"Big, atmospheric rock!" - Johnny Doom, Kerrang Radio
Born out of a passion to create dark and heavy rock music, Chasing Ghosts was formed by Lee Brueton. Influenced by bands such as Paradise Lost, Anathema, Moonspell and driven by a desire to give the UK rock scene some much needed fresh blood. In contrast to most bands within this genre, 'Chasing Ghosts' have carved their own unique sound, with clean vocals and emotive lyrics that are there to be heard and not hidden, compliment and not dominate. Their songs evoke emotions of fear, sadness, loss and regret, entwined within each doom laden guitar riff. Now signed to 'Mighty Music,' Denmark's largest premier rock/metal label, with plans for an album release in February 2018.
Recorded by 'Enter Shikari' engineer Tim Morris and aired on over 50 radio stations worldwide, the track 'Fallen From Grace' became the band's first official video. The video featured Pixie Le Knot, actress and contortionist from 'Game of Thrones' and 'The Devil Inside' . It debuted on 'Amp'd TV', hosted by Kerrang's very own Johnny Doom.
The band are Nelson Cancini (Vocals), Lee Brueton (Bass/Synth), Ashley Clark (Guitars), and Harry Mitten (Guitars), four strangers brought together with the sole purpose to produce honest and unrelenting rock music. Winners of Ubeat 'Rock Act of the Year' 2016, one of the UKs most celebrated emerging music awards.
Chasing Ghosts have played prestigious venues such as the Camden Assembly, The Craufurd Arms, Bedford Esquires, Hope and Anchor and headlined the O2 Academy 2 Liverpool. A European tour is planned for early 2018 to coincide with their album launch in Copenhagen and festival dates to be announced soon.
