March 11 — Stabbing Westward premiered the video for its latest single this weekend.
The band debuted the video for its new single, ‘Ghost’ Friday. The video’s premiere came more than a month after the band premiered the single by itself. it is a simple presentation that features the band’s members recording their parts for the song in the studio.
‘Ghost’ is the second single from the band’s forthcoming album, Ghosts, which is scheduled for release March 18 through COP International. Stabbing Westward premiered the album’s lead single, ‘I Am Nothing‘ and its companion lyric video, in November.
The musical arrangement featured in ‘Ghost’ takes audiences back to Stabbing Westward’s heyday through its electronics and haunting vocals from front man Christopher Hall. The brooding keyboard line, Hall’s vocals and the staccato nature of the guitar riffs work with the drums to make the arrangement in whole a song that throws back to works from Wither Blister Burn & Peel.
The press release announcing the single’s premiere did not include information about the song’s lyrical theme. A close listen to the song however, infers a theme of someone feeling alone mentally and emotionally. That is just this critic’s interpretation and should not be taken as the only interpretation.
Pre-orders for Chasing Ghosts are open. The album’s track listing is noted below.
The full track listing for Chasing Ghosts is as follows:
- I Am Nothing
- Damaged Goods
- Ctrl Z
- Dead & Gone
- The End
