Dead Ghosts are a band from Vancouver, British Columbia, Canada, that play a soulful yet stripped-down mix of garage rock, first-generation rockabilly, punk, and lo-fi noise. The group staked their claim with their self-titled 2010 debut album, conjuring a deliberately primitive and swampy sound with a psychedelic undertow, but they hit their creative stride with the reverb-soaked 2015 LP Love and Death and All the Rest, while adding keyboards to the mix for 2020’s Automatic Changer.
Longtime friends guitarist Drew Wilkinson and singer/guitarist Bryan Nicol began performing together while they were both on the same T-ball team as youngsters, then founded Dead Ghosts in 2007. Years later, they decided to take rock & roll more seriously, enlisting Drew’s brother Mike Wilkinson on drums and bassist Maurizio “Moe” Chiumento through an online classified post. Dead Ghosts released their first single, “What to Do” b/w “God Only Knows,” through Milk n’ Herpes Records in 2008, after establishing themselves as a live act at home. They became a growing attraction in Toronto and launched a few regional tours while releasing several more singles through various independent labels.
In 2010, Dead Ghosts released their debut full-length album, a self-titled long-player on Florida’s Dying Records; the same year, Psychic Lunch Records released Live Tapes, a collection of live recordings. After further touring, the band recorded their second album, Can’t Get No, in 2013, which was released in the United States by Burger Records, a well-known independent label. While Dead Ghosts hinted that Can’t Get No might be their last album, the band found a new lease of life and released Love and Death and All the Rest in 2015. With the addition of Craig Pettman on keyboards, Dead Ghosts resurfaced in 2020 with the album Automatic Changer, expanding to a quintet.
