The team's view

Twenty years in the business, six albums with no weak points, one of the heaviest and most melodic sounds in the business, and an unstoppable stage presence. The Ghost Inside's CV is impressive. On 18 October 2024 at Le Bataclan, the Californians are going to blast you with their latest album, Searching For Solace. I promise, it's going to be something.

Captivating tracks such as "Engine 45", "Avalanche", "Aftermath", "Wash It Away" and "Pressure Point" are anthems for the marginalised. Since their formation in El Segundo, California, The Ghost Inside have inspired international audiences with their passion and determination. Huge obstacles have never dampened their energy. The Ghost Inside are stronger than ever. The lesson is not just about strength in the face of adversity. In recent years, singer Jonathan Vigil, guitarists Zach Johnson and Chris Davis, bassist Jim Riley and drummer Andrew Tkaczyk have learned an esoteric truth about tranquillity. As the axiom goes, it's the journey that counts, not the destination, a theme echoed on the band's dynamic sixth album, Searching for Solace. The Ghost Inside fuses the skill of new wave American metalcore with the urgency of punk, bridging the gap between more aggressive sounds and more thoughtful messages. Melody is another constant, explored to new heights on Searching for Solace. Fury and the Fallen Ones (2008) and Returners (2010) preceded The Ghost Inside's Epitaph album, Get What You Give (2012).

The goodwill, momentum and engaging live performances continued behind the conceptual Dear Youth (2014). In 2015, while driving outside El Paso, Texas, the band's tour bus collided with a semi-truck. Kerrang! called The Ghost Inside's return to the stage nearly four years later "rock's most miraculous comeback". Their historic Los Angeles concert, chronicled in Rise from the Ashes: Live at the Shrine, sold out so quickly that it had to be moved to the car park. "The Ghost Inside's devastating bus crash may have broken their bodies, but it didn't break their spirit," wrote Revolver magazine on the release of the band's self-titled comeback. With heavy, dynamic and melodic songs like 'Going Under', 'Death Grip', 'Wrath' and 'Earn It', Searching for Solace is an almost complete picture of the band's past, present and future. Remembering that adversity almost took the band down more than once over the years is an integral part of this journey. "There was a time when all five of us thought this band was finished," says Vigil. "Having a new life means we're never going to waste it."
