Fresh off lifting everybody’s spirits with the emotional lead track from their upcoming self-titled album, metalcore giants The Ghost Inside are back with a bruising second single.
Titled “Pressure Point,” the band’s latest is a pissed-off, hard-hitting anthem that isn’t afraid to center around negativity.
“Almost all TGI songs take the listener on a journey from dark to light or from despair to hope,” explains bassist Jim Riley. “On this record we made a conscious effort to let individual songs explore different emotions we’ve been experiencing and not force them to have a positive turn. We feel like the album as a whole will give you that hopeful feeling, even though a song like ‘Pressure Point’ might not do that by itself.”
“Instead,” Riley added, “we embraced being pissed off and let it pour out through some of the most aggressive and pointed lyrics we’ve ever had. We try to avoid cursing in our songs but sometimes you’re just so fed up that nothing less than a big loud ‘fuck’ will get the job done.”
