    Default Give up the Ghost aka "American Nightmare" is back!!!

    I totally didn't see this coming! One of my favorite shows I went back in 2002 was Glassjaw/American Nightmare/Blood Brothers/Coheed and Cambria....anyone remember that tour? How can you forget Hellfest in Syracuse back in the day.

    AN > Cold Cave!

    GIVE UP THE GHOST (aka American Nightmare) Plan Exclusive Boston and Los Angeles Shows, and Vinyl Reissues

    FYF Fest, The Kenmore Agency, and Deathwish are proud to present two exclusive performances from Give Up The Ghost (American Nightmare).

    Boston (Revere) MA: Thursday, December 29th @ Wonderland Ballroom
    Los Angeles CA: Saturday December 31st @ A Secret Location


    These are the first Give Up The Ghost shows since their sudden hiatus taken almost eight years ago. The line-up will feature the definitive line-up of Wesley Eisold, Timothy Cossar, Joshua Holden, Brian Masek, and Alex Garcia-Rivera.

    The shows are in celebration of the reissue of both Background Music and We're Down Til We're Underground on vinyl via Deathwish (preorder it). Members of Give Up the Ghost went on to form bands like Cold Cave, Some Girls, All Pigs Must Die, Bars, The Hope Conspiracy, and many, many, more.

    I got that email too and I actually cannot believe that band was that popular even back then. I used to listen to a bunch of those bands, but AN was always a little too hardcore for me. But yeah, definitely don't understand the hype now.

    I like them btw, I saw them back in the day. More of ''there doesn't need to be a thread for the 4 people that care about them on the board.''

    Yup. Brand new eBay accounts people set up at the library placing bids like that are always the best. Surprised people with 300+ transactions are putting in those bids too. Fun way to ruin your feedback.

    Ryan Gosling is friends with Sean from FYF. I imagine that's why he's there.

    Psh, FYF won't ever pull a repeat, what kind of organization do you think they are? The kind that has Crystal Antlers play every show ever?
