Heavy, alternative two-piece rockers Ghosts Of Men announce the release of their new single ‘Trouble’ on 1 May 2020 through Regent Street Records, backed with another standout track ‘Give You Something’ from this remarkable duo. ‘Trouble’ is the first salvo in the campaign leading up to the release of the Ghosts Of Men album later this year, with more singles to be announced on the way.

New music is perhaps just what we need to cheer us up at this point in time. ‘Trouble’ was slated to come ahead of a busy Summer of gigs and festival slots but, like all of us, Ghosts Of Men are having to bunker down and play the waiting game; the band have slots at Bloodstock and HRH 14 on the cards. Previously, the band have toured extensively in Europe and played great Festivals; particular highlights being RosRock with Skindred in the NL, and Bearded Theory and Beautiful Days.  The band are a potent live force, being described as, “Like a two piece Queens of the Stone Age, if Queens of the Stone Age were entirely composed of Morecambe and Wise” by BBC Radio.  However, make no mistake, this band are deadly serious when it comes to the music and to playing live – having already performed over 150 festival dates.

‘Trouble’ is the latest in the band’s series of killer tracks, and follows their well-received singles ‘Crooked Back’, ‘Hang Fire’ and ‘I See You’.  Constantly building their fanbase, Adam and Clegg set out to tear into every show they play, and take their beloved audience with them. They might only use drums and guitar but the sound that Ghosts Of Men can create is unbelievable.

Clegg [Guitars/Vox] said, “Our new tune ‘Trouble’ is a story of the one that your mates warn you about, but you don’t listen. It’s a simple and unpretentious, balls to the wall, precautionary tale and as a slice of heavy, dirty, alt-rock is exactly the kind of thing you can expect from us on our upcoming album”.  Ads [Drums] explains that, “Whilst the year that was set to be the most exciting and biggest year for us so far as a live act has been postponed, we think it’s doubly important to bring the music to our fans in the only way we can: LOUD, LAIRY AND ON YOUR SPEAKERS. It’s really made us think about creativity when it comes to the accompanying videos too as you’ll see with this one for ‘Trouble’. Warning: ‘Trouble’ is only the first in many slices of GOM during this very strange and challenging time.”

Royal Blood, White Stripes, Suicide, Black Keys, The Kills, Carter USM, the world of rock has seen a few two-piece bands that can overcome the perceived limitations of the a limited line-up, strip back to essentials and really bring the noise.  In fact, Les Carter from Carter USM said, “Ghosts Of Men are amazing. People always said that my old band made a big noise for two people, we cheated though, we had backing tapes. Clegg and Adam take it to a whole new level. Awesomeness drips from every note.”

There’s a lot more to come from Ghosts Of Men, ‘Trouble’ is but the latest step from this truly spirited act.
