A. Swayze & The Ghosts
Good luck to anyone rocking up late to The Foundry for A Swayze & The Ghost because the room is rammed..Their set is fast and scathing and easily a BIGSOUND highlight for 2018 – The Music
One of the most talked about artists at BIGSOUND was A. Swayze & The Ghosts…the Hobart band have a live show in prime condition. It’s unpredictable, risky and unhinged and it’s impossible to take your eyes off frontman Andrew Swayze…you feel alive watching these guys. – Declan Byrne, triple j
It’s the kind of chaos that is missing from music sometimes and something I welcome back – STACK
A. Swayze & the Ghosts have released their new single ‘Suddenly’, the accompanying video and announced a string of shows across October and November.
“‘Written in one session, listening back to the original phone recording, not much has changed. It’s really important to all of us that we capture the urgency of our live shows on record, and with ‘Suddenly’ we found a balance between some our more garage-y punk roots, and the more complex and interesting writing styles that we have been striving for.”
A. Swayze & the Ghosts have performed at Falls Festival (winners of the triple j unearthed competition to perform), MONA Faux Mo, A Festival Called Panama, Boogie Festival, Cherry Rock Festival, Bad Friday Festival, By the Meadow and Bigsound, as well as playing alongside Jet, The Vines, Batpiss, Cosmic Psychos, Shame, Total Control and The Stems.
The band’s most recent shows as part of Bigsound created a big buzz amongst punters and industry alike, earning spots in many ‘best of’ lists across STACK, triple j, Double J, The Music and more.
‘Suddenly’ follows A. Swayze & the Ghosts’ 2017 self-titled debut EP, and is the start of a new chapter for the band.
