Modern Prog Metal Act BLUE HOUR GHOSTS are sharing new single“Walking Backwards” in anticipation of the band’s sophomore album “DUE”.
singer Ricky DC comments about the new single:
“‘Walking Backwards’ is an intense anthem scratching the itch of the spots where we feel guilty and imperfect, as it talks about walking in circles and find ourselves with our feet where we already failed and made mistakes, but it’s a necessary condition to do it over again to feel human, to know we can fail and fall, and doing it in good (or bad) company validates the process”.
guitarist Diego Angeli adds:
“Musically-wise it presents all the facets of the BHG sound: powerful and proggy riffs, haunting vocals, pounding drums and bass, acoustic guitars, hypnotic and dreamy layers of keyboards and synths. It really represents the perfect synthesis of our sound and for this reason we felt it was the ideal opening song for the album and first single, the right way to introduce new listeners to our world, and to let established fans feel immediately at home”
Produced by the talented Giuseppe “Dualized” Bassi (Fear Factory, Machine Head, Meshuggah) at Dysfunction Production, with their sophomore effort “Due” set to be released in early 2021 by Rockshots Records, Blue Hour Ghosts are ready to unleash another fresh, powerful and intense melodic assault, set to take any listener by the storm and to conquer an even larger share of music lovers.
Hailing from the foggy plains of Modena, Italy, Blue Hour Ghosts were formed in 2013 with the aim of giving birth to a personal and recognizable style of metal, drawing its influences from progressive music, classic metal, gothic and alternative rock. Their 2016 self-titled debut album, produced by the talented Giuseppe “Dualized” Bassi (Fear Factory), received unanimous acclaim from rock/metal magazines all over Europe as “one of the best debut albums since a while in the melodic metal world” (LordsOfMetal, 2016)
Their distinctive sound delivers a wide range of soundscapes ranging from full metal aggression to soft, acoustic atmospheres, passing through infectious hooks that will enthrall any rocker, and sophisticated layered arrangements to satisfy the most demanding palates.
Together with the new band members, Blue Hour Ghosts started writing their second album, joining forces again with producer Giuseppe Bassi. The writing process went through all along 2019, and in summer 2020, after a forced hiatus induced by the Covid-19 lockdown, the band completed the recordings of their new album.
With their sophomore effort “Due”, Blue Hour Ghosts are ready to unleash another fresh, powerful and intense melodic assault, set to take any listener by the storm and to conquer an even larger share of music lovers.
“Due” is set to be released in early 2021 by Rockshots Records.
