Metalcore outfit Speaking With Ghosts has teamed up with Lambgoat to bring their fans the full stream for their debut album, “Illuminated” a day before its release on Friday, 11/17.
Fans can get ready to hop on a not-so-metaphorical roller coaster, as the album delivers: from lead single and album opener “Woven in Gold”, that pulls you in by the collar, to the very last few notes of closer “Skywalker”, and everything in between, the band showcases how fun, groovy and heartfelt Metalcore can still be. Of course, adding to the mix vocalists such as Dana Willax (Kingdom of Giants) and Cory Brunnemann doesn’t hurt either. With topics that can hit close to home, soul-searching lyrics, and memories of better days that seem lost, but are not all gone for good, Speaking With Ghosts bring to the table a bouncy, heavy and honest album that’s bound to carve its niche into your heart.
The band members had to share the following, about the album: “Illuminated is a collection of memories and thoughts that brought us to where we are now. Something we really wanted to come across in all of the songs is the idea that we were made to endure. We wrote about a collection of hardships that we all have faced in to every song, and we hope it shows just how much we’ve overcome, and also how much people in general can get through. When we wrote about it, we took a look back and realized it’s all about the highs and lows that brought us closer as friends and helped us grow as people, and talks about them in a way that provides hope. Our mission now is to share this message and spread positivity to anyone who needs it.
Shine Light and Inspire.”
