Tag: Graveyard Train
Melbourne’s Graveyard Train may have given up a bit of the tongue-in-cheek humour and supernatural subject matter in their third full-length instalment, but the loss leads us on an epic, ballad-filled journey into deep dark philosophical ponderings, reminding us that we’re all just bags of bones waiting to turn into dust.
“The concept of the band came before the band itself,” singer Nick Finch says. I’ve asked whether his infamous horror/country/chain-gang collective Graveyard Train have become more concept-focused than intended. “The idea was to have a country-horror band with a whole bunch of guys making a whole bunch of noise on stage and singing songs about death and stuff. It has really developed a lot since then; we were a lot more country in the early days, but we are not really now.” The band are getting set to launch their new album Hollows, a dark and rollicking eleven tracks of minor chords and morbid lyrics. “I wonder if fans are going to like this,” he says. “It’s a long way from where it started.”
