Graveyard Club has revealed their latest single “Rose Vine” from their new album Moonflower, due out June 17th, 2022. It follows previous singles, “Nowhere,” and “Halloween”. The Twin Cities-based band will celebrate the release of the new album with a hometown show on July 30th at Fine Line.
Matthew Schufman talks about the new single:
Rose Vine began as a re-worked demo from the ‘Goodnight Paradise’ days. It was kind of approached as an old doo-wop song paired with The Strokes. We changed the main synth tone maybe 5 or 6 times, and ended up using the original synth from the demo. Rose Vine might win the ‘most lyrics’ award from the Graveyard Club catalog.
Graveyard Club have spent the intervening years since the release of Goodnight Paradise “reflecting and reassessing the trajectory of their own personal lives”. Schufman has a large hand painted wooden sign purchased at a Minneapolis antiques shop hanging in his dining room, emblazoned with the word “bittersweet”, a word he feels fits the record perfectly.
Graveyard Club are Matthew Schufman (vocals, synths), Michael Wojtalewicz (guitar), Cory Jacobs (drums) and Amanda Zimmerman (bass, vocals). The band began over “a shared love of 50’s crooners, sci-fi novels, John Hughes films, and 80’s pop music”.
