Having just finished a successful UK tour with The Temperance Movement, London’s hotly-tipped garage rock ‘n’ rollers THE GRAVELTONES are now set to embark on a 14-date arena tour of Europe as main support to German platinum-selling band THE BOSSHOSS commencing on Oct 17, and finishing with a London show as support to super group THE DEAD DAISIES at The Underworld on Nov 20.
The tour will see the band play to crowds of up to 10,000 a night in Luxemburg, Switzerland, Germany and Austria in support of their highly anticipated debut album ‘Don’t Wait Down’, due for release on Oct 21 worldwide.
The album features 10 tracks recorded at Monnow Valley and Miloco Studios and produced by The Graveltones along with the renowned producer Charlie Francis (REM, The Noisettes, Future Of The Left).
The release of 'Don't Wait Down' comes at the end of what has already been a hugely successful year for The Graveltones, having smashed their Pledge Music album campaign in unbelievable time, completed UK tours with American rockers Rival Sons and The Temperance Movement , performed at Download Festival and landed sync deals with the Irish Lottery and cosmetic giants Rimmel for their national TV advertising campaign against the face of Kate Moss.
The band’s recent nomination for this year’s Classic Rock Awards in the Best New Band 2013 category is the latest in a long line of achievements that the remarkable pair have already conquered before the world has even heard their full debut album, and sets them firmly amongst some of this year’s most incendiary buzz bands including The Temperance Movement, Deap Vally, Walking Papers and Hey! Hello to name a few.
‘Don’t Wait Down’ is set for worldwide release on October 21 via Lagoon Dog Records distributed by RSK Entertainment.

"Demonic vocals, thunderous drums and lusty live performances. What more could you ask for?" Classic Rock Magazine
"The Graveltones live are a phenomenal experience. Watching them bulldozes any presumption of a new White Stripes or Black Keys thanks to their Bonham-esque thunder drumming and cocooning vocals." Londonist
"Here are two absolutely amazing musicians making it look so easy to be just that good... Just on the cusp of a breakthrough... [it] is going to be a massive year for The Graveltones." The Grapevine
