It has been a few months since we have REALLY let all of you know what's going on in our creative worlds. Usually, because there is so much going on and so many things happening so fast, we tend to fill you all in on cool upcoming news. This time, however, I thought it would be cool to share with you a slight change in philosophy that is really guiding the future of our band, creatively speaking.
Often, bands are forced into a world of doing one thing over and over, musically speaking, but being that we now have a body of work that includes 4 albums, we are finally in a unique position to start writing very specific and different records. That's not to say that we haven't approached every album we've done very differently, but we were beginning to feel like we might be in danger of starting to write songs from the same bag of tricks each time. We LOVE that our national label release for "The Kids Can't Dance" will feature our 12 best songs that we've released so far, but the creative future of We The Ghost looks even more awesome. If there's one thing everyone should always know about our band, it's that we will never rest on our laurels and try to write the same album or batch of songs over and over. We will keep growing, and every record will ALWAYS be approached differently.
Even though "The Kids Can't Dance" is yet to be released nationally (Soon, my lovelies) we are already hard at work writing for the NEXT album. That's just our way. We've always been a band that prefers creating and writing to touring. Don't get me wrong, we love touring, but nothing compares to the feeling we get when we circle up in our rehearsal space or step into our studio to actually bring a song or new idea to life. The sonic approach to our new music probably most resembles a mix between our "White Noise" album that featured songs like "Let Me Know" and "Kiss Kiss Bang Bang" and our "Sinking Suspicion" album which featured "Letters to God"…. and "Sinking Suspicion".
What we've been working on lately is much more rootsy and naturally approached while featuring a little less synthesizer work. We've been taking A LOT of influence from old school Motown recordings. While it seems like more and more bands are sticking to tried-and-true formulas, we just want to be the best band we can possibly be. That involves honesty and a fresh approach to recording music. This is not something that the pop-world likes very much, but we just wouldn't be who we are as a band if we cared about that sort of thing. I CAN'T WAIT to take you all on this journey with us. Aside from "The Kids Can't Dance" we will be uploading a new song for you very soon. to hold you over until the album starts to hit stores. Get ready :)
Peace, Love, & Music,
They Are Poltergeist
I mean We The Ghost
