official news - 2001-12-19 00:00

2001-12-19 00:00 - At the 01.01. of 2002 the GRAVE DIGGER website will be relaunched. The whole page will be changed and it got a complete new design which is very simular to our new record. Also the webmaster will change and we want to say a BIG THANX to Daniel our webmaster today. He did a great job the last year and all Grave Digger members were very happy with his support. You will find the new contact adress on our relaunched site.

We also want to inform you that we found a name for the LIVE CD/DVD : "TUNES OF WACKEN". The release date for the LIVE CD will be at the end of March and for the DVD April. The record and DVD will be released by GUN Records and the release politic can`t be influenced by the band..

At the end of January GUN Records will release also a Best of Grave Digger and here`s our opinion to this release :

We would explicitly like to point out that this compilation came out without our co-operation. We explicitly dissociate from this release as we think, that this is just getting the money out of the pockets of the fans. This record is no merit "Best Of" of the band, as it doesn't consider the whole bandhistory.

Next week we start to mix the LIVE CD in the Principal Studios in Senden. The producers are THE RESETTI BROTHERS (Jörg Umbreit & Vince Sorg) and Chris.
After that we start with the rehearsels for the tour. The concept for the show and the playlist are ready to go and we`ll play 18 songs including a medley of old famous songs. After the tour we start cuting the DVD and the we start out South Europe playing Italy, Spain and France. And watch out for the new shirt collection we`ll bring on tour !!! We`ll keep you updated as usual !!!!
