After a 2015 touring accident that severely injured both band and crew, many thought The Ghost Inside might never play a show again. After all, the accident resulted in the loss of limbs, equipment, broken bones, and just about every other malady that could have befallen the hardcore/metalcore band, but the band refused to quit. The result? A comeback show for the ages that basically everyone is talking about this weekend – and certainly will be for a long time.
While we don’t truly know if the band will ever perform live again, one thing is for sure – fans of the passion that hardcore can bring to the table didn’t miss out on the band’s first show in 4 years last night. For the old-school TGI fans, the band even played “Shiner”!The show was packed full of people that have shown TGI support over the last ten years, and we have plenty of video footage for you to table through below, as well. Watch out.
The band has been teasing us for a while, and it looks like the return of The Ghost Inside is imminent. Really, it’s only a matter of time before something official surfaces from the band, but it seems we have that now.
After a catastrophic bus crash in late 2015, the future of The Ghost Inside was in immediate doubt. That tragedy couldn’t break their spirit, however. The band has been in recovery mode for the last few years, understandably – and now it appears they’re in the studio doing something substantial. Namely, recording new music, at least that’s what it looks like. Earlier today, the band posted a photo of multiple TGI members in the studio, and to no one’s surprise, Twitter erupted when the band responded to a fan’s question about when new music would possibly arrive. Predictably, this spawned plenty of “Please remain calm” GIFs from The Office.
Any upcoming material would be the band’s first since 2014’s Dear Youth, so we can’t wait to see what the band is up to. Surely, their inspirational brand of hardcore/metalcore/whatever you want to call it means they’ll have plenty of emotional subject matter to draw upon, and we’re here for it.
Whether or not they make music and/or tour again, you have to admire The Ghost Inside’s dedication to soldier on after a van accident that shattered their lives. Despite the physical and mental toll that event took on their bodies, one thing is for sure – their spirits weren’t broken by it. A real testament to the lyrics they’ve written over the years, really.
Even more inspiring is seeing drummer Andrew Tkaczyk play on a custom kit made for him, despite losing his leg in the aforementioned accident. Andrew had this to say in the video (which you can watch below).
