DOWNLOAD: Graveyard - Thin Line from their self-titled LP (mp3)


J.Mascis's other other band, the doom-inspired Witch, will do a short stint of dates this month, opening their tour at the aforementioned Tee Pee Records showcase on March 12 and concluding on March 20, two days after the release of their killer record Paralyzed. Check them out at Luna Lounge in Brooklyn on March 19 (tickets here). Swedish 70s throwback rockers (NOT Witchcraft) Graveyard will open the show, playing tunes off of their grand self-titled effort. DEFINITELY a recommended album for fans of that other swedish 70s doom band or fans of Pentagram. Video and tour dates below....
