The Ghost Inside have taken the next leap in their remarkable comeback after a horrific bus accident, with the band now working on a new album. The new LP will mark the metalcore act’s first since 2014’s Dear Youth.
The band’s members were seriously injured in the November 2015 highway crash that killed both the driver of their tour bus and the driver of the tractor trailer that was involved in the collision. Three of the members of The Ghost Inside were hospitalized in critical condition, with drummer Andrew Tkaczyk losing one of his legs.
Last month, The Ghost Inside made a triumphant return to the stage, playing their first gig since the accident at the sold-out Shrine Outdoors in Los Angeles. Now comes word that they are hard at work on a new LP.
A new tweet from the band shows a pic of the members working on new music, with the caption, “Update: Album #5 @WillPutney @jeremymckinnon @epitaphrecords.”
