Roadkill Ghost Choir

Roadkill Ghost Choir announce the August 19 release of their debut full-length LP

In Tongues. Produced by Doug Boehm (Girls, Dr. Dog, Tokyo Police Club), In Tongues was recorded in Athens, Georgia, and in their home studio in Deland, Florida. The album features 10 new songs including “A Blow To The Head,” which can be streamed here:

 

The band will be hitting the road in support of In Tongues, including festival appearances at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.

 

Emerging from the desolate heart of Central Florida, Roadkill Ghost Choir make unsettling, powerful American rock–Tom Petty by way of Radiohead and Cormac McCarthy. Set against Kiffy Myer’s ghostly pedal steel, singer and main songwriter Andrew Shepard triumphantly conjures an allegorical American landscape of drifters, specters and violent saints. Andrew’s brothers Maxx (drums) and Zach (bass) Shepard round out the rhythm section, and Stephen Garza handles lead guitar.

 

The band released their debut EP ‘Quiet Light’ in 2013 in the midst of a touring run that included opening for Band of Horses and festival slots at New York’s Governor’s Ball, Austin City Limits and Shaky Knees in Atlanta, GA. In January 2014, the band was invited to perform on the David Letterman Show, where they performed “Beggar’s Guild.”
