Gothenburg, Sweden-based psychedelic doom rock band GRAVEYARD will support MOTRHEAD on the German leg of their European tour in November.

Commented GRAVEYARD: "This year is getting more and more unbelievable for us. As it if it wasn't enough that we got the chance to open for [IRON] MAIDEN in our hometown, now we're gonna go on tour with the essence of rock 'n' roll MOTRHEAD!! Once again we feel deeply honoured to get a sort of approval to step into rock history by opening for MOTRHEAD. And when you're talking about MOTRHEAD, there's no way of getting around talking about Lemmy. That cat has always been an inspiration to us, all the way from Sam Gopal to MOTRHEAD. Not only musically through his combination of psychedelia, rock and punk. But also through his relentlessness, something we hold very high in the GRAVEYARD camp. But let's not forget that we also get to go on tour with a fellow Gothenburger Mikkey Dee the magic stikks wizard!

GRAVEYARD will support MOTRHEAD on the following dates:

Nov. 23 - Berlin, Germany - Coulmbiahalle
Nov. 24 - Leipzig, Germany - Haus Auensee
Nov. 26 - Munich, Germany - Zenith
Nov. 27 - Stuttgart, Germany - Schleyerhalle
Nov. 29 - Dusseldorf, Germany - Philipshalle
Nov. 30 - Hamburg, Germany - Sporthalle

"Hisingen Blues", the second full-length album from GRAVEYARD, sold 1,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 48 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

"Hisingen Blues" entered the official chart in Sweden at position No. 1. The CD, which was released in North America on April 19 via Nuclear Blast Records, was produced, recorded, and mixed in 100 percent analog by Don Alsterberg (JOS GONZALES, JUNIP, SOUNDTRACK OF OUR LIVES, THE INTERNATIONAL NOISE CONSPIRACY) at Don Pierre Studios in Gothenburg, Sweden.
