2 mins read

Los Angeles hardcore band THE GHOST INSIDE will release their fourth album called “Dear Youth” on November 17 on Epitaph Records. The album was co-produced by Jeremy McKinnon and Andrew Wade. Watch the band’s new video for the track “Dear Youth (Day 52)” now, featuring fan-submitted footage below. This is the second track that the band have shared from the new album. The first track Avalanchepremiered last week and can be heard at this location.

Front man Jonathan Vigil explains the album concept in a letter written to his younger self:

Dear Youth,

I’m writing to you now because it seems I’ve lost my way. I can’t pinpoint exactly when it started, but I know that it’s not like it was before. I’ve realized the more time that passes, the more we lose touch. It’s starting to feel like all I ever do now is lose touch with things. But not you, I never wanted to lose you.

I wish I had something to blame it all on, but I don’t. One day I was there and the next I was here. As if I was dreaming and suddenly woken up. These days I’m always wondering if what I’ve done is enough. It’s getting harder and harder for me to shake this feeling of stagnance.

So old friend I’m writing to ask you what it feels like to have the whole world in your hand? Where we could set out and do anything that we imagined. Endless possibilities way before complacence set in. To be honest with you, I’ve forgotten what that all feels like. There was a wonder about us that has long since faded. That sense of excitement, I miss it.

Dear youth, will you show me again? I need to be reminded of those times, back before this began…

– xx
