The Ghost Inside are streaming their fourth full-length, Dear Youth, due out November 17th on Epitaph Records. Vocalist Jonathan Vigil recently explained the album title in an interview with Alternative Press:
“To be honest, it was just a lyric; it was just an idea for a song. It wasn’t necessarily going to be the album title. As the album started coming to life—we don’t title albums until the album’s completely done—we were going through the lyrics and it was actually our guitar player Aaron [Brooks]’s idea because it was a lyric on the song “Dear Youth (Day 52).” The whole letter idea was actually separate from the actual lyrics. The letter I wrote to myself had nothing to do with what the lyrics were about—it’s in the same vein—but the lyric “dear youth” just really stood out and was a really cool concept. It’s really what this record is about for me and us.”
The album was produced by A Day To Remember vocalist Jeremy McKinnon and Andrew Wade. The band will be co-headling a tour this month with Every Time I Die, along with Architects (UK), Hundredth, and Backtrack.
