2002 – present (22 years)
San Diego, San Diego County, California, United States
- Tommy Garcia
Their sound stems from early punk rock n roll driven by modern hardcore influences. Their live show is pure energy and mayhem. Please Mr. Gravedigger is not just a band, they are a rock and roll movement. Guitarist Richie Lauridsen and vocalist Tommy Garcia began piecing the band together in 2002, when Tommy, who along with Brandon Hays (bass) and Ruben Gutierrez (ex-guitar) were all sharing time in As I Lay Dying. They wrote a few songs and self-released their first demo before eventually deciding to make Please Mr. Gravedigger their full time musical endeavor. They then set out to recruit the remaining roles to fill out the lineup and establish the band's direction. Their direction was simple and effective; play pissed-off punk rock and have fun doing it.
