Graveyard Train ripped chains and hammers from hell to forge Horror Country. They are the pioneers of a new genre that will make you cry and curse and scream. Ghost stories, murder ballads and tales of redemption are crooned through melodies plucked directly from the afterlife. Haunted love, haunted souls, even haunted clothes are typical subjects covered by the songs of the Graveyard Train. These aren’t the kind of ghost stories kids tell around the campfire – they are the tales of horror whispered by inmates in the dark, the tales of bloodlust muttered by the insane, the tales of woe and regret whimpered through dying last words. Six men play men’s instruments just as men were born to do. Chain, washboard, steel guitar, banjo and harmonica – instruments with a long history of storytelling underlay six voices tempered by whiskey, blood and poverty. Graveyard train offer penance to this town of sinners. Beware the plague of locusts, beware the hail of frogs, beware the localized apocalypse that is the Graveyard Train.

“Watching them conjures the same kind of kick you might get from hearing ghost stories, but with added visceral grunt… masses have rightfully gone bananas for them.” STEPH HUGHS, TRIPLE J
