Nuclear Blast Entertainment signs Ghost Bath
Official press release: Nuclear Blast Entertainment is pleased to announce the signing of depressive black metal sensations, Ghost Bath. Originally only available in Europe, Moonlover is now available digitally worldwide with an exclusive bonus track. A physical release in North America will follow in both CD and vinyl formats on June 10, 2016. "Moonlover is the first part of a trilogy of albums we plan to release," comments Ghost Bath mastermind, Nameless. "It encompasses the human experience and dwells within the minds of those who walk the earth. It deals with a longing for death and an eventual journey to realize the death instinct, Thanatos. A sort of numb sadness drenches this albums tracks; melancholy, tragedy, and despair all take hold of Moonlover at any given moment. "The bonus track, 'Ascension,' is a transitional point for the band. The title refers to a journey into the heavens, a hint to where the next installment of our album trilogy will go. We feel that it envelopes the sounds of Moonlover, while also leading the listener to what will come next." To celebrate Moonlover finally being available in North America, the band has released a music video for the track "Golden Number" here: "The music video for 'Golden Number' was birthed from a short story written by myself," continues Nameless. "It is an introduction into the band as a whole, revealing the definition of Ghost Bath; the act of committing suicide by drowning. Symbolism can be found throughout the video ritual, mainly, the symbolic and literal death of oneself as an ultimate solution to the unrelenting anxieties and stressors of waking life."
