The Ghost Inside make their long-awaited return with ‘Aftermath’

The Ghost Inside are officially back!

On Wednesday (April 22), the California-founded band gave fans a massive dose of great news, news that you can say has been five years in the making.

This June, the band will release their much-anticipated fifth studio album, The Ghost Inside. The upcoming record is due out June 5 through the band’s home of Epitaph Records. Pre-orders for the album are currently available for purchase here.

Will Putney from Fit For an Autopsy did a lot of the technical aspects of the record like producing, engineering, and mixing while A Day to Remember’s Jeremy McKinnon co-produced.

As if that wasn’t good enough, the band also unleashed its first single, “Aftermath.” According to the group’s post on social media, the new tune is “a tribute to the community that supported us, stood by us, and raised us from the ashes.”

Watch the music video for “Aftermath” above, which features news footage from the tragic bus accident that changed their lives.

The Ghost Inside marks the group’s long-awaited return to the music world. Following a few setbacks during recovery, it’s nice to see that not only are they back, but they are back and ready to take on the world.

The Ghost Inside is the follow-up to 2014’s Dear Youth.

Epitaph Records to Give The Ghost Inside All Profits from Albums


Epitaph Record will be giving back to one of their bands this holiday season. On Monday evening (Dec. 14), Epitaph head honcho, Brett Gurewitz revealed that all profits from the sales of The Ghost Inside’s album will be given directly to the band; the record label will not be getting a cut, at all. In the letter, Gurewitz writes, “In light of this tragedy, Epitaph has decided to donate all profits from the sales of all The Ghost Inside’s albums, worldwide, directly to the band – indefinitely.”

This isn’t even the first time the record label has done something to help the band that is still recovering from the tragic accident that took the life of both drivers. Late last month, the label hosted a pop-up shop which was selling merchandise from The Ghost Inside and other Epitaph bands to raise money for the band, their crew, and the families of both drivers.

Read Gurewitz’s complete letter about his decision below.


The Ghost Inside were involved in the fatal bus crash on Nov. 19 while they were in route to Mesa, AZ. The band’s tour bus collided head-on with a tractor-trailer on U.S. Highway 180, eight miles east of the border patrol checkpoint outside of El Paso, TX. As previously stated, both drivers were killed in the accident while the other eleven people on the bus, which included the band, survived but were hospitalized.

Jonathan Vigil (vocals), Zach Johnson (guitar), Andrew Tkaczyk (drums), and two others were hospitalized in critical condition. The severity of the accident resulted in the band announcing earlier this month that they will on an indefinite hiatus.

If you feel like helping out, feel free to head on over to Epitaph’s website and buy some TGI merch.

The Ghost Inside Part Ways with Guitarist


Fans of The Ghost Inside were given a little bit of a shock earlier today when the band announced that founding member, Aaron Brooks, was no longer in the band.

Taking to Facebook, the Los Angeles-based group shared the standard response to a departure by saying the guitarist/ backing vocalist had left and that they wish him the best in his future endeavors.

“The Ghost Inside is parting ways with guitar player, Aaron Brooks. The band wishes him the best of luck in the next chapter of his life.”

Brooks has been a part of the band since their inception in 2004. Brooks contributing to the band’s four albums including the recently released, Dear Youth which came out last November through Epitaph Records.

In the same post about Brooks’ departure, TGI posted a link to the band’s website for upcoming tour dates. Their upcoming tour will be in Europe, but will all begin at A Day to Remember’s Self Help Festival in San Bernardino, CA on Mar. 7.
