The Ghost Inside Have Released a New Video on the Fifth Anniversary of Their Bus Crash
Things are finally looking up for The Ghost Inside, who five years ago yesterday, November 19, were involved in a bus crash that left several band members with life-changing injuries and killed two members of their crew. After playing their first show since the accident in Los Angeles this past July and revealing that they’re working on new music with Fit for an Autopsy’s Will Putney and A Day to Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon, the band stated that they were planning a handful of shows for 2020, including at Germany’s Full Force festival, Australia’s UNIFY Gathering festival and the O2 Academy Brixton in London (tickets are available right here).
The band released a live video from their show in Los Angeles yesterday to commemorate the five-year anniversary of the accident, sharing the following:
“In TGI world, we have come to call November 19 our re-birthday. Today we celebrate by sharing a live music video of Mercy from our show this summer in Los Angeles. We want to honor the drivers Greg and Stephen that lost their lives, and say thank you to all of our loved ones for their unconditional support. To every single person that supports this band in any way, there are really no words to describe how you make us feel. Every kind word, donation, tattoo, comment, or even just a listen to a song, has carried us from the lowest moment of our lives through to today. We owe you a debt that can never be repaid, but we will try our best to make you proud.
“Together, all of us, we are limitless & unbreakable. See you in 2020.”
Speaking honestly as someone who was never that into The Ghost Inside’s music, I got chills watching this video. The connection between the band and the audience, the excitement, the triumph, the energy, the positive vibes… you can feel it. Check it out below.
