Graveyard Club

Graveyard Club (Matthew Schufman (vocals, synths), Michael Wojtalewicz (guitar), Cory Jacobs (drums), and Amanda Zimmerman (bass, vocals) began inspired by a unique list of shared interests: the classic short stories of sci-fi author Ray Bradbury, the music of Ryan Gosling’s little-known band Dead Man’s Bones, and a fascination with both '50s crooners and '80s pop music.

With an ever-growing reputation as one of Minneapolis' most entertaining and moving live acts, Graveyard Club has released three albums and an EP of their haunting brand of synthpop. They perform regularly at top Twin Cities venues (First Avenue & 7th Str Entry, Fitzgerald Theater, Icehouse), and have toured nationally - supporting artists such as Elliot Moss, The Drums, Methyl Ethel, Cayucas, San Fermin, Beverly, and others. In 2018 and 2019 they performed at the Iceland Airwaves Festival in Reyjkavik.

Graveyard Club's songs have also been featured in television and film on MTV, HBO, and Netflix, amongst many others, and they continue to receive critical acclaim from local, national, and international press. Recorded remotely throughout the early stages of the pandemic, the band’s fourth LP, Moonflower, will be released in June 2022.

The Minneapolis quartet Graveyard Club makes moody synth rock befitting its name. “William,” a standout from the group’s album “Goodnight Paradise,” out Friday, is a brooding, yearning electro-goth song about reflecting on death to learn something about life. If it hasn’t been plucked to soundtrack “emotional realization” moments on screens of all sizes, music supervisors are sleeping on it.

CARYN GANZ, The New York Times

Whether you grew up with New Order, The Cure, The Smiths, or Echo & the Bunnymen or dig artists like Real Estate, DIIV, Wild Nothing, The Drums, or Arcade Fire this band and album are for you. Graveyard Club draws from, and connects, these great artists while having a unique and expressive voice all their own. Goodnight Paradise is a beautiful record. It's honest, melodic, catchy, layered and simple yet complex - it's a perfect pop album.
