An e-card for GRAVE DIGGER's new maxi-single, "Yesterday", which was released on October 10, is available at this location.

For the "Yesterday" single, vocalist Chris Boltendahl, guitarist Mani Schmidt, bassist Jens Becker, drummer Stefan Arnold and keyboardist HP Katzenburg took the song from the cult favorite "Heavy Metal Breakdown" album, and have combined it with a new song, "The Reaper's Dance", as well as their cover of "No Quarter", which previously appeared on a LED ZEPPELIN tribute album. An orchestral version of "Yesterday" rounds out the CD portion of this double-disc. Packaged within this ambitious project is a special DVD, taken from the band's performance at Spain's Rock Machina Festival in 2001.

GRAVE DIGGER will embark on a European co-headlining tour with THERION in January/February.
