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.”

The Ghost Inside Continue To Work On New Material

During a recent interview with Kerrang!, The Ghost Inside confirmed that new music is still in the works. The article also mentioned that the band may even release a full album in 2020.

Bassist Jim Riley talked a bit about the new material:

“This band has always been about something. The message has always been positive; it’s a journey from hope to despair. ‘Life’s swinging hard, but I’m swinging harder’ [from ‘Mercy‘], ‘Only the strong will survive’ [from ‘The Great Unknown‘]… When those lines were written, we genuinely believed those words, but we were in a different place in the world. We didn’t know how powerful they really could be. But now we’re living them.

We have one [new] song that’s pretty explicitly about that feeling of living up to who you have said you are. If we want to be the house on the hill for those fans that we’ve sold ourselves as for years as The Ghost Inside – as this band that preach positivity and a message that you can get up and fight on from your lowest moment – are we going to live up to it? Or were we just full of shit?

Life can swing hard, but we will swing harder. And so can anyone.”

As previously reported, the band played their first live show since their horrific 2015 bus crash earlier this month.

Andrew Tkaczyk On The Ghost Inside’s Upcoming Concert: “Do I Have Anxiety About Playing A Show Again? You Bet Your Fucking Ass I Do”

As previously reported, The Ghost Inside will be returning to the stage for the first time since their horrific November 2015 bus crash on July 13 at The Shrine in Los Angeles, CA. Now, drummer Andrew Tkaczyk, who lost his leg and sustained a number of other injuries in the accident, has since opened up about the upcoming show via Instagram:

View this post on Instagram

It’s been 1,197 days since November 19th 2015. The day that changed our lives forever. A LOT has happened between then and now. There hasn’t been a single one of those days where I haven’t sat down, stared at the ceiling, and dreamt about the first time @theghostinside plays a show again. I’ve had countless dreams about it. Some bad. Some good. But now it’s reality. Was there a point in time where I thought it was impossible? Several. Was I uncertain about the future of the band? Certainly. I didn’t want to let one major event define me as a human. When I woke up in the hospital without my right leg, I chose not to throw myself a pity party. I chose to learn how to own it. My “this won’t beat me” attitude, is what got me to this point. There’s no denying it. Life hit us pretty hard. But it’s not about how hard you get hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. Yeah, yeah I know. Rocky quote. But I’ve never believed that more in my life than I do now, and on July 13th 2019, we get to demonstrate that sentiment to the world. Do I have anxiety about playing a show again? You bet your fucking ass I do. I’m terrified. It’s been impossible to not focus on who I was, who I am now, and what I will become. At the same time, I’m sure as soon as we start playing, all that anxiety will drain out of my body and mind, and I’ll feel right at home. Either way, we feel like we don’t only owe it to ourselves to do this show, but we owe it to all of our family, friends, and fans for the overwhelming amount of love and support you’ve given us these last 3+ years. None of us know how this is going to go. Hundreds, maybe even thousands of you have messaged me over the last few years asking “When will you tour again?” To which I didn’t even reply. That’s because I don’t know. We don’t know. But we’re about to find out. It would mean the world if you could come out and share this once in a lifetime experience with us. Tickets go on sale this Friday @ 10 am PST.

The Ghost Inside’s Upcoming Los Angeles Show Will Be Their Only Live Performance This Year

As previously reported, The Ghost Inside will be returning to the stage for the first time since their horrific November 2015 bus crash on July 13 at The Shrine in Los Angeles, CA. However, the band have since confirmed that it will be their only show this year. They said the following:

“With tickets for our show in July on sale in less than 48 hours, we’ve been overwhelmed by the outpouring of excitement and support. There is one question many of you have been asking: “Is this your last show?” The answer is we don’t know, but we sure hope it isn’t. We won’t make any decisions about that until we get off the stage and have a chance to let it sink in. This is absolutely 100% the only show we will play in 2019. No secret warm up show the day before and no surprise tour announcement the day after. This is going to be a once in a lifetime night that we have fought for every day of our recovery. We will be joined by all of our families, friends, and those that supported us behind the scenes, and we hope that many of you will join us as well. Tickets will be on sale from 10 AM Pacific Time on Friday.”
