After going through a period of “struggling and juggling with personal issues,” Swedish rockers GRAVEYARD have officially called it a day.
The band — which most recently consisted of guitarist and vocalist Joakim Nilsson, guitarist Jonatan Larocca-Ramm, drummer Axel Sjöberg and bassist Truls Mörck — released four full-length albums, the latest one being 2015’s “Innocence & Decadence”.
The band says in a statement: “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 and 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 canceled.
“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 and no endless night in sight.”
GRAVEYARD had four German dates scheduled for October and was slated to play at Desertfest in Antwerp, Belgium next month.
