GHOSTBOUND - Presents First Single From Upcoming Album

  • Print

Ghostbound, a Brooklyn (USA) based project creating some sort of cinematic rock/metal with nods toward black metal, post-punk, the 80s, and masterminded by musician and actor Alec A. Head, have released a new single, "Ada, Age Of Eight". The song is from their upcoming album Extended Play For My Sweet Mary Thyme, set for official release on 26th March.

Alec commented: "This song was written during the summer of 2003, while I was on vacation with my parents in London. We took a tour of Highgate National Cemetery, and in it there was a pietá of a young girl being borne away in the arms of an angel, which had been erected by her father after her tragic death at the age of eight. I was very moved by the story, and it remained with me for 18 years, seemingly. I wanted to capture the joy of going to a safer place free of disease and torment in addition to the feeling of the father himself as he acknowledges that his daughter is now free of illness. It is meant as an expression of joy and not grief, necessarily, but there is certainly that, as well." Link
