Fueled By Ramen group Ghost Town has announced the release of their eagerly awaited new album. “THE AFTER PARTY” – the Los Angeles based electro rockers’ second full-length release – arrives on June 10th (see attached track listing).
Named by Alternative Press as one of 2014’s “100 Bands You Need To Know,” Ghost Town’s “THE AFTER PARTY” is available now for pre-order at www.officialghosttown.com and on iTunes, with all pre-orders receiving an instant download of the album’s electrifying first single, “You’re So Creepy.” In addition, preorder bundles will receive the first installation of Ghost Town’s Haunted Youth comic book, featuring characters from the Ghost Town universe. Please visit www.officialghosttown.com for more details.
Furthermore, Ghost Town has premiered their first ever official music video for “You’re So Creepy.” The video is available for viewing exclusively at www.officialghosttown.com and on Fueled By Ramen’s official YouTube channel, www.youtube.com/fueledbyramen. “You’re So Creepy” is one Ghost Town’s earliest compositions, written shortly after the band’s formation less than two years ago. Last year, Ghost Town sent the track to uber mixer, Serban Ghenea to be remixed for their debut album, “Party In The Graveyard.” Serban shared the track with hitmaker superstar producer Max Martin, both of whom felt the song was incredible, and with the right changes could reach its true potential. With Serban and Max’s input in place, the band decided that instead of remixing “You’re So Creepy” for “Party In The Grave Yard,” they would instead totally re-record a new version of the song for their forthcoming album, “THE AFTER PARTY” and use the track for their first ever music video and single.
The band has also announced that they will be bringing back their highly popular, weekly YouTube series, Ghost Town Tuesdays. Beginning May 6th, Ghost Town will release a new track from “THE AFTER PARTY” accompanied by a speed painting / lyric video every Tuesday leading up to the album’s release on June 10th. Fans will be able stream the new music each Tuesday at www.youtube.com/fueledbyramen and www.youtube.com/officialghosttown. What’s more, all fans who preorder the album via www.officialghosttown.com and iTunes will receive instant downloads of each new song as they premiere.
Having just wrapped a nationwide trek supporting Breathe Carolina on their “We Are Savages Tour,” Ghost Town are currently blowing up stages across North America as part of I See Stars’ “Red White & Black Tour.” The multi-artist trek is set to continue through mid-May. Following its completion, Ghost Town are set to embark on a UK headline tour which will feature a number of festival performances and will then return to the US later this summer for Vans Warped Tour ’14. What’s more, Ghost Town is set to perform a very special set at the pre-show boat party for the first annual Alternative Press Music Awards on July 21st alongside Issues and Marmozets (see itinerary attached).

Brazen, infectious, and uniquely crafted, “THE AFTER PARTY” is Ghost Town at their very best. Produced, engineered and mixed by the band’s very own Evan Pearce alongside Mike Green (All Time Low, New Found Glory), “THE AFTER PARTY” pushes the band’s signature electro-rock approach to new heights of diversity and is sonic proof that Ghost Town can achieve extraordinary otherworldliness through imaginative story lines and undeniable hooks.
Ghost Town – that is, Kevin Ghost (vocals), Evan Pearce (electronics), Alix Monster (guitars) and MannYtheDrummeR (drums) – has earned widespread praise for their fervent live shows and distinctive blend of digitalized-pop-punk. Shortly after the initial release of “PARTY IN THE GRAVEYARD” in January 2013, Ghost Town exploded across the web and found themselves atop the charts on countless social music sites. Furthermore, the band has developed a strong connection with their rapidly expanding fan base through constant interaction on their social media sites. Ghost Town, which has amassed 11 million views on their official YouTube page, has used the platform to release weekly updates and new tracks, each accompanied by their own unique artwork, all of which is created by honorary 5th member artist Alister Dippner aka Imamachinist.
