The Ghost Inside Announce New Album "Searching For Solace" & Drop Video for "Wash It Away"

 


Since their 2004 formation in El Segundo, California, The Ghost Inside have inspired international audiences with their songs of resilience, perseverance and vulnerability born from genuine life experiences. After five studio albums, today they announce their new record “Searching For Solace” out digitally on April 19th and physically on June 7th via Epitaph Records.




The Ghost Inside also share the lead single “Wash It Away”, which finds vocalist Jonathan Vigil ruminating on the realization that anything, even the band, can quickly disappear.




“It’s really hard to break everything down, start over and rebuild,” they explain. “Whether that is a relationship, schooling, a career or a business venture. After dedicating so much time to something, it can be scary to lose it and start over.”




The performance video depicts the band flooded by a torrential downpour, complete with epic underwater shredding. Check it out below:



Four years since their self-titled album was named one of Loudwire’s Best Rock and Metal Albums of 2020, “Searching For Solace” arrives at an optimal time in the lives of The Ghost Inside. Nine years removed from the horrific bus crash that forever changed their trajectory, vocalist Jonathan Vigil, guitarists Zach Johnson and Chris Davis, bassist Jim Riley, and drummer Andrew Tkaczyk have learned an esoteric truth about tranquility. As the axiom says, “it’s the journey, not the destination” - a theme explored throughout the band’s dynamic sixth album, “Searching for Solace”.




“People always ask me how I remain positive,” Vigil muses. “I’m realizing now that there’s never really a time where you reach that point of ‘happiness.’ It’s a constant journey. I know that life is hills and valleys. You must be willing to embrace new things, stand up for yourself, and adapt. Because the goalposts just move further away. The search for solace never ends.”




A constant force in the metalcore scene since 2008, The Ghost Inside merges metalcore’s proficiency with punk’s urgency. “Searching For Solace” features production from Dan Braunstein (Spiritbox, Dayseeker) who took the reins on most of the record, with other tracks handled by Cody Quistad (Wage War), Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Bloodywood). Building a bridge between more aggressive sounds and thoughtful messaging, the album boasts the most fundamental elements of The Ghost Inside: honesty, vulnerability, the message, and the melody. Unafraid to embrace darker themes and expanded sonic landscapes, “Searching for Solace” is a quintessential entry to The Ghost Inside’s catalogue.




“There’s more singing and song structure than on the previous album, but there are also some of the heaviest songs we’ve done,” notes Riley (bass). “We really know who we are, and we also feel comfortable stepping into the future. This is a new chapter, but it’s not disconnected from what the band sounded like before. It’s more of an extension of it. We’re excited by it.”

The metalcore giants will be hitting the road for a headlining tour across North America with special guests Paleface Swiss, Bleed From Within, and Great American Ghost, kicking off in Las Vegas on April 19th and ending in Ohio on May 16.

Vocalist Caesar says of ‘Joke’: “The song reflects the illusory nature of the self, both in cyberspace and the physical world. No one is entirely what they may think or claim to be, even the most insightful among us. Moreover, today's technological trends and social platforms seem to have amplified our tendency toward self-delusion." He continues: "Maintaining a healthy sense of humility and open-mindedness can be challenging under more traditio
