Vuelven con nuevo disco bajo el brazo y con el mundo a sus pies los maravillosos Dead Ghosts. Comparados a menudo con los Black Lips o The King Khan & BBQ Show, Dead Ghosts son la gran promesa del garage. Sus canciones tienen el espíritu ‘60s fuzz-pop de los Nuggets, pero con la vista puesta en el garage-pop americano de hoy. Dead Ghosts cuentan con uno de los directos más salvajes y divertidos y son uno de los estandartes de Burger Records.
Playing a soulful but stripped-down fusion of garage rock, first generation rockabilly, punk, and lo-fi noise, Dead Ghosts are a quartet hailing from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada. Dead Ghosts were formed in 2007 by longtime friends guitarist Drew Wilkinson and singer and guitarist Bryan Nicol, who first started playing together when they were on the same t-ball team as kids. Years later, they decided to get somewhat serious about playing rock & roll, recruiting Drew’s brother Mike Wilkinson to play drums and finding bassist Maurizio «Moe» Chiumento through an online want ad. After establishing themselves as a live act at home, Dead Ghosts released their first single, «What to Do» b/w «God Only Knows,» through Milk n’ Herpes Records in 2008, becoming a growing attraction in Toronto and launching a few regional tours as they released several more singles through various independent labels. The year 2010 saw the release of the first full-length album from Dead Ghosts, a self-titled long-player on Florida’s Dying Records; another album of concert recordings called Live Tapes, from Psychic Lunch Records, appeared the same year. After more roadwork, the band cut its second album, 2013’s Can’t Get No, which was released in the United States by the noted indie label Burger Records. While Dead Ghosts intimated that Can’t Get No would be their final album, the group found a second wind, and returned in 2015 with Love and Death and All the Rest.
“We got lucky,” Nicol, the group’s frontman, recalls. “When we started playing, we were just messing with recording, and generally goofing around. We had no vision at all. We just wanted to play house parties or something—that was the limit of our aspirations.”
Defying their own expectations, by 2015 the group had released two more albums—Can’t Get No and Love and Death and All the Rest—both of which released on LA record label, Burger Records and embarked on several lengthy tours across Europe and US. Playing a distinctive brand of swaggering, blues-infused lo-fi rock, the five-piece quickly won over transatlantic fans and scored fresh fodder for their lyrics with their punk-rock antics.
