Spring in NC + New Album from Stephen!

We here in Ghostland have been enjoying our much needed hiatus, but we're starting to miss all those ghost-heads out there. Whenever Mother Nature decides to melt all this snow she's been dumping on us, it'll be time to hit the pavement and go see yous. We have some great shows lined up for 2014 and really hope to see you there.

NC Shows

Charlotte fans will appreciate an intimate evening with us as we return to our old stomping ground, The Evening Muse on March 28th before we tear down the walls at Cat's Cradle in Carrboro, NC March 29th. From there, we will continue our home-state onslaught by setting fire to The Grey Eagle in beloved Asheville on April 12th. There's a bunch more going on, and things being added all the time, so make sure to keep an eye on the tour dates. And follow us on all the places that you follow people.

Audiotree Session

We were delighted to stop by Audiotree to record a set back in December. Here's the resulting video!


Holy Ghost Tent Revival play a well-tempered brand of indie rock that calls to mind a broad, venerable range of influences. Their sound boasts a hybrid of musical styles executed with precision by the multi-instrumentalist members. The session’s first track channels the strolling flow of Nick Drake, while the vocals of “Telephone Wire” seem to summon the spirit of Lennon. The delivery, of course, is truly unique.

The band’s Audiotree set evidenced their ability to structure a performance that maintains momentum, continually introduces new elements, and just makes you want to move, from song to song. With their unique nod to classic rock blended with indie quirk, Holy Ghost Tent Revival is a band whose live performance is sure to leave an impression on any live music enthusiast.

And the time keeps rolling on...

Dearest fans from Ghostland,

Happy Halloween!! Anyone in the mood to get spooked and juked can join us in the Outer Banks TONIGHT at Avon's Koru Beach Club!  Join us afterwards as we boogieboard away from the sharks at feeding time.

We're all still floating all dreamlike from our experience at Shakori Hills Grassroots Festival.  However, we were sad that our favorite soundman, Roger Brady, couldn't be there to tweak and twerk the knobs due to some recent medical issues.  With that in mind, we're playing a free show in his honor this Sunday, Nov. 3 in Greensboro at the Blind Tiger with hopes to raise some loot.  We take the stage at 11 pm, but there's a whole smathering of other good local bands for whom you should come throw your voices out.

November will see us in the Nation's southern parts, specifically in New Orleans at the Foundry on the 8th and The Earl in Atlanta on the 9th.  Lincoln Theatre welcomes us and friends Roseland on November 15th in Marion, VA.

We shall get all holly and jolly before St. Nick's time with good pals Hoots and Hellmouth (dare I say, "in the nick of time"?) beginning in Nashville at the High Watt (12/6) and ending in Pittsburgh at Club Cafe (12/14). Details:

12/6 NASHVILLE, TN @The High Watt

12/7 LOUISVILLE, KY @ New Vintage

12/11 CHICAGO, IL @ Subterranean

12/12 ANN ARBOR, MI @ The Ark

12/13 CLEVELAND, OH @ Beachland Tavern

12/14 PITTSBURGH, PA @ Club Cafe

Thanks to all of you who keep your ears and hearts open.  We love to fill them.
