GRAF ORLOCK European tour

Graf Orlock begins a month's tour of Europe this week. True to the band's rep for touring off the beaten path, this trek sees Graf Orlock venture deep into Eastern Europe, including shows in Serbia, Slovakia, Slovenia, and beyond, as well as more familiar Western European locales. 

Of Graf Orlock's latest EP, Los Angeles, LA Weekly declared, "[Graf Orlock] have created what may be their masterpiece". Alternative Press defined the band's sound as "a scramble of screams, blastbeats, and piranha-tank guitars".

Graf Orlock features guitarist/vocalist Justin Smith, also frontman for Ghostlimb and owner of Vitriol Records. While Graf Orlock is delivering its Hollywood-inspired hardcore across the globe, Ghostlimb's fourth album, Confluence, will be hitting stores, with a release date of July 10 on Vitriol. Pre-order Ghostlimb's Confluence here.
