Illawarra-based metal act Graves have announced that they will be calling it a day later this year. 

The band will head out on the road for their final shows in November, a co-headlining Australian tour with Melbourne’s Void Of Vision.

The tour will include a Licensed All Ages show at RAD Bar, Wollongong on Monday, November 20. 

Graves’ debut album Monster was released last October via Melbourne-based label Greyscale Records, and debuted at Number 29 on the ARIA Charts. 

“We are sorry but it’s time for us to call it a day; we’ve spent countless hours of hours and days of having fun doing this,” the band said in a statement.

“Don’t miss these shows.

“It’s been a fun six years and we want to see you all there one last time.”

Initially all five band members hailed from the Illawarra, although later line-ups also featured personnel from Nowra and Newcastle. 

Graves have previously opened for Byron Bay heavyweights Parkway Drive in Wollongong, and toured Australia with America’s Suicide Silence and Sydney’s Thy Art Is Murder.
