22nd February 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Hi all,
Vaughan here, thanks for checking out the latest update. We’ve had another good week of content and interaction. I posted a new video update on YouTube Saturday and I posted a new episode of the podcast on Monday. The links are below, and please consider subscribing to both if you haven’t already, it’d be great to push past 200 YouTube subscribers in particular!

I’ve been working on a remix of “Plugged Into The System” and I’m hopeful of releasing that in some form this year. I’ve also been going through live audio from the last decade or so to see if there’s some diamonds in the rough. I am feeling extremely motivated right now, it’s an exciting time!

Thanks again everyone and stayed tuned for lots of cool stuff as we celebrate 20 years of Grave Forsaken!

God Bless and Rock On!

15th February 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Hi everyone,

Vaughan here, thanks for once again reading the latest update. I had a busy week catching up with every recent member of Grave Forsaken! Luke is over from Nashville, so I caught up with him on Tuesday and Sunday. I had dinner with Tim last Friday night, then I paid Elias a visit on Monday during the day. To top it all off, I went to Blind Guardian with Matt on Monday night! It has been a long time since I hung out with all those guys within such a short space of time. We discussed plans for both the present and the future. It was great to touch base with everyone and get their opinions about where the band is at.

As usual I've been busy behind the scenes making some new content. Last Saturday I posted a video update on YouTube, if you haven't already please check it out at https://youtu.be/S0PvusBkDGA 

Also, earlier this week I posted Episode 31 of the Grave Forsaken Podcast. You can check it out at https://spotifyanchor-web.app.link/e/2P1LhlJ7aHb or on most major podcast platforms. Please subscribe to our Mailing List, YouTube Channel and Podcast as well, that way you'll never miss an update.

As well as all that, work has continued behind the scenes on a number of projects that we will announce as they are ready over the course of the year. Like I've been hinting, we've got good things planned for 2024, our 20th anniversary year!

God Bless and Rock On!

8th February 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Hi all,

Vaughan here, thanks for reading this update. There is currently a lot going on in the Grave Forsaken camp as we get the ball rolling on the next round of activities. In particular, there has been substantial progress towards releasing new music in 2024. Those following closely will know I’ve been hinting at this for a little while now. The wheels are definitely in motion, so stay tuned for announcements!

I have been active in posting content across multiple platforms over the last few weeks. I would encourage you all to subscribe to the Grave Forsaken Podcast and give it a listen if you haven’t been doing so already. Effort is being put into posting regular episodes! The same goes for updates on the Grave Forsaken YouTube channel, I’ve posted a couple in recent weeks, with plans for it to be a regular thing. Please subscribe to the channel so you don’t miss an update! Also follow us on Facebook, Instagram and X if you are so inclined.

Along with prepping new music, I’ve been working on doing a remix of our 2013 release “Plugged Into The System”. I’ve learned a lot in the process of preparing the next album, and I’m going back and applying that to the songs on that release. If the remix is satisfactory, we may well upload it to streaming services, and if the demand were there, perhaps even do a limited physical run. Let me know if that is something that would interest you. It’s a labour of love, so there’s no timeframe, but I am enjoying revisiting those tracks.

I was thrilled to catch up with our lead guitarist Luke this week. He now lives in Nashville, but he is here in Perth for a couple of weeks visiting family and friends. I filled him in on the status of all our projects, along with a general life check in. I’m so happy for Luke pursuing his career in Nashville, but I sure do miss hanging out with him face to face!

Thanks for taking the time to read this update, and keep a lookout for the next one soon!

God Bless and Rock On!

1st February 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Vaughan here, thanks for reading the update, we appreciate your support. It’s been another good week for the band, I’ve been enjoying the continued interactions on social media. I’ve been seeing increased Spotify numbers lately, so thanks to all of you who have been listening to us!

A new video update was posted on YouTube on Saturday, check it out on the Grave Forsaken YouTube Channel. I also posted a new Grave Forsaken Podcast episode on Monday, so check that out if podcasts are your thing.

We’re gearing up for some band get togethers this year. In preparation I’ve been practising a variety of songs, old and new. I can’t wait to spend more time with the guys! 

Of course, there are always things going on behind the scenes to bring you new music. I’m so excited about the next batch of songs! It’ll be worth the wait.

So listen to a Grave Forsaken song or album, check out the latest video update and podcast, and maybe even buy some music or merch from Soundmass or Anchor.

25th January 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Vaughan here, thanks for reading the latest update. I recently returned from a family holiday in Albany, a city in the southern part of Western Australia. It was a great time, we had a chance to unwind and spent a few days away from it all.

I’ve also been busy bringing regular social media updates. It’s actually quite astounding how blessed we’ve been. Our music and merch are available in a good number of locations and we’re fortunate to have a dedicated group of people of supporting us. I have high hopes for the future of the band and I’m really excited about all the possible projects we could sink our teeth into in the coming years.

Please continue to follow us on social media and like the posts, I have been finding it helps a great deal. Also consider buying a Grave Forsaken CD or shirt. It goes without saying the more of those items we can sell, the more attractive our band is to the people who sell them, which means more potential music and merch releases. Christian Band Shirts and Anchor Merchandising are our official merch suppliers, while Soundmass is our official music supplier. Supporting us also supports those great companies!

Also be sure to subscribe to our official podcast on Spotify or Apple Podcasts. I recently recorded two episodes from my holiday. I really do love podcasts, and I thoroughly enjoy bringing you ours. On a side note I’ve been listening to Area 312 podcast lately, I thoroughly recommend it!

That’s all for this update, thanks for your time and support.

God Bless and Rock On!

18th January 2024 - Latest from the band 

G'day everyone,

Vaughan here, coming to you from Albany in Western Australia. I'm on a family holiday but I'm still committed to bringing you regular updates. It's very relaxing down here, good to get away from it all for a few days. 

There's been plenty going on behind the scenes and I look forward to exciting things happening in 2024. I know that's not giving much away but I don't want to say too much before everything is lined up. Suffice to say there is news coming in the not too distant future.

It's been great to have the continued interactions on social media. Thanks to everyone who has liked a post or sent us a message, we've been getting good engagement levels recently and I've had a lot of fun putting out content and seeing the reactions. It's heartening to know there are lots of you who love and support our little band!

I recorded episode 21 of the Grave Forsaken Podcast down here in Albany, that has been uploaded to all major platforms. Please subscribe to the podcast and check it out!

Until next time…

God Bless and Rock On!

G'day everyone,

Vaughan here, I hope you're all doing well. It's been a great couple of weeks for the band. A lot is going on behind the scenes and I look forward to announcing some cool things as they come up over the next few months. I've been busy on social media and that has been resulting in a lot of communication with a wide variety of people. I think we've gained some new supporters! Our Spotify streams have been steadily increasing, a great sign that more people are coming on board.

I recently posted episode 20 of the Grave Forsaken Podcast, so have a listen to that for my latest musings. It's available on all major platforms.

Also, we recently got some airplay on Radio13.FM. A huge thank you to them! That was something new and unexpected. Hopefully there will be a lot more of that sort of thing to come!

I'll keep it brief, so until next time…

God Bless and Rock On!
