Ghost Key announce new EP “The Things I Am Not,” stream new single “Judgement”

Illinois based melodic hardcore act Ghost Key have announced that they will release their new EP The Things I Am Not on June 30th through their new home No Sleep Records. Check out the tracklisting below.

“With the new record we wanted to go in a heavier direction, both lyrically and sonically,” says bassist Ryan Murphy.  “We all have a pretty wide musical palette and so we really wanted that to shine through. Above all else, we wanted to remain as honest and real as possible. The lyrics are incredibly personal and we believe the ambience of the music compliments them well. These are the best songs we’ve ever written and they couldn’t be getting released through a better label.”

They band also premiered the lead single from the album, a song titled “Judgement,” which can be streamed here.

“For the first couple years of playing in Ghost Key, I was met with a lot of criticism,” explains vocalist Austin O’Brien. “People close to me continuously put me down because I wasn’t following the more traditional path of a young adult. Fast forward a couple years and those people have seen that I’m happy and things are looking up. They assumed that they could just waltz back into my life and ask for forgiveness and that’s where the inspiration for “Judgement” came from. If you can’t stand by my side when things are tough, you can’t stand by my side at all.” 

The band is currently on tour with Church Tongues. Check out the remaining dates below, as well as their album release show information.

The Things I Am Not can be pre-ordered here. Ghost Key last released their EP Winter in January 2013.

Dying Scene Session: Rocky Votolato performs two songs from “Hospital Handshakes”

We’ve got a brand new installment of the new-and-improved Dying Scene Sessions coming at ya today, and it’s a damn good one (if we may be so bold).

As you’re no doubt aware by now, Seattle-based singer-songwriter Rocky Votolato‘s eighth solo album, Hospital Handshakes, came out earlier this week on his new label home, No Sleep Records. It’s his biggest, boldest, and dare we say best album to date. And while Hospital Handshakes might be more of a “rock album” than Rocky’s put out to date, the songs were written on acoustic guitar and take on a particularly haunting element when stripped down to their barest elements.

Dying Scene was luck not only to chat with Rocky over the phone a couple weeks ago but to sit down with him for an exclusive acoustic session as he wound down his intimate tour of secret living room shows across the US. Check out Rocky’s Dying Scene Sessions performances of “White Knuckles” and “So Unexpected” below!
