The Ghost Next Door was formed in Berkeley, California by singer/guitarist Gary Wendt, a former student of guitar legend Joe Satriani.
Gary grew up in the infamous bay area music scene as a founding member of crossover legends Sacrilege BC and alt-metal champions Release. He spent a year recording and touring with Skinlab before embarking on the development of his own musical vehicle.
Emerging from the desire to marry the dark melancholy of 80s/90s alternative with the aggression and drive of Bay Area metal, The Ghost Next Door blends
styles and influences from punk to jazz, progressive to sadcore, and modern rock to thrash into meter-bending, riff-driven heaviness fueled by abrasively honest lyrics.
The Ghost Next Door gigs tirelessly out of a compulsion to create and perform their expressive take on modern metal.
Of the band and new record, Gary says, “We’re not interested in trends. A song is born from a single idea, but always mixed with some alternative sensibilities. Fusion, extreme, shoegaze, thrash – we write the unexpected.”
A Feast for the Sixth Sense is available on deluxe vinyl, CD and digital from Ripple Music and from the band on the road.
