U.S. alternative metallers The Ghost Next Door - hailing from the San Francisco Bay Area - will release a self-titled debut album on June 19th via Mausoleum Records.
The Ghost Next Door emerged from a desire to marry the dark melancholy of 80s and 90s alternative with the aggression and drive of Bay Area metal.
A founding member of Sacrilege BC and Release, guitarist/vocalist Gary Wendt grew up in the Bay Area. While with Skinlab, he recorded that group's debut album and toured across Europe with Machine Head and Exodus. Now Gary continues his journey through The Ghost Next Door.
