With huge, meaty-riffs and bold emotions mixing Post Punk, New Wave, Grunge and Alt Rock,
Ghost Accuser are tapping into a whole new vein of creativity. After carefully crafting
an entire set of intense new material the band have just released their debut album
The Dublin based band is centered around the songwriting and vision of founder
Joey McGowan (Vocals, Guitar). McGowan recruited the talents
of Michael Newell (Drums), Martin Fagan (Bass) and Felix Meehan (Guitar, Vocals), and
together they forged the deep sonically textured sound of Ghost Accuser.
Existential lyricism, cathartic grooves, gritty Alt Rock sound , Ghost Accuser spark
imaginations and give listeners something solid to turn-up on their stereos...something
that genuinely connects, resonates impacts ... something REAL. With all the wild madness,
melody and mayhem you can squeeze into the mix
Ghost Accuser are charged and ready to burrow deep into your subconscious and
to the top of your playlist.
Tell us a bit about yourself? We are a Dublin based alternative rock band with grunge and post-rock influences merging shades of trip-hop and kraut rock.
There are a lot of emerging artists in the UK right now. What sets you apart from the rest? We have developed a sound true to ourselves and our influeneces.
What’s your back-story? Joe our front man had played bass for several years with various underground rock bands most notably a stint with seminal Irish band Whipping Boy. With songs built up over the years he decided a platform was needed to showcase these eclectic tunes so alas Ghost Accuser was born.
