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."

Shinedown - Attention Attention (Album Review)
Wed 23 May 2018
It’s been 10 years since Shinedown released ‘The Sound of Madness’, one of the greatest metal-infused hard rock albums of this century. Since then, the Jacksonville gang have produced two records that, although crammed with fine moments, didn’t match the calibre and diversity of that contemporary classic. ‘Attention Attention’ may follow suit in that regard, but it’s easily their strongest and most varied effort since setting that benchmark.
Ghost - Prequelle (Album Review)
Tue 05 Jun 2018
Photo: Mikael Eriksson Ghost have returned to engulf the world in hellish flames on their fourth album and most scintillating statement to date, ‘Prequelle’. But this time around the masked metallers wreak havoc through music far closer in spirit to ABBA and Duran Duran than Pentagram and Blue Öyster Cult.
A Perfect Circle - Eat The Elephant (Album Review)
Wed 09 May 2018
Many critics don't put much stock into dissecting album art, but it's tricky to talk about 'Eat the Elephant', California supergroup A Perfect Circle's first album in 14 years, without at least a passing reference to its sleeve. Fronted by an Uncle Fester-esque character cradling an octopus, the ostentatious cover will trigger a gut response from anyone who grew up listening to angsty alternative rock in the early 2000s.
