Formed nearly a decade ago in Vancouver, Canada, the garage-rock group grew out of founders Byran Nicol, Drew Wilky, and Mike Wilky's desire to hang out, listen to records and play music. After the trio uploaded a few demos to Myspace--this was 2008, after all--a small punk record label from Iowa reached out and asked if they wanted to do a single. The single quickly led to the group's first full-length album, the self-titled Dead Ghosts.

"We got lucky," Nicol, the group's frontman, recalls. "When we started playing, we were just messing with recording, and generally goofing around. We had no vision at all. We just wanted to play house parties or something--that was the limit of our aspirations."

Defying their own expectations, by 2015 the group had released two more albums--Can't Get No and Love and Death and All the Rest--both of which released on LA record label, Burger Records and embarked on several lengthy tours across Europe and US. Playing a distinctive brand of swaggering, blues-infused lo-fi rock, the five-piece quickly won over transatlantic fans and scored fresh fodder for their lyrics with their punk-rock antics.

    Dead Ghosts

    Pop

    Dead Ghosts are a four-piece garage rock and/or roll band from Vancouver, British Columbia. Rauchy lo-fi recording style, country-esque vibes, "sweet guitar pluck-and-jangle," driving rhythms, and the occasional Back From The Grave feel is the basic make up of their songs. To get another idea of their sound, they've gotten comparisons to namely the bands the Black Lips and King Khan & BBQ Show.
  • Spoon Benders

    Spoon Benders

    Music

    Heavy psych-punk-doom-prog group based out of Portland Oregon, with members formerly in Fantastic Plastic, Devils Club, and Toast Ghost. Creating a loud, disturbing, and diverse sound inspired by Thee Oh Sees, The Cramps, Goggs, and The Pleasure Seekers
