Long-running German metallers GRAVE DIGGER will enter the studio in June to begin recording their new album for an early 2017 release. The band will support fellow Germans BLIND GUARDIAN on a North American tour this fall. GRAVE DIGGER’s last CD was “Exhumation – The Early Years”, a 35th-anniversary album containing re-recorded versions of the band’s “absolute classics with a dynamic and powerful sound of 2015,” according to a press release.
