted of Sjöberg slongside guitarist and vocalist Joakim Nilsson, guitarist Jonatan Larocca-Ramm, and bassist Truls Mörck — released four full-length albums, the latest one being 2015's "Innocence & Decadence".

In a new statement on Facebook announcing GRAVEYARD's return, the band wrote: "Living isn't always easy and playing in a band doesn't tend to make the noble art of living well any easier.

"Things weren't working and in the end a change in the lineup was the only option for our return.

"GRAVEYARD's journey will continue with a yet to be named new future drummer and the reasons behind this change of scenery are something that we don't want, wish or will comment on. We're gonna leave it be with Axel's own words: 'Word on the street is that there is a job opening in the drummer's section.'

"We wish Axel all the best and you can follow his next move with his already set to fly new outfit BIG KIZZ. We'd also like to apologize to each and every one of you out there for putting you through these uncertain GRAVEYARD times.

"With that said, we're beyond glad to announce that as of today the GRAVEYARD is officially re-opened for business. Albums will be recorded, shows will be played and all of this hopefully for a long, long time to come."

GRAVEYARD's breakup in September 2016 was attributed to "the all-so-classic reason 'differences within the band.'" The group explained at the time: "This is the unfortunate final decision we've had to make after going through a period of struggling and juggling with personal issues. Things have gone out of hand and now our energy is very low."
