Feral Ghost has announced the release of a brand new studio single, “Chase The Sun.”
The song is representative of the band’s distinctive blend of rock music. On the one hand, “Chase The Sun” has a throwback sound, which might remind the audience of yesteryear’s rock icons such as Bryan Adams, The Who, Def Leppard, Cheap Trick and Bon Jovi. On the other, the production is crisp, and the band’s fresh energy endow the music with a modern vibe. The open guitar chords that kick off the arrangement are big, ambitious, the size of a massive arena. The clean, chorus-laden arpeggios are blissfully melodic, providing ambiance and texture for the vocals to unfold. The rhythm section is just as powerful, and the vocals are uplifting, with layered harmonies in the hooks. “Chase The Sun” is energetic and vibrant, bringing a positive message to the audience. The dynamics of the song are astonishing, and there is even room for a melodic, mellow outro that will take the audience someplace else!

Feral Ghost’s blend of classic songwriting, layered harmonies and accomplished musicianship, combined with memorable melodies and sharp modern production, has helped the band establish a unique musical voice.
The London-based group’s debut album A Gathering Storm in 2014 was immediately singled out by reviewers and radio stations for its consistently strong melodies, and stadium sized hooks.
The album was also nominated for CD of the year by Indie Music Digest, which called it “an impressive debut statement that clearly proves this band is a force to be reckoned with in UK and beyond”.
Feral Ghost’s classic melodic sensibilities and guitar driven sound have brought comparisons with the likes of Fleetwood Mac, the Eagles and Pink Floyd, as well as the indie pop and rock sounds of Coldplay and Snow Patrol. But the 6-piece band’s blend of thoughtful lyrics, heartfelt vocals and infectious energy are entirely its own.
Over the next couple of years, subsequent singles This Is Life and Could This Be Love went on to reach No.3 and No.7 in the Official European Independent Music Chart, as well as charting strongly in the US.
During this time Feral Ghost consolidated their success with a string of concerts across the UK, including festivals and other established music venues. As a result, the group gained a swathe of new loyal followers by showcasing how well their emotionally powerful combination of up-tempo feel-good tunes and slow burn anthems translated to live performances.
Towards the end of 2018, the band went back into the studio to record a follow up album. But unforeseen personal circumstances, followed by the impact of the Covid-19 pandemic in 2020, meant that new music has taken longer than anticipated. But now, after using this time to put the full force of their creativity into a new body of work, Feral Ghost are back with a stunning new full length album, Speed of Light, due to be released in March 2021.
Reflecting the turbulent and uncertain times of its creation, the album contains an incredible collection of 12 songs that span themes ranging from fear and loss to love and hope. Taking the band’s complex multi layered sound and sophisticated arrangements to a new level, while never straying from clarity of purpose and honesty of emotion, Speed of Light is Feral Ghost’s most coherent, uncompromising and beautiful artistic statement so far.
