We are hoping for a photo-shoot in the next couple weeks. Some big tasks have been accomplished and stirring excitement within the secluded Ghastly world lately. Ran some tests. Don’t wanna give too much, but it’s far too hard not to!

Additionally, we have scheduled some dates to wrap up ah hefty chunk of the foreverly-ongoing recording. Scattered across the Spring and Summer. It’s been a crazy long journey, with a lot of unforeseens, challenges, twists&turns, and whathaveyou’s. An uphill crawl.    .    .    .    .Can’t wait ta see the view.

We of course need ah ton of help. So please get in touch if you have energy-things to offer!

Here is a second flyer design I created along with Yeliz for our show in a couple days at Pianos.

Getting uber-excited for the ridiculously long process I have delved artistically into… will hopefully become the cover of our future album (secret, secret). We would also love to spread this video Matt has terrifically put together… us Ghastlies in our practice space preparing for this January 11th show. Loving his new camera!

Come out if you are in the city this Saturday night! We have been putting our energies into a lot of deep wells lately…. gold-digging dreaming.

Happy Holidays and grandly suchnesses to all. The year 2014 is pretty much beyond the idea of future in every sense. Never knew things could get that far.

We are stoked to be starting this new year off right! Playing a show in the early yawnings… January 11th at PIANOS in the Lower East Side of Manhattan.

We are elated to have been asked to perform as part of Knife Thrower’s Assistance(‘s) month long Pianos Residency. Thank you, Heidi. In addition, Matt will be dancin’ the double dutch… he plays with dear friends Bunny Punch.

Been listening to Depeche Mode and The Everly Brothers on absurd repeat these holiday days. Pretty sure that’s a concoction to keep Eggnog on its toes…

Please please, Bring your weird heads out, should be a rattlesnake. When is a Saturday evening on that lower strip not

 

 

Ghastly hitting the road again is clawing it’s way to the forefront and fast.

We leave in a couple weeks… Big news/// WE NEED A VAN!

If anyone has a van they could rent, or know of for us to rent that is somewhat reasonable and reliable, PLEASE, PLEASE, PLEASE CONTACT.  You can write us also at theghastlycitysleep@gmail.com

I don’t have mah baby BLU anymore….

Typical fashion. Disappeared again. Said to be in the well, but hiding in the barn. No prob Bob.

We have a lot of things to catch up on. Summertime river floatings, the world strangely keeps drifting. Here is the first in the set of newsies… Ghastly is coming out of our locust cicada sleep and will be playing shows again. It’s been an absurdistly long dormancy. So long, had to invent a word.

Lulling Screen

Hey everyone’

Nerve twitches, nerve nerve nerves & neural witches. We are going in next weekend to begin the recording process towards our future full-length album. We have been whittlin down the drum sections quite meticulously these weeks. Can’t wait to bring this into fruition.

As you probably know, we have also been working hard on other Ghastly arts as well as writing… offering you one-of-a-kind pieces of art and goods as a means to help us raise fundings for this upcoming recording. We have been attempting to raise around $1,200 for this first weekend. And, we must proudly say, it has been going quite amazingly well. We still have a ways to go, but your love and support has chipped that burden meltingly away. Thank you ya big lovely idiotheads… we wanna squeeze you.

Earlier this week Matt posted 2 more handmade copper etched bracelets for those good arms of yours. Please check them out. He has been slamming these beauties out lately… getting more and more “devil’s in the details” by the months.

I have also been working along with Yeliz Secerli in designing a limited edition run of “SONG TITLE” tote bags. We have printed, along with the to-die-for help of Michael Davis, a run of 100 bags. They are available in either black or white, and flaunt one of Ghastly’s new songs on the backs. We have printed 5 different titles:

“Bent, Clumsy 1, Lulling, Moonless, & Witchery”

Stark and goth and yesyes… These totes are available in either black or white, and are each a bit different & one-of-a-kind. As the numbers break down, there are only a handful of each idea. We are super stoked on all of the pieces we have created for this Art Fair Fundraiser so far. Hoping this next album will be far more melting on an ear brain emotional wave level experience.

ohhhhh we also would love to begin playing some shows again soon. Please get in touch with us.

Big Dumb Dark Red Hearts

Brandon / Ghastly.

Perhaps sooty chimney people creeped down your sleeping houses, and then we entered the year of thirteen, entered the year of the floor to skip. I hope terrifically we get our album out this year… will be perfectly appropriate.


Here’s a pieced-together video for you to work yourself giddy over and come to the brilliant conclusion, “it would be stellar to help Ghastly continue making art.” The video abstractly encapsulates the printing of the posters and candles we are offering for fundraising, as well as random footage from our last tour.

We need help and support from you amazing people. We are far adrift from raising an initial amount of money to begin recording. It’s looking like we will have to hold our horses a bit longer. We are terribly eager to get things in motion however.

Until then, we are still alive and awaiting the return of the horseback Mayaliens, or the upcoming rapture… whichever is to come first.

Please visit our bandcamp and spread the word to help:

Additionally, you can help by visiting Matt’s Etsy store. He will give a bit of sales from his site to aid us as well:
