Ever wondered what a post-rock / black metal band would sound like? Well, wonder no longer! After making their UK live debut main stage at Bloodstock Festival last summer, depressive black metal merchants Ghost Bath, have confirmed they will return to the UK and also visit Ireland this May with Swedish metallers Katatonia. Frontman Nameless commented: "We had a blast in the UK last year and have been itching to return since. It will be great to play for you all and show off some brand new material."
Ghost Bath began in October of 2013 with the release of their self-titled EP on Solitude Productions (China). This was followed by their debut LP, Funeral, which was released on Pest Productions (China) in June of 2014. For much of their early career, they gave the impression that they were Chinese, which would have been deadly, but it turns out they’re from North Dakota. Whatever their origins, they make very interesting music.
Moonlover, their latest LP was released originally on Northern Silence Productions (Germany) and then re-released with a bonus track through Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The album was produced by Josh Schroeder and Nameless. Ghost Bath have just finished the recording of their upcoming new album with producer Josh Schroeder again at the helm. A late spring 2017 release is tentatively expected via Nuclear Blast.
