"Finnish radiostation YLEX premiered a new Ghost Brigade song titled 'Lost In A Loop' yesterday. You can listen to a streaming low quality version of the song here. Just click play, it's the second song in the program."
Ghost Brigade has revealed that their upcoming album will be titled "Isolation Songs." Guitarist Wille Naukkarinen issued the following statement about the title:
"We had a few different working titles for this record but 'Isolation Songs' was the one that we collectively felt good about. I remember reading through the lyrics of this album just before we went to the studio in order to come up with an album title and the word 'isolation' came to mind several times. The songs themselves aren't directly about that at all but I think that having a feeling of being isolated has been an inspiration or a driving force to at least some of the content of these lyrics. And if you think about our songwriting process in general, 'Isolation Songs' is probably the best possible title to characterize that as well. I for example have to be completely isolated from the outside world to write riffs, melodies and songs for Ghost Brigade, it just doesn't work any other way. We can't go to our rehearsal room and jam until we come up with something 'pretty cool'. This band digs deeper than that. And besides, 'Isolation Songs' sounds like it's a title of a country album and that of course, is a big bonus. ;)"
Season of Mist Records has issued the following announcement about Ghost Brigade releasing a new album:
"Ghost Brigade took the world by surprise when their debut album 'Guided by Fire' was received with raving reviews in autumn of 2007. Stimulated by this success, the Finns will be back in the shops this year, with a new delivery of their original blend of Post-Rock, Metalcore, Progressive Rock, Death and Doom Metal.
"Their sophomore album is entitled 'Isolation Songs', and will be released on August 3rd in Europe (August 25th in the US) through Season Of Mist Records."
Ghost Brigade guitarist Wille also commented on the new album:
"We are collectively very proud of this record. It was a lot of work to get this album done, it took almost two years to write these songs, but now that it's 100% ready I can only say that I feel privileged to be a member of Ghost Brigade. I have a strong feeling we have created something very special with 'Isolation Songs' and it is by far my personal favorite of all recordings I've ever been a part of. I hope people will enjoy these songs as much as we do once they get the chance to hear them. If only August was here already! Be safe!"
