Fresh off the back of landing a nomination for Best New Band of 2013 in this year's prestigious Classic Rock Awards , London's hotly tipped, blues soaked, garage rock 'n' rollers The Graveltones are excited to announce their highly anticipated debut album 'Don't Wait Down' which is set for release on October 21 through the band's ow n independent label Lagoon Dog Records , distributed by RSK Entertainment .    

The album will be preceded by 'Catch Me On The Fly' , the first single to be taken from the album, which is due for digital release on August 26.

With lyrics being compared to Bob Dylan, riffs to Rage Against The Machine, vocals to Howling Wolf and beats to Bonham, it's easy to see why the dynamic duo have been stirring up such a frenzy on the London scene amongst music press and fans alike. Having amassed a dedicated following, The Graveltones ' Jimmy O (vocals/guitar) and Mikey Sorbello (drums) smashed their way through their crowd sourced album campaign with revoluti onary music platform Pledge Music in record time this summer.

The album features 10 tracks recorded at Monnow Valley and Miloco Studios and produced by The Graveltones along with the renowned producer Charlie Francis ( REM , The Noisettes , Future Of The Left ). The release of Don't Wait Down comes at the end of what has already been a hugely successful year for The Graveltones, having released their eponymous debut EP to rave reviews with Londonist naming them #1 in the 'Top London bands to watch in 2012' .

The band's recent nomination for this year's Classic Rock Awards in the Best New Band 2013 category is the latest in a long line of achievements that the remar kable pair have already conquered before the world has even heard their full debut album , and sets them firmly amongst some of this year's most incendiary buzz bands including The Temperance Movement , Deap Vally, Walking Papers and Hey! Hello to name a few.  Vocalist/guitarist Jimmy O comments: "We never expected this, it's a real honour to be nominated for the Classic Rock Awards Best New Band, to be amongst s o many great bands means a lot!"

The band are set to play a top secret exclusive launch gig in London on September 17 for Pledg ers and industry, with a limited number of ticke ts being made available for the public to win. See the band's facebook page for details.
