Graveyard Club "Witchcraft" Single Release
Witchcraft is the first new music from Minneapolis synth-darlings since 2017's "Ouija", and the first from their new forthcoming full-length record due in 2018. Sonically, the band shimmer and are bigger than ever before with the help of engineer/producer Andy Thompson (Dessa, jeremy messersmith, Belle and Sebastian). This new track finds the band bridging familiar spaces from 80's synths to 50's crooners creating a distinctly nostalgic feel for a place and time you feel you know intimately, but never really existed. It's Twin Peaks in Cathedral Hill and Boris Karloff at the Under-The-Sea prom of your dreams, because "Darling, your love is like witchcraft."
Graveyard Club (Matthew Schufman (vocals, synths), Michael Wojtalewicz (guitar), Cory Jacobs (drums) and Amanda Zimmerman (bass, vocals) began inspired by a unique list of shared interests: the classic short stories of sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, the music of Ryan Gosling’s little-known band Dead Man’s Bones, and a fascination with both 50’s crooners and 80’s pop music. With an ever-growing reputation as one of Minneapolis' most entertaining and moving live acts, Graveyard Club has released two albums and an EP of their haunting brand of synthpop. They perform at top Twin Cities venues (Fitzgerald Theater, 7th Street Entry, Turf Club) and have toured nationally - supporting artists such as Elliot Moss, The Drums, Methyl Ethel, Cayucas, San Fermin, Beverly and others. Graveyard Club's songs have been featured on television for MTV, E!, and more. They continue to receive critical acclaim from local, national, and international press, and were a Minneapolis Star Tribune 2017 Are You Local? finalist for best new band. In November 2017 the band released the single, Ouija, and performed at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reykjavik. A new full-length record is due in 2018.
