I AM GHOST TO RELEASE NEW ALBUM

Post-hardcore Group To Release Sophomore Album, Those We Leave Behind, On October 7th

Los Angeles based dark-rock group, I Am Ghost, return with their much anticipated sophomore album, Those We Leave Behind, on October 7th. Recorded with producer Paul Leavitt (Senses Fail, The Bled, Circa Survive) in Baltimore, MD, Those We Leave Behind contains fourteen turbulent tracks of brooding passion-fueled rock infused with monstrously accessible hooks.

After a lineup change in late 2007, Steve Juliano (vocals) along with Timoteo Rosales III (guitars), Ron Ficarro (bass) and Justin McCarthy (drums) have re-focused the band’s direction, returning to the powerful raw rock that inspired them to make music in the first place. The resulting album, Those We Leave Behind, seamlessly melds elements of metal, melodic-hardcore and screamo with sweeping sing-along choruses to startling effect.

Blending fantasy and reality in his twisted tales of death and tragedy, Juliano seems to revel in showing the world’s beauty in decay on songs like the massive anthem “Don’t Wake Up,” the ode to the fallen “Those We Leave Behind” and the heart wrenching tale of “The Saddest Story Never Told.” Those We Leave Behind is a sonic stake in the heart of safe, conformist music, defiantly confirming I Am Ghost’s place among the scenes most elite bands. With a reenergized passion and energy, I Am Ghost, are set to unveil their new music to their legion of fans on the band’s US and European tours this summer/fall.
