While the possibility of the band playing more shows is up in the air as of this time, The Ghost Inside’s long-awaited comeback show almost 4 years after a tragic van accident was a resounding success. Sold-out long before the show actually happened, it’s been known for a while that the beloved band were plotting new music – and it appears we have a little more of a timeline for that new music, at least with the band recently teasing it on social media.
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.
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.
