In an age when countless bands are vying for attention, you must be doing something right to notch up almost 400,000 hits on Youtube.
And since their inception in 2008 that’s what London’s Shadows Chasing Ghosts have done - and they’re set to take their energetic show to the Vault this Saturday.
Their brand of polished, catchy emo would go down well with fans of bands like Taking Back Sunday and Funeral for a Friend, and their mix of razor-sharp guitar work and anthemic melodies has seen them attracting more and more devotees to the band.
In 2008 SCG started the buzz with their self released EP, Never Get a Wolf’s Attention By Pulling On Its Tail, and followed that in 2009 with their first release on Small Town Records, Searchlights, which led to their debut album, The Golden Ratio, which was recorded at Outhouse Studios by legendary producer John Mitchell (Architects, Enter Shikari You Me At Six, Funeral For A Friend). The band returned to Outhouse in April to record their second full-length release, Lessons.
SCG has embraced the true DIY work ethic, and achieved an amazing amount in four short years. They have got in the van and lived on the road, from numerous lengthy UK and European tours to a run of Australian dates.
They have played headline shows to sold out venues up and down the country and were rated highly enough to share the stage with bands such as Bury Tomorrow, While She Sleeps, Finch, Blessed By a Broken Heart, Glamour Of The Kill and Polar.
Support on the night will come from Hildamay, Urma Sellinger and Scream Blue Murder. To find out more search for Vault on Facebook.
