Love Ghost is an L.A. based rock band. An industry insider recently noted “their effortless melding of styles invokes the magic that was once commonplace in rock music. From Progressive to Industrial to the Classics with a taste of modern Hip-Hop, Love Ghost manages to walk the tight rope of mixing styles without it ever feeling contrived. The biting satirical lyrics give the listener a clear picture of what it’s like to be young in 2019. Love Ghost could be the first post-millennial band that matters and more importantly make guitars matter again!”
The band consists of Finnegan Bell (guitar and lead vocals), Ryan Stevens (bass and background vocals), Samson Young (drums and background vocals), Nicky Renard (lead guitar), and Cory Batchler (keyboards). They are currently working on a new album with legendary producer Danny Saber (The Rolling Stones, U2, David Bowie, Marilyn Manson, etc.). In 2019 they have toured Ireland (playing Whelan’s, Crane Lane and Roisin Dubh-amongst others), Japan (11 shows in Tokyo, Osaka, Kobe and Kyoto), and they were one of the main-stage bands at Festivalfff in Ambato, Ecuador.
Love Ghost has won numerous awards including Best Alternative Rock Band (Hollywood Music in Media Award), The Jean Luc Goddard Award (a yearly award from Cult Critic Magazine), and awards from over 30 film festivals around the world for their music videos. The band has opened for Buckcherry, Berlin, Smash Mouth, The Young Dubliners, The Tubes, Fuel, and Irish singer/songwriter Mundy.
Message from lead singer/songwriter Finnegan Bell:
“Let It All Burn” is how I see the world through my 18-year-old eyes. The hypocrisy and unwanted advice that weighed me down during senior year led to this song. My Dad being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer made me more determined- “fuck what they say, I make my own way”. The song was produced by Danny Saber (Rolling Stones, U2, Marilyn Manson, David Bowie).
Watch the video for 'Let It All Burn' - BELOW:
The music video was directed by Dean Karr. The promise of his early work led to Karr being asked to direct Marilyn Manson’s “Sweet Dreams.” The resulting piece drew immediate and broad commercial attention and served to propel both Manson and Karr into the forefront of the visual rock world. He was immediately in demand to work with other top artists.
His ground-breaking music videos have been seen by millions – at first on MTV and then viral on the web. Among the artists, he has worked with are Evanescence, Lisa Marie Presley, The Dave Matthews Band, X-Japan, Stevie Nicks, Willie Nelson, Velvet Revolver, Damian Marley, Ozzy Osbourne, Cypress Hill, Tommy Lee, Everlast, Dr Dre, Queens of the Stone Age, Godsmack, and Iron Maiden. They have received major MTV, Billboard, and MVPA Awards. Karr won “Video of the Year” and “Best Rock Video” at the recent MUCH Music Awards.
The video was filmed in a working iron foundry in South Gate, CA. The temperatures of the molten iron exceeded 2500 degrees.
