The Ghost Inside Finish New Album, Announce East Coast U.S. Show
A double-shot of news today for everyone rooting for The Ghost Inside on their continued recovery from the 2015 bus crash that left many of them with life-changing injuries: the band has completed recording a new album, and they’ve announced another one-off show to join the small handful of others set for this year.
Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk revealed news of the album’s completion in a chat with Stray From The Path’s Craig Reynolds on The Downbeat podcast, saying:
“Back in January of last year I turned one of my bedrooms into a little studio, and the guys came out and we just started writing it. So when we got hold of Will [Putney, producer] to tell him we were interested in him producing the record, we also had Jeremy [McKinnon] from A Day To Remember on board, which we’ve had on the last two records.
“How it worked was, we first initially met up in Orlando at Jeremy’s studio and Andrew Wade’s studio to do these pre-pro demos. And that was in May of last year. So he came there, and we all flew to Florida, and we spent two or three weeks in Orlando. And then we took a little break because we had our comeback show to do in July, so we took a little break to prepare for that, and then went back to good old Belleville, New Jersey to finish and track the record.
“I don’t think we’ve quite settled on a name yet – but the record is done, and literally as of last night we are listening to the mix, and all this stuff. So it’s super-exciting.”
If mixes are now complete, it’s not unreasonable to think it could see the light of day as soon as this summer, which would put it just ahead of the six-year anniversary of Dear Youth, which came out in November of 2014.
Meanwhile, The Ghost Inside have added an East Coast U.S. show to their 2020 itinerary, which just saw the band perform in Australia and has a gig scheduled in London for July (tickets here). The band announced the show, which is set to take place on July 11 at a special outdoors stage at The Palladium in Worcester, MA (near Boston), on Twitter just moments ago, saying:
“Update: America, we’re coming East. We’re trying our best to top the Shrine, so this time we’ll bringing a full lineup of bands…..and new music. Tickets on sale Friday at 10 AM EST. See you in July.”
Although the band still isn’t back to full-time touring (if they ever will be), 2020 is finally shaping up to be the comeback year that The Ghost Inside’s fans have been waiting for ever since their crash. Stay tuned for more.
