The Ghost Inside Bio

Hardcore group The Ghost Inside have released their fourth album Dear Youth on Epitaph Records. The album was co-produced by Jeremy McKinnon of A Day To Remember and Andrew Wade.

Front man Jonathan Vigil explains the album concept in a letter written to his younger self:

Dear Youth,

I'm writing to you now because it seems I’ve lost my way. I can't pinpoint exactly when it started, but I know that it’s not like it was before. I’ve realized the more time that passes, the more we lose touch. It’s starting to feel like all I ever do now is lose touch with things. But not you, I never wanted to lose you.

I wish I had something to blame it all on, but I don’t. One day I was there and the next I was here. As if I was dreaming and suddenly woken up. These days I'm always wondering if what I've done is enough. It’s getting harder and harder for me to shake this feeling of stagnance.

So old friend I’m writing to ask you what it feels like to have the whole world in your hand? Where we could set out and do anything that we imagined. Endless possibilities way before complacence set in. To be honest with you, I’ve forgotten what that all feels like. There was a wonder about us that has long since faded. That sense of excitement, I miss it.

Dear youth, will you show me again? I need to be reminded of those times, back before this began...

- xx

The Ghost Inside is a Los Angeles-based hardcore band. They began as a group of friends in El Segundo, CA united by their shared passion for bands in the hardcore scene. The group stands for authenticity, dedication, perseverance and the most literal adherence to the core values behind their craft. Sonically, the group places equal emphasis on deeply personal vocals, urgent riffing and pile-driving breakdowns within the framework of their heavily melodic modern hardcore. Dear Youth is the group's fourth studio album and was co-produced by A Day To Remember's Jeremy McKinnon – a longtime friend of the band and supporter. Previous releases from The Ghost Inside are their first full-length Fury and the Fallen Ones (2008), Returners (2010), and Get What You Give (2012).

The Ghost Inside is: Jonathan Vigil (vocals), Aaron Brooks (guitar), Zach Johnson (guitar), Jim Riley (bass)
Andrew Tkaczyk (drums)
