On the heels of an opening performance with the Rolling Stones this summer, and the announcement of upcoming performances with ZZ Top and Bob Seger, Ghost Hounds have announced the details of ‘Roses Are Black,’ their new album coming out November 5, 2019.  The album features guest appearances by Slash, Kenny Aronoff, Reese Wynans, and Michael Rhodes, alongside producing and songwriting partners David Grissom and Kevin Bowe. The album was mixed by six-time Grammy Award-winning producer Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, The White Stripes, Danger Mouse, Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon) and engineered by Eddie Kramer (Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin).

Ghost Hounds is a rock ‘n’ roll band at a time when the world needs more of them. The band’s new album recalls the universal appeal of rock’s ‘70s heyday, but with a fresh, crackling energy crafted by founder and guitarist Thomas Tull, and voiced with fluid power by vocalist Tre’ Nation. The band’s gritty sound reflects the blue-collar heritage of its hometown of Pittsburgh; a versatile outfit whose music fits in an Iron City barroom or a stadium — such as the one in Maryland where Ghost Hounds opened for the Rolling Stones in July. There’s plenty of energy and rock ‘n’ roll abandon, along with tight playing and intricate songcraft. 

“I think it’s a direct reflection of my own eclectic music tastes,” Tull says. “The Rolling Stones are my favorite band of all time, so a lot of this is inspired by the Stones. They fell in love with American blues. They have great country songs. Those things all appealed to me. Having all those different voices is important, and that’s what I want our band to have too.”

‘Roses Are Black’ certainly celebrates that diversity across its 12 tracks “Bad News” spreads the good word of Ghost Hounds’ return by throttling up into some 12-bar fury, echoed later on in “Push That Rock Up the Hill” and “We Roll Hard.” “Skin in the Game” reflects that Stones love Tull speaks of, while “Black Rose” and “Fire Under Water” are classic rock tunes and “Almost Loved You” would sound at home in Nashville’s Bluebird Cafe. The group’s softer and soulful side is just as potent on tracks such as “When Your Shadow Touches Mine,” “Til It’s Gone” and “Second Time Around,” and Ghost Hounds’ treatment of “Devil Woman” shoots the Cliff Richards’ original through with high-test adrenaline, including biting guitar solos.

“I missed music,” Tull explains. “I missed writing. I missed performing. I missed the camaraderie of a band. I decided this was something I really wanted to do.”

As the release of ‘Roses Are Black’ approaches, Ghost Hounds’ lineup – Tull, guitarist Johnny Baab, bassist Bennett Miller, drummer Blaise Lanzetta and powerhouse vocalist Tre Nation – are looking forward to making their case back on the road. “All of these songs to me just come alive in the band’s performance,” Tull says. “We tracked every song live, and we wanted this to be, in some ways, an old-fashioned record, where you can listen to the record and then go hear the band and say, ‘Yeah, that’s the song I heard.’ There’s nothing we can’t pull off live.”

Rockers of Ghost Hounds To Open For ZZ Top This Fall

Ghost Hounds Band BW

Ghost Hounds, the rock group who garnered attention while opening for The Rolling Stones earlier this year, have been announced as the opening act for ZZ Top’s 50th Anniversary Tour this fall.

The Pittsburgh-based band will provide support on dates kicking-off on October 22 in Melbourne, Florida, followed by gigs in cities like Bethlehem, Erie, and Tallahassee. They’ll appear at the MGM National Harbor in Oxon Hill, Maryland, as well as Foxwoods Resort Casino in Connecticut and Wings Event Center in Missouri. The group, founded by guitarist Thomas Tull, will be touring in support of their forthcoming record, Roses Are Black. Tull will be take the stage with a new lineup including guitarist Johnny Baab, bassist Bennett Miller, drummer Blaise Lanzetta, and vocalist Tre Nation.

While Ghost Hounds broke up years ago for Tull to focus on Legendary Entertainment’s round of hit films like “Jurassic World,” “Straight Outta Compton,” and “The Hangover,” as well as other ventures, he decided that after seling Legendary in 2016, he was ready to “push that old rock (and roll) back up the hill.”

“I missed music,” Tull said in a press release. “I missed writing. I missed performing. I missed the camaraderie of a band. I decided this was something I really wanted to do.”

He described these new songs as a part of an “old-fashioned record, where you can listen to the record and then go hear the band and say, ‘Yeah, that’s the song I heard,’” noting that “there’s nothing we can’t pull off live.”

ZZ Top were slated to kick-off their tour later this month, but the band’s drummer, Frank Beard, was diagnosed with pneumonia and was told to rest by doctors. The first four dates of their tour have been called-off; shows will pick-up on August 21 in Woodinville, Washington. Check out the group’s full round of tour dates below, and those with Ghost Hounds.

We performed the first day of the festival alongside other acts like Gavin DeGraw, The Expendables, and Roots of Creation. All proceeds from the event were donated to the Ovarian Cancer Research Alliance to help support finding a cure for ovarian cancer, advocating for patients, and providing support for survivors. Thank you to those who came out to this charity event and helped support a great cause. Here are some highlights from the show.
