Continuing a trend started in Monday’s post about Ghost, here is some info that was announced a few days ago by heavy blues/classic rock band Graveyard. Like that earlier post, this is happy/sad news. I’m excited as hell that these Swedes also are gracing this country with their presence. But again, the list of confirmed dates doesn’t include any stops in Western Pennsylvania or the surrounding areas.
But lest we despair prematurely, there is one big distinction between these two announcements. Unlike Ghost’s statement, which emphasized a total of thirteen “rituals” – even going so far as to incorporate the number thirteen in the name of the tour – which leaves pretty much zero hope for the possibility of additional dates, Graveyard have left theirs very open-ended – and clearly stated that more information is yet to come. So at least there’s that. I’ll be crossing my fingers and holding my breath when I pass a cemetery or whatever else is supposed to ward off bad luck.
Meanwhile, once again if you live elsewhere, feel free to peruse the tour info, and maybe you’ll be blessed with a visit from this amazing band.
