The Ghost Inside Finish New Album, Announce Worcester, MA Show

The Ghost Inside have officially finished their new album. The record will be the band’s first since their horrific November 2015 bus crash. In other news, the band have also announced that they will be performing at The Palladium in Worcester, MA on July 11.

Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk said the following about the group’s new album on Stray From The Path drummer Craig Reynolds‘ “The Downbeat Podcast” [transcribed by Kerrang!]:

“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.”

He also added:

“I don’t think we’ve quite settled on a name [for the album] 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.”

Here’s The Ghost Inside’s current dates:

06/26 Gräfenhainichen, GER – Full Force Festival
07/04 London, UK – O2 Academy Brixton
07/11 Worcester, MA – The Palladium (outdoors)

The Ghost Inside Plan To Release New Music Before Their 2020 Europe/UK Shows

During a recent interview with Kerrang!, The Ghost Inside’s Jim Riley was asked if fans can expect to hear new music from the band before their two European/UK shows next year. He responded by simply saying “yes.”

Riley also had the following to say about the band’s new album process:

“The biggest difference is the emphasis on collaboration. This is the first record without [former lead guitarist and co-founder] Aaron Brooks, and first with Chris Davis. Aaron was the main guy to put the ideas together before, and we’re doing it much more as a group on this one. There’s also a freedom now to explore the TGI sound in any way we want. We are so far removed – almost six years – from the ‘Dear Youth‘ process, and the band has grown so much as individuals and as a collective that we bring a lot of new things to the table.”

He also added the following about working with Fit For An Autopsy’s Will Putney and A Day To Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon:

“Will was our first choice producer for this project, and we always wanted to have Jeremy involved as well. We are very lucky that we don’t have a deadline and have been able to work around their schedules. Epitaph have been incredibly supportive on this as well, understanding that making the record was going to be a little non-traditional, but if the results are as good as we are hoping it will all have been worth it.”

Tour Dates:

01/11 Tarwin Lower, AUS – UNIFY Gathering
06/26 Gräfenhainichen, GER – Full Force Festival
07/04 London, UK – O2 Academy Brixton

The Ghost Inside Premiere “Mercy” Live Video

The Ghost Inside have premiered a new live video for “Mercy.” The clip was filmed during the band’s July 13 show at The Shrine in Los Angeles, CA. That concert was the group’s first since their horrific bush crash, which happened four years ago today (November 19).

The Ghost Inside commented:

“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 and unbreakable. See you in 2020.”

The Ghost Inside To Perform At 2020 Full Force Festival

The Ghost Inside have announced that they will be performing at the 2020 Full Force Festival. That event will take place in Gräfenhainichen, Germany on June 26-28.

The group commented:

“The first stop of 2020 that we can share with you will be Full Force Festival in Germany! This will be our only performance in mainland Europe for the year.

When we talked about what places were most important for us to try to get back to at least one more time, Germany was at the top of the list. Our fans there have welcomed us with open arms time after time and always made us feel at home, and Full Force especially marked some major milestones for TGI.

When they approached us to play their festival, they totally understood that The Ghost Inside isn’t just showing up to play songs but to share an incredible experience that is much bigger than just the music.

So we are beyond excited to team up with Full Force and we’ll see you next summer!”

As previously reported, The Ghost Inside are also planning several more shows for 2020 and have been working on new music. This news comes after the band returned to the stage in July for the first time since their November 2015 bus crash.

The Ghost Inside Offer Update On Their Future

The Ghost Inside have offered a new update on their future plans. The band previously played their first show since their November 2015 bus crash at The Shrine in Los Angeles, CA last month and are now discussing the possibility of doing more shows, while continuing to work on new material.

The group said the following:

“Welp, here it is. A month and change has gone by since our show in LA. We’ve spent most of that time together working on music and discussing the next chapter of TGI.

By no means are we ready physically or mentally to do any touring, but July 13 proved to us that we are much more than capable of overcoming all of the challenges that have been placed in our way, and we are ready to play a few more shows.

As the plan for when and where those will be comes together, we will continue to put all our cards on the table. We like to think we are on every part of this journey together with you. Stay tuned as the first couple of announcements will come up quick! TGI now, TGI forever.”
