The Ghost Inside - Dear Youth Cover

Have The Ghost Inside outdone themselves with 'Dear Youth'?

With the concept for their fourth album coming from a letter addressed to frontman Jonathan Vigil’s younger self, ‘Dear Youth’ sees The Ghost Inside taking influence from the past to navigate their future. While there is no shortage of signature beatdowns – ‘My Endnote’ and ‘Mercy’ are sure to pummel live – the LA hardcore outfit venture into new territory on the epic, slow build of ‘Phoenix Flame’ and the more punk-driven melody of ‘Wide Eyed’, which features letlive.’s Jason Butler. Topping 2012’s ‘Get What You Give’ wasn’t going to be easy, but The Ghost Inside have kept up the momentum at the very least.
