Dead Ghosts originally formed in late 2008 in the basement of Drew and Michael Wilky’s parent’s house in Vancouver, Canada with friend Bryan Nicol. Influenced by Pebbles comps and girl group records, they began writing and recording, addding bassist Maurizo Chiumento not long after.
It didn’t take long for blogs and labels around the world to take notice, writing and praising about their songs uploaded to Myspace. In less than a year their first single was released, “What To Do”, a catchy doo wop jingle that got the ball rolling. Soon after labels from France, Italy, and the US started putting out single after single for the band, somewhere around seven singles in a year! Leading up to their first full length put out on Florida’s Dying in 2011. The S/T LP, a mix of twang balladry soul stompers was a hit with the garage rock community from all over, which sold out and was repressed twice.
They have toured the USA, Canada, and Europe with such acts as: King Khan & BBQ, Thee Oh Sees, and Nobunny to name a few. They boys feverishly worked on their second full length that was released by Burger Records in Spring of 2013.
