The Ghost Inside announce new album, share new single


Since forming in El Segundo, California in 2004, The Ghost Inside have thrilled international audiences with their songs of resilience, perseverance and vulnerability born from real life experiences. After five studio albums, today they announce their new album "Searching For Solace", which will be released digitally on April 19th and physically on June 7th via Epitaph Records.

The Ghost Inside also release lead single "Wash It Away", in which vocalist Jonathan Vigil reflects on the realization that anything, even the band, can quickly disappear.

"It's really hard to tear everything down, start over and rebuild," the band explains. "Whether that's a relationship, an education, a career or a business. After investing so much time into something, it can be scary to lose it and start over."

The performance video features the band in a torrential rain, complete with epic underwater shredding.

Four years after their self-titled album was named one of the best rock and metal albums of 2020 by Loudwire, Searching For Solace arrives at an optimal time in The Ghost Inside's life. Nine years after the horrific bus accident that changed the trajectory of their lives forever, singer Jonathan Vigil, guitarists Zach Johnson and Chris Davis, bassist Jim Riley and drummer Andrew Tkaczyk have learned an esoteric truth about rest. As the saying goes, "The journey is the destination." - a theme that runs through the band's dynamic sixth album, "Searching for Solace".

“People always ask me how I stay positive,” Vigil muses. "I realize now that there is never really a time when you reach the point of happiness. It is a constant journey. I know that life is made up of hills and valleys. You have to be ready to try new things "To stand up for yourself and adapt. Because the goal posts are moving further and further away. The search for comfort never ends."

The Ghost Inside have been a fixture in the metalcore scene since 2008, combining the prowess of metalcore with the urgency of punk. "Searching For Solace" was produced by Dan Braunstein (Spiritbox, Dayseeker), who is responsible for the majority of the album, while other tracks come from Cody Quistad (Wage War), Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Bloodywood). Bridging more aggressive sounds and thoughtful messages, the album features the most fundamental elements of The Ghost Inside: honesty, vulnerability, meaning and melody. Not afraid to tackle darker themes and expanded soundscapes, "Searching for Solace" is an integral part of The Ghost Inside's catalogue.

"There are more vocals and song structures than on the previous album, but there are also some of the heaviest songs we've ever done," says Jim Riley (bass). "We really know who we are and we're also comfortable going into the future. This is a new chapter, but it's not separate from what the band sounded like before. It's more of an expansion. We're excited about it."
