Dirty groove based riffs and soaring catchy melodic choruses with a fierce grunge heart at their core, This Year’s Ghost are a forceful energetic 4 piece influenced by the likes of Deftones, Alter Bridge and Pearl Jam.
Leaving rainy Edinburgh on a quest to make earth shattering rock music, Paul McKenzie (Vox/Guitar) found Aaron Curse (formerly The Defiled), Joe Kusionowicz (Bass) and Tom Wilkinson (Drums) in the bustling city of London where they recorded and released their 2015 debut EP Yesterday Becomes Tomorrow Today with producer Matt Hyde (Slipknot/Machine Head/Fightstar/Bullet For My Valentine) that also featured guest vocals from Stitch D (The Defiled). The record got widespread praise, with December Sun hitting people’s tele-visual boxes on Scuzz TV.
Back in the studio with Matt Hyde in 2017, TYG set about recording their latest EP Taxidermy Eyes pushing the sound into a heavier, more aggressive area without compromising the pop rock sensibilities of huge emotive choruses that have become their trademark.
Having shared the stage with Allusondrugs, Press To Meco, Brutai and Empire, This Year’s Ghost find themselves among good company having played Camden Rocks Festival 2017 where the line-up included the likes of Feeder, The Damned, The Coral, Reverend and The Makers and Pull Apart By Horses.
