Details: Formed out of the influence of the spikes and stud street punk movement of the late 90s and early 2000, The Ghouls sound like the bastard son of hardcore punk and horror rock. The band started in the summer of 2001 with Singer Robert Price and after several line-up changes came to include Johnny Apathy on guitar, Zach Volta on Bass, and Eric End on drums. Taking their influences from such classics as the Ramones, The Misfits, and The Clash as well as the bands they grew up watching such as The Unseen, Oxymoron, The Casualties, and Philadelphias own hometown heroes, The Virus. Combining break neck speed with catchy choruses and dark melodic lyrics, The Ghouls are at home creating a circle pit at every show while the projecting their anger, aggression, and cynisism through their sound. Having toured with bands like Abrasive Wheels, The Unseen, Funeral Dress, and Red Alert and shared the stage with such acts as The Misfits, The Casualties, Rancid, The Business, Leftover Crack, and The Virus, The Ghouls keep themselves busy through energetic live shows and a rigorous touring schedule. With a Black Flag Get in the Van mentality of touring, the band tries to keep itself on the road as much as possible. In early 2005 this hard work paid off as Mark Unseen released the bands first 4 song E.P. Its Your Time to Die on his label A.D.D. Records. This release catapulted interest from several other labels and in mid 2006 the ghouls signed to California based SOS Records for their full length. Scheduled for release in November 2006,the 12 song release Stand Alone will see the band on the road headed for the west coast in the fall, and then a full US tour with yet to be announced label mates in the spring, as well as a slot on the world famous (or infamous) British Invasion festival in March. Come see the band destroy a stage near you!
