Graveyard Romeos formed in 2012 as an 80’s hard rock/metal cover band and quickly amassed a large local following, breaking attendance records at several local venues. Leaning heavily on 80’s influences like Judas Priest, Skid Row, Motley Crue, and Ozzy Osbourne, Graveyard Romeos melds the old with the new, bringing a modern, heavy edge to songs that would’ve otherwise fit in perfectly with the heavy hitters of the era.
Having mainly been in original projects before this, it was a natural evolution for us to eventually begin writing our own material again, so, in late 2017, the band went into LIRCo Studios in Lexington, KY, and a few months later, emerged with the beginnings of a full length album. “We didn’t want to wait for the recording of the remaining songs to be finished, so we decided to release these first 3 songs as a teaser EP entitled, “GYR”, after the abbreviated name given to us by our fans.”
Over the years, the band has had the wonderful opportunity to have shared the stage with bands such as Drowning Pool, Saliva and Saving Abel to name just a few.
