We Are Always Searching
I Am Ghost
The words “dark,” “macabre” and “beautiful” only begin to describe the unique music of I Am Ghost. By seamlessly integrating the raw energy of post-hardcore with contemporary punk rock and elements of classical strings and piano, I Am Ghost have developed a unique style that crosses genres, unites scenes and makes for a powerful overall experience.
Lyrically, the band explores aspects of love, life, tragedy and triumph; the vocals range from incensed hardcore growls and screams to spine-tingling synchronous choruses that seamlessly encapsulate both beauty and sorrow.
"We are a band created for the kids, the children and young adults who feel they do not fit in anywhere, for people who believe they are alone in this world," says Steve Juliano, singer of I Am Ghost. "We hope to create some hope and understanding with our music. Our mission it to change kids lives."

If the lack of discernible dispatches from Davey Havok & Co. has forced you to smear your mascara and chip your black nail varnish, you'll fall madly in love with I Am Ghost's macabre blend of shock-rock theatrics and bloodletting punk ferocity. These six black-veiled figures reimagine The Misfits through Lisa Germano's eyes. We are Always Searching is a forty minute ride on the headless horseman of gallows punk, heedlessly galloping through goth, emo, hardcore and pop-punk in its pursuit of white-knuckle thrills and the blood of a virgin sacrifice.
They band is far more studious than their Interview with the Vampire appearance would suggest, swirling everything from Cocteau Twins-style grandeur ("Lady Madeline in Her Coffin") to moments of Dead Can Dance-like derision ("The Dead Girl Epilogue: Part One") into their screamy gallows-punk Molotov cocktails. "The Most Beautiful Nightmare Pt. 2" whips its head around on a panicky rhythm, arpeggios flying as dual vocal lines scream bloody murder in the shadowy backdrop, while the droning, despondent "Civil War and Isolation Thirst" is offset by a lash of metallic guitar and a rousing chorus. The explosive title track and the raging "Eulogies and Epitaphs" are bombastic calls-to-arms -- the soundtrack to a thousand painted-up goth kids taking their revenge on the jocks that have tormented them for longer than they can
