Check out the video for ‘December Sun’ right now; crank up the volume and rock out!
Vocalist and guitarist Paul McKenzie comments:
“December Sun was written during a time where I was making sense of losing some close friends of mine. There’s a few direct lines attributed to particular people.
For example, ‘It’s the luck of the draw and I’m just glad your number was a safe bet’ is delivered as if speaking to my friend Louise that passed – a recognition that life is always on a knife edge and we are sometimes blissfully unaware.”
Leaving rainy Edinburgh for the slightly less wet London to make “Big riffs and huge chorus hooks”, tattooist and front man Paul McKenzie set about forming This Year’s Ghost. The addition of Michigan’s stick wielding export Jake Tellinghusen on drums and modern day Samson, Joe Kusionowicz on bass began the band before guitarist Aaron Curse (previously of The Defiled) completed the multinational line up.
Touring the UK put This Year’s Ghost in touch with some fantastic people, resulting in debut EP Yesterday Becomes Tomorrow Today. Recorded with producer Matt Hyde (Slipknot/Machine Head/Funeral For A Friend/Gallows) who after hearing demos said it “sounds amazing already” and engineering from Meyrick de la Fuente (Exist Immortal).
2016 brings plans of gigs, festivals and getting their music heard by as many people as possible, alongside a new record with Matt Hyde. Rest assured there will be maximum energy and no lack of shows, as Paul puts says “I’ve yet to experience anything that comes close to the feeling of losing yourself in the moment on stage”.
