In recent weeks, HOLY GRAIL have continued to put the finishing touches on their follow-up to 2010’s critically acclaimed “Crisis In Utopia” with producer Matt Hyde (Slayer, Children of Bodom). A fall release is expected.

Earlier this year, the band toured Australia for the first time, where they played the Soundwave festivals and several shows with Black Label Society and Hellyeah, and also performed several times at South By Southwest (SXSW). To date, the group has released one full-length -- "Crisis In Utopia," which Revolver named one of the 20 best albums of 2010 -- and two EPs (the now-out-of-print "Improper Burial" and last year's "Seasons Bleedings").
