Ages come and go, epochs emerge and abate like the storm, but some things are eternal. The heavy metal act known as Gravemind move forward into 2022 with a new and refined era for the band.
Today, Gravemind release their hotly anticipated brand new single, Deathtouch, with new vocalist, Bailey Schembri on Greyscale Records.
“All four of us are so excited for the new era of Gravemind to be shown to the world, it’s the strongest our lineup has felt musically and it’s reinvigorated us after two heavily interrupted years. Getting to debut Bailey at Unify and play Deathtouch for the first time is making us all feel like kids again and it’s gonna be such a surreal feeling to be up on that festival stage again, doing what we love.” says the band.
They add, “Deathtouch is about an ancient alien race that had facilitated the creation of our civilised world Bonded with our DNA to create born leaders to sit on their thrones controlling their regions on earth and ultimately leading to our demise.”
Deathtouch is only the tip of what’s to come for what promises to be a huge year for Gravemind. They’ll be performing at Unify Gathering 2022 on March 10 and packing their bags and passports to support Polaris in Europe and the UK throughout September 2022.
“The future of the band is looking stronger every day. After our lineup change, we had to reshuffle jobs and learn new things, it was a lot to process. But the willingness to all work together to get to where we are now is exciting and we know we’ve only got better songs to come out after this, a lot that we’ve been sitting on for such a long time. Deathtouch is only the tip of the iceberg for how we’ve refined our sound.”
The four piece released their debut album ‘Conduit’ to critical acclaim and a top 30 ARIA album charting spot, which was swiftly followed by multiple tours around Australia supporting August Burns Red, In Hearts Wake, Thy Art Is Murder, and Northlane. Now the act turns their attention to the international stages, and their new single Deathtouch proves that their future is anything they will it to be.
