NIGHTLIFE: The two Australians met in London in 2011 and two days later, they played together at the London 100 Club. With a mix of different sounds, The Graveltones have developed their own style. Jimmy O (vocals / guitar) and Mikey Sorbello (drums) have spent their first years as a band playing across the clubs of the United Kingdom and have brought together an extraordinary number of shows with their “No Rehearsal” philosophy. They were known to never play twice in the same location. Their longtime first album “Do not Wait Down” was released in 2013, and the second “Love Lies Dying” was released in 2015. The duo has made a name for itself all over the world.
