HOLY GRAIL teams with Duncan Yo-Yo’s, tutorial video posted


DUNCAN TOYS has teamed with heavy metallers’ HOLY GRAIL to create a limited edition yo-yo featuring the artwork from the band’s new album “Ride The Void,” due out Jan. 22. In conjunction, Duncan has revealed a tutorial video featuring HOLY GRAIL guitarist (and yo-yo enthusiast) Alex Lee exclusively on their site HERE. The yo-yos will be available at the band’s merch table on the upcoming Metal Alliance tour, as well as through upcoming social media promotions.

The artwork for “Ride The Void” was created by the world-renowned concept artist Dylan Cole, best known for his award-winning work on the blockbuster Avatar, as well as major movies including the Lord of the Rings trilogy, Daredevil and Transformers: Dark of the Moon. You can pre-order your copy of “Ride The Void” — about which Decibel claims, “You’d have to go back 20 years to find a metal record that achieves this level of instant infectiousness” — at http://www.RideTheVoid.com today.

In other HOLY GRAIL news, the band is confirmed to appear on the 70000 Tons Of Metal cruise alongside In Flames, Kreator, Dragonforce and many more. The cruise departs from Miami on Jan. 28 and ventures to the Turks and Caicos Islands before returning on Feb. 1st. For more information and tickets, visit http://www.70000tons.com. Shortly thereafter, the band will head out on the Metal Alliance tour along with Anthrax, Exodus, High On Fire and Municipal Waste, the penultimate performance of which will take place at the New England Metal and Hardcore Festival.
