Just one month on from their highly-anticipated return to the stage, The Ghost Inside have teased fans with the promise of a new record.

Back in 2015, the members of The Ghost Inside were struck by tragedy, with their tour bus being involved in a serious head-on crash. While the drivers of the vehicles died, some of the band’s members were hospitalised in critical condition, with drummer Andrew Tkaczyk losing a leg in the process.

For the next couple of years, the future of The Ghost Inside was left unclear, with the band making (and ultimately cancelling) plans to tour as part of the 2017 Warped Tour, and upgrading guitarist Chris Davis to a full-time member.

In early 2018 though, the band held their first practice session since the accident, assuring fans “there is a future” for the band, but noting they “still aren’t sure exactly what it looks like”.

After sharing some teasers of new music earlier this year, The Ghost Inside formally made their return to the live stage last month, performing a sold-out performance at Los Angeles venue The Shrine. Now, it looks like new music is finally on the way.

Taking to social media over the weekend, The Ghost Inside shared an image of the band in the studio, noting it was an update into the status of album #5.

While it’s currently been almost five years since the release of 2014’s Dear Youth, the band seem to have teamed up with A Day To Remember frontman Jeremy McKinnon for production duties once again, tagging both him and Fit For An Autopsy’s Will Putney in their post.

Although no further details about the band’s new record was shared, it does appear that when it finally sees the light of day, it will mark the band’s third album released through Epitaph Records.

At this stage, it looks like we’ll have to wait and see what the future brings, but fans are undoubtedly happy to see that the band are making positive steps towards the future they almost missed out on.
