Swedish rockers GRAVEYARD have been confirmed as the direct support act on the upcoming European run for Seattle’s grunge innovators SOUNDGARDEN this September.
States the band:
"We've been pretty fucking fortunate with the bands we've had the honor to open for. It's like taking a walk through our record collections or just through rock history. When you list some of them, it comes off as pretty unreal – IRON MAIDEN, DEEP PURPLE and MOTÖRHEAD. And now - SOUNDGARDEN! Not so super unknown guys these days.
“We're super excited to head out on tour with them. In a way, it's quite logical if you think about what the roots of their and our music are. We certainly got one or two things in common there, so hopefully people will see it as good match making.
"And with the words of a Californian Rock Dude: 'Pretty fuckin’ bad-ass musicians that can deliver a bunch of face-melting jams and shred like there's no tomorrow!'
"There isn't really much more to say than that."
