The Graveyard Bookies have officially released their debut EP, featuring four tracks that showcase their unique blend of old-school metal and blues-based rock with modern influences. The focus track, ‘Johnny Two Sheds‘, is a high-energy, guitar-driven anthem that perfectly captures the band’s raw and raucous sound.
Formed in February of last year by guitarist and vocalist Geoff Kinch, The Graveyard Bookies enlisted the help of good friends Ian Yabsley on drums and Matt Sparks on bass, both of whom had previously played together in The Thudpuckers. After completing four original songs, the band welcomed lead guitarist Brian Lamb to the lineup, adding the perfect complement to their dynamic sound.
Despite setbacks and delays caused by COVID-19 and other unforeseen circumstances, The Graveyard Bookies persevered and completed their EP, featuring the hard-hitting tracks ‘Over Now‘, ‘Last Train‘, and ‘We’ve Come For You All‘ in addition to ‘Johnny Two Sheds‘.
The video for ‘Johnny Two Sheds‘ was filmed at Geoff Kinch’s house in January 2023, and the band is excited to share their music with fans across the country. The Graveyard Bookies have already begun booking shows and plan to rehearse for their first full-length album, which is scheduled to start recording in December 2023.
“We’re thrilled to finally release our debut EP and share our music with the world,” says Geoff Kinch. “We’ve been working hard on this project for over a year, and we’re excited to see where it takes us. We hope our fans enjoy the EP and look forward to seeing them at our shows.”
The Graveyard Bookies‘ debut EP is available now on all major streaming platforms.
