Ghosts

There are five separate bands who go by the name Ghosts.

The first were a four-piece melodic rock band from England, formerly known as Polanski. They signed to Atlantic Records in September 2006 and released their debut album "The world is outside" on June 4th, 2007. Ghosts have played in the U.K. at V Festival in Staffordshire and Chelmsford. They were busy writing and recording their second album in a Swedish island of Marstrand however nothing became of it. However on 17th February 2011 they released 2 demos and a press release about their reforming, through myspace (ghostsuk).

The second is a now defunct screamo band from St. Paul, Minnesota. Two of the band’s members were previously in An Embrace of Angels. Ghosts broke up in September 2005 and two members continued making music in the band Mr. Sinister!.

The third (spelt GHOSTS, all upper-case) is a noise-pop project belonging to Ben Catt, who released two collage-like EPs, ‘Ghosts’ and ‘Drum Lakes’ through Sheffield’s Dear You Records in 2009 and 2010. Leaving Sheffield in late 2009, Ben now makes music under the name Outside The Museum.

The fourth were a highly eclectic post-rock band from the Surrey area, though named Ghosts, their name was always used with a lower case g. Unfortunately, they never got round to recording anything to disc but played some immense live shows – One of which supporting Jenniferever. They disbanded due to continual drummer problems (university, etc.), but are rumoured to be reforming again some time soon under a new name. Members of the band are currently working solo as Quarry Eyes and Echoic.

There is also a fifth one a U.K. based dub group releases include the Album Full Frontal Dublotomy released on the Zander Music Label in 1996.
