Second album "Team Ghost" Dec 2, 2016 http://smarturl.it/TeamGhost-LP
Since their first album « Rituals » in 2013, Team Ghost have worked towards a refined sound between harmony and dissonance, in the search of a world that would define them. This second album evolves as a fiction, taking place at any time, tomorrow or today. Relentlessly haunted by human presence and its raging guitars and drums, it is intended as a dark and violent act where digital disruptions interfere with synthetic murmur. It is the metaphor for a crumbling world, where all sense of direction is lost, except for the one we faithfully create for ourselves. What matters here is not the message waiting to be delivered, but the delimitation of our own territory, at the fringe of any known world. A shelter for those who still believe in something, right here, right now!
Team Ghost are:
- Nicolas Fromageau (vocals, guitars, synths), M83 founder with Anthony Gonzalez up to their second album
- Benoît de Villeneuve (vocals, guitars, synths), who released several albums under the alias « Villeneuve » and produced many other artists.
- Christophe Guérin (vocals, guitars, synths)
- Pierre Blanc (bass)
- Félix Delacroix (drums)
Their first EP « You never did anything wrong to me » was highly praised by Pitchfork and NME even described their music as « Cold-Gaze », a whole new genre created for the release.
After touring with Crystal Castle, Team Ghost invades the UK where it scours many festivals. To seal this bond, a second EP « Celebrate What You Can’t See » is released under the English label Sonic Cathedral.
In 2013, first album « Rituals » and first single Dead Film Star come after a remarkable appearance on the trend setting stage of French festival Transmusicales de Rennes, spawning a series of concerts in Brazil, Germany, England, New York that ended in Rock en Seine festival in Paris.
More recently, Team Ghost gave 8 different shows in China while preparing their upcoming tour in Europe.
As the machine grows, your palpating heart and ears will pulse to the sound of synths and guitars dripping with sweat.... The future is coming.
