The Ghost Inside share their highly anticipated sixth album Searching For Solace out now via Epitaph Records. Four years since their self-titled album was named one of Loudwire's Best Rock and Metal Albums of 2020, Searching For Solace arrives at an optimal time in the lives of The Ghost Inside. Nine years removed from the horrific bus crash that forever changed their trajectory, vocalist Jonathan Vigil, guitarists Zach Johnson and Chris Davis, bassist Jim Riley, and drummer Andrew Tkaczyk have learned an esoteric truth about tranquility. As the axiom says, "it's the journey, not the destination" - a theme explored throughout the band's dynamic sixth album.

"People always ask me how I remain positive," Vigil muses. "I'm realizing now that there's never really a time where you reach that point of 'happiness.' It's a constant journey. I know that life is hills and valleys. You must be willing to embrace new things, stand up for yourself, and adapt. Because the goalposts just move further away. The search for solace never ends."

Thredge recently released the video for their song "Dysfunctional" from their forthcoming album, Dreams and Nightmare, and to celebrate we asked Ryan Duswalt to tell us about the track. Here is the story:

When recording our first album, we were in a major time crunch having to record 11 songs in only 10 days. To make matters worse, on day three we still didn't have a single track fully recorded due to technical issues in the studio. While this constraint was present, it didn't stop us from looking forward to what's next. Our lead singer Nero started writing this track in the kitchen of the home studio we were recording at, in which what started as a fun riff turned into a monster, but it wasn't an overnight process.
