Dead Ghosts Announce New Album for 10/16

Dead Ghosts' new album 'Love And Death And All The Rest'

The Vancouver-based band, Dead Ghosts, assembled in the fall of 2008 when high school friends Bryan Nicoland, Drew Wilkinson wanted to start a project together. The two then recruited Drew’s brother, Mike Wilkinson, to play drums and mutual friend, Maurizio Chiumento, on bass.

It wasn’t long after that the band had released a handful of EPs, and in 2010, Dead Ghosts released their self-titled debut on Florida-based record label Florida’s Dying, later re-issued by Burger Records on tape and vinyl, after selling out multiple pressings. The debut’s release propelled the band into a series of shows in the states, and since then, Dead Ghosts have toured North America and Europe several times, playing hundreds of shows with bands like Roky Erikson, Thee Oh Sees, Black Lips and Ty Segall. The band’s second album, Can’t Get No (Burger Records), followed in 2013.

Dead Ghosts’ new release, Love and Death and All The Rest, is their third studio album. This time around the band went with a DIY approach, deciding to record the album themselves, aptly choosing the comforts of a dilapidated barn on the outskirts of Vancouver instead of a traditional studio. Although the album is completely self-produced, Dead Ghosts opted for a fuller, less abrasive sound than their previous albums.

Love And Death And All The Rest will see release Oct. 16th on Burger Records. The band has also released a music video for the first single from the new album, “Drink It Dry.” Dead Ghosts kicks off a European tour today; all dates are listed below.
