Ghosts in the Valley


Ghosts in the Valley is a post-punk/alternative band from Philadelphia, PA formed in the summer of 2008. They borrowed the philosophy of The Minutemen vowing to "jam econo" - writing songs in the 2 to 3 minute range and recorded them live with minimal overdubs. Apparently successful, early reviews compared them to not only The Minutemen, but fellow SST labelmates Husker Du and Dinosaur Jr as well as east coast kindred spirits Fugazi. Their debut album, Subtle as a Brick, was recorded in the summer of 2009 and released in January 2010. Read more on Last.fm

In the spring of 2012 they released their follow up album Clockpunchers recorded at Chicago's Electrical Audio with legendary producer Steve Albini.

Following their "Econo" mantra they recorded and mixed 12 tracks in 3 days with analog guru Albini masterfully capturing the bands raw energy on 2" tape. Following the release of Clockpunchers, original drummer Shawn Womer left the band and was replaced by former Arms for Apollo member, Alex Millard. The change in drummers actually managed to amp up the band's already bombastic sound. The power trio continues to play through out the Mid-Atlantic region while working on new material for the next album. Visit www.ghostsinthevalley.net.
