About the tour
Holiday Ghosts – a prolific four-piece of musicians and friends bring their hip-shaking, head thrashing, raw and upbeat energy to their recordings and unforgettable live shows. The result is unadulterated and unclean, unabashed and uncompromised. As drummer, Katja Rackin, and guitarist Sam Stacpoole, share lead vocal duties, their voices come together as one with dispersed harmonies, often joined by rhythm guitarist Ben Nightingale, and grounded by Morgan Lloyd-Mathews tastefully simplistic bass grooves. Call it garagy, jangly, rock n rolly, indie, punky, poppy, whatever you wanty.
They released their album ‘Absolute Reality’ this year with Fatcat Records, which is full of the noise and texture that Holiday Ghosts love from New York Punk music and New Wave records, as well as some softer and sparse arrangements which allow for more vulnerability.
Since the birth of the band they’ve played iconic stages throughout the UK and Europe, from Latitude Festival to Left Of The Dial, from Dot to Dot to Misty Fields from the Pyrenees mountains to the chapels of Chester. They’ve attracted widespread praise across the press community (KEXP, Brooklyn Vegan, The Guardian, The Independent, Stereogum, DIY, Clash, Gigwise & more), and been spotlighted by BBC 6 Music with interviews and Album of The Day feature. With catchy melodies, fiery lyrics, hard-picked guitars and a DIY punk spirit, Holiday Ghosts have cemented their status in the UK music scene.
