Former Ghosts is the new band from Freddy Rupert, who had a project called This Song is a Mess but So Am I, with help from Jamie Stewart of Xiu Xiu and Zola Jesus. The song is going to draw lots and lot of comparisons to Joy Division, but it’s more than that. Upset the Rhythm, the label releasing their debut album Fleurs, said that the album is “dense, not just with sound but emotion – an album so heavy, that the disk itself almost seems to weigh five pounds.” You can really hear it in these tracks. It’s going to be a good album for winter.
Fleurs is out October 20. They are also currently on tour, check their Myspace for tourdates.
