Listen to “Outer Space” – BELOW:
This song is one of many Love Ghost songs produced by Danny Saber (The Rolling Stones, Alice Cooper, the Charlatans, Public Enemy etc.), for what will be two full EP’s to be released this fall. “I’ll be Fine” was the sombre follow up to the lighthearted “Chasin Money and Bitches ” single that was a comedic and hedonistic look on what it is that our culture values most, from the viewpoint of a teenager living in Los Angeles in 2020. Prior to that, the band released the grunge era-inspired Let It All Burn with the accompanying scorcher of a video, directed by Dean Karr (Queens of the Stone Age, Mark Lanegan). The song was featured on Spotify’s coveted “New Noise” playlist in addition to Apple’s “Breaking Hard Rock” and “Fresh Blood” playlists, having garnered over 1 Million streams since its release with close to a million streams on the video alone.
Love Ghost is Finnegan Bell (guitar and lead vocals), Ryan Stevens (bass and background vocals), Samson Young (drums and background vocals), Daniel Alcala (guitar) and Cory Batchler (keyboards). All of whom are fresh out of high school but have been playing together and writing songs since Junior High.
Despite their young age, the band are seasoned international road warriors. Last year they toured Ireland, Japan, played the mainstage at Festival fff in Ambato, Ecuador, and most recently played a sold-out hometown show at Resident in Los Angeles. They have supported Buckcherry, Berlin, Smash Mouth, The Young Dubliners, The Tubes, Fuel, and Irish singer/songwriter Mundy. Their music videos have won numerous awards from over 30 film festivals around the world and the band was awarded Best Alternative Rock Band by the Hollywood Music in Media Awards and received The Jean Luc Goddard Award from Cult Critic Magazine.
