Graveyard Train at The Metro Theatre
Once described as “horror country drunken bearded stompy chain smashy madness … ghost stories, murder ballads and tales of redemption crooned through melodies plucked directly from the afterlife”, Graveyard Train use drums, upright bass and guitars around a swirling mix of instruments with a long history of storytelling such as washboard, steel guitar, banjo, harmonica, whiskey and blood. As well as their infamous chain and hammer, it’s a winning combination that has seen them take their notorious live show throughout the US, Canada, UK, Europe and of course all over Australia, earning them legions of diehard fans along the way.
With their new album “Hollow” dropping in May the band are proud to present the first single lifted there-from I’m Gone. A rollicking stab of wild-west woe and stomping train-yard rhythms, I’m Gone bears all the hallmark Graveyard Train traits. That said, much like the upcoming album, the track also introduces a slightly wider approach than previous Graveyard Train releases. Remaining lyrically preoccupied with all things macabre, “Hollow” manages to capture the infamous live reputation and punchy story telling of the band but the Drums are bit fatter and the guitars and psychedelia turned up just a notch.
