Grandpa's Ghost

Grandpa's Ghost

The amazing Grandpa's Ghost from Pocahontas, Illinois will release their new double LP "The Carnage Queen" on Transduction Records early in 2017.

The band was originally known for its cow-punk, country/psych sound but over the course of 20+ years, has moved into more experimental terrain, collaborating with other musicians, filmmakers, writers, painters and performance artists.

On their forthcoming album the band is joined by special guest Tim Garrigan (Dazzling Killmen, You Fantastic!) - the album sees the Ghost returning to the roots of song-based psychedelia: blues, rock, country, free-jazz and folk - another stop on their singular journey as one of the braver, original voices of the American underground.

More details on the album release coming soon.
