Early this year the band reconvened to inhabit a studio space. Songs came quickly and they walked away from the desk with a new record and realisation that when they were writing, recording and putting on some of the finest live shows around, they were unstoppable.
That reinforcement is tattooed on record opener, lead single and title track, ‘Takes One To Know One’. It encapsulates both a childish insult and the driving sound of classic Graveyard Train. Repeated listens of the entire LP reveals gems and oddities buried in a sublime, sometimes tortured marriage of country music, stoner rock, classic Graveyard gang vocals, haunting storytelling and the stellar musicianship that dyed-in-the-wool fans of the band have come to expect.
With their new record under their arm, and their own record label, Black Hat Rackets, Graveyard Train have paired up with revered European label Cargo Records to release the new record to a worldwide audience ahead of a national run of dates, dovetailing into a month-long European tour across July and August.
Out now through Black Hat Rackets.
