13th June 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Hi all,
Vaughan from Grave Forsaken here, thanks for checking out this latest update!

As always we’d like to thank everyone who has purchased a CD from Soundmass or picked up some merch from Anchor Merchandising. This is the best way to support the band! Our latest album is “Moment In Time” and we’d greatly appreciate you supporting the release!

We continue to post podcast episodes and YouTube video updates weekly. It’s been great to see the steady numbers from week to week. Check them out if you haven’t already, it’d be great to see the numbers gradually grow.

I’m in the process of getting a couple of my guitars serviced. Part of that is replacing the pickups on them, it’s one of those tasks I’ve been wanting to get done for ages. I got one of them back from the guitar shop today and it’s amazing how good it sounds and feels with a bit of TLC. I’m sure I’ll be inspired to come up with some new ideas on these old faithful guitars!

I’ll keep the update brief this week, I can’t believe it’s Wednesday again! Thanks for your continued support and like I always say…

God Bless and Rock On!

30th May 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Hi all,

Vaughan here, I hope you're all doing well. Thanks again for your continued support of the band!

As has been the case all year, a new video update was posted on YouTube last Saturday and a new podcast was posted last Monday. We have a very consistent posting schedule, so check out previous uploads and look out for new ones in the coming week. It's been really great to bring you all regular updates this year.

I was pleased to get myself a new laptop recently. My old one was slowly dying, so it was necessary to upgrade. I've been busy installing everything and transferring all the files I need. The old laptop was getting so slow, I'm sure this will lead to a productivity upgrade for our current batch of Grave Forsaken projects. My focus first up is to get the “Light The Hall” CD reissue sorted out. One project at a time!

For Grave Forsaken music and merch please check out Soundmass and Anchor Merchandising. They are great suppliers and both sell quality products. Every CD or merch item you buy helps the band in our Christian metal mission!  

Thanks again for reading the update and you'll hear from us again next week!

God Bless and Rock On!

23rd May 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Hi all, Vaughan from Grave Forsaken here. Thanks for checking out this latest update!

Thanks for your continued contribution to the Twenty Years compilation track-list, we’ll continue to add your suggestions, so keep them coming in via email or private message.

I got myself a newer, faster laptop today, so that will make a huge difference with band related projects. I was finding my old laptop was getting so slow that it had become a demotivating factor in getting work done. I’m looking forward to transferring across to the new one and progressing the current batch of projects. Ultimately I want to tick them off then get working on the next studio album!

Please subscribe to our podcast and YouTube channel if you haven’t already. We continue to post regular updates so make sure you keep up to date with everything Grave Forsaken. A video update was posted  last Saturday and a podcast episode was posted last Monday.

Thanks again for your support of the band via Soundmass and Anchor Merchandising. Please consider grabbing a “Moment In Time” CD or shirt if you haven’t already. Every sale helps!

Thanks again everyone. Look out for new updates on both YouTube and via podcast in the coming days and you’ll hear from us again soon.

God Bless and Rock On!

2nd May 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Vaughan from Grave Forsaken here. I hope you’re all going well! It’s been a steady week for the band, I’ve continued to plug away on a few projects in the background. In 2024 I’m determined to do a bit each day to move the band forward. Don’t forget to send me your favourite tracks for our prospective 20th anniversary compilation, that’s one of the projects!

On Saturday a new video update was uploaded on YouTube and on Monday a new episode of the podcast was uploaded. I’d encourage you all to get around the videos and podcasts, it’s a great way to get great insight into the band.

A huge thanks to everyone who has streamed or purchased our music this week. Head over to Soundmass.com for CDs, including our latest “Moment In Time”! Also a huge thanks to all of you have purchased merch and worn it in your local neighbourhood. There’s a great range of Grave Forsaken gear available at anchormerchandising.com so head over there and grab yourself some!

Matt, Tim and I are going to meet up again shortly for rehearsal. For the time being it will just be the three of us due to Elias and Luke no longer living here in Perth. I’m sure those guys will still appear on albums in the future but playing with us live isn’t currently possible. We plan to lock down a tight set list then look to play some shows once we’ve got the music sorted!

That’s all for this update. Thanks for your continued support and you’ll hear from us again soon!

God Bless and Rock On!

April 25th 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Vaughan here, thanks for checking out the latest update. Thanks to everyone who has checked out the new album “Moment In Time”, we’re really happy with the streaming numbers we’ve been getting, particularly on Spotify! We are at a far higher  number of monthly listeners than we were expecting, so that has been an incredible blessing.

As has been the case for some time now there was a new video update on YouTube plus a new Podcast episode posted this week. Please check those out and subscribe to both so you never miss an update!

We are prepping a track list for a prospective 20th anniversary compilation. We’d love your feedback, so please send us a list of your favourite Grave Forsaken songs and help us decide what to include!

We will soon be arranging the date of our next band rehearsal. Matt, Tim and I are super keen to get a great live set prepped. We’ll be sure to let you know how it goes plus update you with photos on social media.

To further support the band please consider buying a CD from Soundmass or some merch from Anchor Merchandising. Every bit helps not only us, but those two great suppliers as well!

Thanks again for your interactions on social media this week and your support in general. Feel free to get in touch anytime via email or PM. We hope you have a great week and you’ll hear from us again soon!

God Bless and Rock On!

April 18th 2024 - Grave Forsaken Update 

Vaughan here, welcome to the latest update. It continues to be an exciting year for the band. We have been really happy with the streaming numbers for “Moment In Time”. It has been our best album launch yet streaming wise, something we are pleased to have achieved 20 years into our history!

Matt and I had our first rehearsal for some time on Friday night just gone. Tim was away on holiday, but we plan to meet up at the rehearsal studio again soon. Matt and I cranked the amps and came up with a solid set list that covers our entire recording history. We have one song from each album and EP, for a total of 12 tracks. We will need to operate as 3 piece for the foreseeable future given that Luke has moved to Nashville and records his album parts remotely these days.

Now that the album is released, I've switched my focus to some other Grave Forsaken projects. I'm gradually getting the back catalogue on bandcamp, and I've nearly got through that task. After that we will be doing limited CD runs of some of the older releases that are either running low or were never on CD in the first place. I'm tentatively working on a live bootleg release as well, but we'll assess the sound quality before deciding whether to release it or not.

The other project we're just starting to think about is “Twenty Years”, our next compilation album. With this project, we'd love your feedback. Send us a list of your favourite Grave Forsaken tracks and we'll start working out what to put on it! 

As always there was a new Grave Forsaken video update posted on YouTube on Saturday and a new Grave Forsaken podcast episode posted on Monday. Please check those out and subscribe so you never miss an update!
