Ginger Wildheart Confirms March Release Of 'Ghost In The Tanglewood' And Accompanying Tour Dates

Monday, 08 January 2018 Written by Jon Stickler

Ginger Wildheart has announced a run of headline shows in the UK this spring.

Ginger will accompany the release of his country-folk album, 'Ghost In The Tanglewood', out on March 2 through Graphite Records, with stops in Halifax, Leicester, Brighton, Frome, Swindon and Southampton, alongside dates supporting Levellers on their acoustic tour, Ferocious Dog in Buckley and Manchester and Frank Turner at his Lost Evenings event at the Roundhouse in London.

Speaking about the LP, Ginger said:

"While leaning towards country music, my fairly unavoidable accent means that the songs come off less Willie Nelson and more Bobby Thompson, but every lyric is purely heartfelt and every song is as true a story as you’ll ever hear. This stuff has always been in my blood since I was a wee nipper and it’s an honour to finally get it out for people to hear.

"The songs largely deal with the traditionally taboo subject of mental health issues, specifically depression, which I have suffered from my whole life. Having recently weaned myself off medication, the music I make now serves as both therapy and comfort. I find relief in this music and hope that the songs bring a similar comfort to the listener. The narrative throughout is pretty confessional in nature, but I think the candid approach showcases the lyrics in a more bold and open way than a traditional rock album."

The album began life as a Pledge campaign, with profits donated to the Samaritans, with the main the cause being suicide prevention. Ginger added:

"I shouldn’t need to explain how very important it is to make people aware of mental health issues and suicide prevention, but this is a subject that can never be talked about enough. Speaking out about mental illness is currently our strongest weapon in the war against suicide. We still live in an age where governments and communities continue to largely ignore this problem, so anything that highlights this issue is a step in the right direction. I hope I can do more to raise awareness and be a small part of the change in attitude that is needed in regards to this issue."

Fri 26 Oct 2018

Once a band that disgorged Sabbathian doom metal splattered with gothic horror imagery, they have evolved into a rock spectacle that’s part pantomime, part musical and part Satanic disco.

Unless you’ve been living under a rock, you’re probably aware that Michigan’s Greta Van Fleet are one of the first young rock bands in a long time to generate a truly massive amount of hype ahead of the release of their debut full length. After two very successful EPs - 2017’s ‘Black Some Rising’ and ‘From The Fires’ - we have ‘Anthem Of The Peaceful Army’ in our hands, and it’s an interesting proposition.
