A constant force in the metalcore scene since 2008, The Ghost Inside recently announced their sixth album Searching For Solace which paints a complete picture of the band’s past, present and future for a sonic representation of the darkest and brightest points of their journey. Today they share their crushing new single “Split” that evokes ominous feelings of paranoia brought on by deteriorating mental health.

Conveying intense emotional distress through a harsh vocal fry and aggressive instrumentation, the band explains, “ “Split” is about the times your world is falling apart and you get trapped in your own head with an imagination making you question reality, sending you spinning towards your breaking point.” Watch the lyric video below:

The Ghost Inside will be in Australia this September supporting the legendary Parkway Drive on their 20 Year Anniversary Tour. Full tour details below.

Four years since their self-titled album was named one of Loudwire’s Best Rock and Metal Albums of 2020, Searching For Solacarrives at an optimal time in the lives of The Ghost Inside. Nine years removed from the horrific bus crash that forever changed their trajectory, vocalist Jonathan Vigil, guitarists Zach Johnson and Chris Davis, bassist Jim Riley, and drummer Andrew Tkaczyk have learned an esoteric truth about tranquility. As the axiom says, “it’s the journey, not the destination” – a theme explored throughout the band’s dynamic sixth album, Searching for Solace.

People always ask me how I remain positive,” Vigil muses. “I’m realising now that there’s never really a time where you reach that point of ‘happiness.’ It’s a constant journey. I know that life is hills and valleys. You must be willing to embrace new things, stand up for yourself, and adapt. Because the goalposts just move further away. The search for solace never ends.

Merging metalcore’s proficiency with punk’s urgency, Searching For Solace features production from Dan Braunstein (Spiritbox, Dayseeker) who took the reins on most of the record, with other tracks handled by Cody Quistad (Wage War), Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland (August Burns Red, Bloodywood). Building a bridge between more aggressive sounds and thoughtful messaging, the album boasts the most fundamental elements of The Ghost Inside: honesty, vulnerability, the message, and the melody. Unafraid to embrace darker themes and expanded sonic landscapes, Searching for Solace is a quintessential entry to The Ghost Inside’s catalogue.

There’s more singing and song structure than on the previous album, but there are also some of the heaviest songs we’ve done,” notes Riley (bass). “We really know who we are, and we also feel comfortable stepping into the future. This is a new chapter, but it’s not disconnected from what the band sounded like before. It’s more of an extension of it. We’re excited by it.”
