SAM ALONE & THE GRAVEDIGGERS sign with People Like You Records

Poli Correia’s (aka Sam Alone) music is a way to tell heartfelt stories about ordinary people that all of us can relate to: about growing up, everyday struggles and everyday heroes. For SAM ALONE & THE GRAVEDIGGERS he is armed with his “Working Class Rifle”, an old, rugged guitar, and accompanied by The Gravediggers, a group of likeminded people that share the same vision of playing handmade “music for the people” that is deeply rooted in folk and classic protest songs, but coming with a fresh and contemporary edge. The heavily tattooed singer and guitarist is no newbie in the international music world, together with guitarist Pedro Matos he is regularly touring the globe with the hardcore band Devil In Me. While their alter ego as Devil In Me is a lot louder the message is the same for both creative collectives: keeping a positive attitude while expressing the frustration about social injustices and ultimately striving for the world to become a better place. The road, friends and family are some of the main influences for the six piece band coming from Portugal that is another perfect example that great talent is thriving everywhere.

SAM ALONE & THE GRAVEDIGGERS have a new album, “Tougher Than Leather”, ready to be released all over Europe in early 2016. Get a first taste of it by watching the video for the title track that is surely going to make you tap your feet and snap your fingers, watch the clip here

I remember attending a local Spleen Flipper gig for the release of their latest work “The Will To Kill” and opening up that night was Lodi's quintet A Theory Of Justice. It was a while I didn't catch up with ATOJ and when they started playing I've immediately got the feel the band was heading towards changes in terms of sound, being what I was hearing something more like darker and tense than the new school hardcore meets metalcore stuff included in their very first outing titled “Athena”, and I knew them for.
A few years went by from that show and last December 2014 the guy released a new self-titled EP that only confirmed the sounds they had been shooting for were very different from Athena's.
Their new stuff is reminiscent to me of Trustkill's metalcore as well as the darker chaotic angular math-post-hardcore-metal of bands on Deathwish Inc. records.
I emailed the band a few questions to learn first hand as much as possible about this change in sound, ATOJ (the EP) and get information about The Creature Fest and Clam association, +AMICI -STORIE and more...
