HOWL AT THE MOON
A SLAVE TO THE GHOST
A Slave To The Ghost was recorded over the course of six sessions at Second World Studios in 2015 by Howl At The Moon, having recently adopted a dedicated DIY ethos of self-engineering, producing and mixing by all members, under the technical expertise and steady hand of lead guitarist Matthew Storey. In late 2015, the first taste of A Slave To The Ghost was manifest in the single Russian Thistle, setting a scene of humanity struggling to exist in a world destroyed by poor political decision-making and subsequent inaction in the face of climate change. The immaculately executed accompanying dark and luscious video featuring dystopian dustbowl era industrial farming the album's current and lead-in single Northern Push is a paean to the ever increasing desire to escape the oppression of the city, of the daily grind and of self-imposed psychological barriers. In anticipation of the release, the band embarked on a successful tour of Belgium, France and Spain in March 2015, enchanting audiences on the other side of the world and establishing their brand of raw and powerful songwriting and performance.
