NEW YORK, NEW YORK, UNITED STATES, June 15, 2023/ — Southern Colorado-based band GRAVEL is making waves in the rock music scene with their hard-hitting sound and electrifying performances. Their debut album, “Let’s Do This,” produced by Saving Abel bassist Scott Wilson at Sunshine Studios, has garnered significant attention, and the band is on a mission to captivate listeners across the globe.

One of GRAVEL’s recent achievements is their hit single “All I Want” climbing to #26 on the SMR Top 50 Mainstream/Active Rock Chart. In just five weeks, they surpassed acts like SAVING ABEL, SKILLET, SEVENDUST, and The SMASHING PUMPKINS, while sharing the chart with Avenged Sevenfold, Foo Fighters, and Metallica holding the top 3 spots. This accomplishment solidifies GRAVEL’s rising prominence in the rock music scene.

The band’s relentless pursuit of excellence is demonstrated through their ongoing 9-month tour with Texas Hippie Coalition. Kicking off in Florida on March 7, 2023, GRAVEL will traverse the United States, delivering their high-energy performances to audiences across the country. Highlights of their tour include Daytona Bike Week, Thunder in the Valley Rally, and the Texas Hippie Coalition Family Reunion at the Diamond Ballroom in Oklahoma City, OK.

GRAVEL’s partnership with Stryker Records has been a game-changer for the band. The groundbreaking deal resulted in the release of their debut album, “Let’s Do This,” which showcases their unique blend of rock ‘n roll. Distributed through Ingrooves, a company owned by Universal Music Group, GRAVEL’s music can now be enjoyed on platforms such as iTunes, Spotify, and Amazon Music.

Their performances are not just about the music but also about creating a visual spectacle that engages and excites their audience. With memorable riffs, shredding leads, and attention-grabbing hooks, GRAVEL delivers a hard-hitting, aggressive rock ‘n roll experience that leaves a lasting impression.

The band’s impact extends beyond their recordings and performances.
