Marty Graveyard - Summer Holiday OUT JUNE 21ST

The eagerly awaited "Summer Holiday" has arrived unlike this years actual summer which seems to be taking a holiday of its own, still, not to worry, this album will brighten up the cloudy days and put a smile back on your face.
Marty Graveyard was the drummer with Power Pop beat combo The Madd, he also wrote the excellent songs "I Know" and "Into The Sun" recorded by the band, so it comes as no surprise that he has released his own solo album and plays virtually everything on the album himself with a few guest vocalists, including ex band mate Dave Von Raven, who also features in Martys video for the catchy song "Do You Really Wanna Dance?"
'Summer Holiday' can be described as a feelgood guitar pop album. Catchy choruses and ditto Guitar Lines make you feel like it's summer forever. Marty has developed a unique style and sound with influences from a.o. the Californian popsound. If you think of The Beach Boys you're a step in the right direction .. Sprinkle a glimmer of punk rock on top of that and you get 'Summer Holiday'!

This is a 12 track album that makes you move involuntarily, you can't help but tap your feet, beautifully arranged and with some fantastic guests, notably, Julia Reinhold who lends her beautiul voice to the track "Why."
It is hard to pick a favourite track on this album as they are all such great songs, which answers that question, How many drummers does it take to make a great album? Just one, Marty Graveyard!
Suited, booted and suave!

Marty is currently rehearsing with a band and getting ready to take this album out on a tour which promises to be something special, the sunshine could be coming to a town near you soon!

Summer Holiday will be available at all good record shops, if they don't stock it, you should be able to place an order for it.


  1. Totally dug this track. I don't buy that many new artists CDs anymore but this is one I will definitely keep my eyes open for. I see that on Amazon it is only going to be offered as an MP3 download. Is it also going to be released in CD format?

  2. Yes, it will be released as a cd, the record company is V2 and I am sure you can order it from them, but I will check with Marty where physical copies will be available and get the info up on the blog as soon as possible. I will also message you directly.

  3. Hi Yankeeboy,

    Marty has told me the album will be available at most record stores, not sure about the states, you can try ordering it and see how it goes. If you get stuck, we will sort something one way or another for you, let me know how you get on.
