Holy Ghost! Give Up Album Details, Plot U.S. Tour With Cut Copy
Holy Ghost! plan to set dancefloors around the world on fire with their self-titled debut, due out in April. Fans have already gotten a taste of what's to come with the release of the insanely catchy single "Do It Again". The band's 10-song release will feature guest appearances the Rapture's Luke Jenner, Penguin Prison's Chris Glover and Michael McDonald. Yes, that Michael McDonald.
The litany of guest stars is all part of the duo's plan to mercilessly dominate the electronic music game. Or at least craft tracks that don't require seizure-inducing strobe lights and alcohol-filled Styrofoam cups to be enjoyed.
"I didn't want to limit myself to making an album that could only be played in clubs," says Alex Frankel. Partner in crime Nick Millhiser agreed, adding "We were trying to make something that people would want to listen to front to back at home."
Holy Ghost! will also be hitting the road with dance-rock trio Cut Copy for a U.S. trek. View the album's tracklist as well as tour dates below.
