Strabane, County Tyrone
Formed by four friends in Strabane, Co. Tyrone, Those Ghosts set about like most Indie Rock bands in a garage trying to string together some songs - the first of which, 'Evelyn', rather unexpectedly became somewhat of an anthem on the Northern Irish scene, gaining the band many followers before they had even played their first show. That came in March 2013 to a sold out 200 capacity venue in their hometown.
Blown away by the response the band had received in their infancy, they hit the ground running with support slots alongside some of the finest homegrown talent in Northern Ireland as well as slots on the mainstage at Sea Sessions festival and the legendary Glasgowbury Festival’s swansong to a packed out tent of already faithful fans and new converts alike.
Discovering that the ideas were coming thick and fast, the band have already released 3 extremely well received E.P’s at this stage, both of which had tracks receiving plenty of airplay on both sides of the Atlantic on various alternative stations as well as a BBC Radio.
After a quick line-up juggle the band are embarking on another huge year of touring and releases. With 2 successful comeback shows, an appearance at the YouBloom Festival in Dublin and new single ‘Something I Said’ released on June 14th, the next year looks like it’s gonna be a good one for Those Ghosts…
