On the heels of their recent West Coast tour dates with Sirenia and Threat Signal and the successful launch of their acclaimed sophomore album Ambition’s Price, the California-based symphonic metal quintet GRAVESHADOW has announced their inaugural headlining tour. The two-week summer trek will kick off in Reno, Nevada on July 13 and wrap up in the group’s hometown of Sacramento on July 27. Almost 2 years to the date of their last Treasure Valley performance with Unleash the Archers, Graveshadow will return to The Shredder on Sunday, July 22nd. They will be joined by Boise’s own Tulpaa who made their debut at that very same show two years ago. Tickets for the show are only $8 and available here. This is an event not to be missed.
Says vocalist Heather Michele:
“We are very excited to finally be going on our first headlining tour! We’re looking forward to playing longer sets and visiting all our wonderful friends and fans that we’ve had the pleasure of meeting in the past. Get ready, West Coast – we’re coming for you!”
Upon its release last month, Ambition’s Price – GRAVESHADOW‘s M-Theory Audio debut – appeared on Billboard’s Top New Artists (Heatseekers), Current Hard Music and Top Independent Albums charts. The album, which sees the group deftly mix symphonic and gothic metal with elements of doom, thrash and epic progressive power metal, was mixed by Armand John Anthony (Night Demon, Gygax) and mastered by Colin Davis (Deeds of Flesh, Decrepit Birth). The cover was designed by Serbian fantasy artist Dusan Markovic (Jag Panzer, Mystic Prophecy, A Sound of Thunder).
Metal Nation hailed the new album as:
…not simply a fantastic record, but legitimately one of the best of 2018. With Ambition’s Price, Graveshadow has taken what has become a somewhat complacent and stagnant style of metal and breathed fresh life into it, creating something vibrant and memorable. Graveshadow has captured a dark magic on Ambition’s Price, and producer Armand John Anthony (Night Demon) helped them masterfully in that pursuit.”
GRAVESHADOW recently released a music video for the song “Warchief,” which serves as the closing chapter of their “Call Of The Frostwolves” trilogy. The clip, which was directed by Mike Sloat (Testament, Machine Head), can below.
