GHOST COLOR – “IN OTHER WORDS”
AMERICAN BOOK OF THE DEAD EP (MAY 31, 2017)
June 16, 2017
With their second EP ‘American Book of the Dead’, Ghost Color move more towards the edge of what most people would consider heavy ‘Alternative’ music. They stared into the Abyss of where they want their music to go, and it stared right back into them.
With the writing process taking place right in the middle of heartbreaks and new life challenges, the members of Ghost Color surrendered what they thought they wanted their next EP to sound like, and let turmoil, uncertainty, and recovery guide them to the songs that would make up their newest EP.
Eric: Our new EP is just four songs long even though we planned for an eight song LP. But we realized we were trying to force eight songs that didn’t want to be together onto an EP of four songs that did.
Chris: We stopped trying to force the songs into the box we wanted them to be in, when they were telling us that they didn’t want to be there. We’re still really proud of our first EP, the songs are good, but they didn’t belong together.
Bryan: We also stopped doing things like wondering if a song was to much this, or not enough that. We learn to write a song till it tells us it’s finished being written. I know that sounds weird but it works.
