Therefore I Am, Shipwreck A.D. Supergroup Ghost Thrower Announce EP
The Boston-based band is comprised of Travis Alexander [formerly of Therefore I Am] on vocals and guitar, Nick Webster [ex-Shipwreck A.D.] on bass, Robbie Rose [ex-Bravo f***ing Bravo, Lunglust] on drums, and Ben Anderson on guitar.
Featuring two new songs and remixed/remasted versions of three previously released songs, the Get Miserable EP will be available through digital retailers, such as iTunes and Amazon, and on 7" vinyl at shows.
Growing organically from the ashes of Therefore I Am's disbanding in 2010, Ghost Thrower served as an escape from the troubles surrounding Alexander at the time. He discloses, "A dear relationship ended, my band (the only thing I've known for five years) was breaking up and a close family member passed away. On a more superficial level, I was completely poor, jobless and homeless. I had a bad brain. Nothing was normal, nothing was cool and most of all, nothing felt good."
"I had a lot of song ideas, so I used my friend's attic to record some demos and one-liners from my notebook and I found solace in music again," Alexander explains. "I literally listened to nothing but the demos on repeat for weeks and realized that these songs had a weird way of helping me commiserate with my own misery. I figured that if I could write bummed out music for bummed out people to connect with, I might find some sort of happiness (as well as supplying some to others)."
