In a recent article from Billboard, writer Gary Graff describes the return of Ghost Hounds, leading up to the release of their new album, Roses Are Black.
“Ghost Hounds could not have asked for a more auspicious return to active duty this year.
The Pittsburgh-based rock quintet has been busy, and visible, leading up to the Nov. 5 release of Roses Are Black…. which ends a 10-year gap between albums. Ghost Hounds opened for the Rolling Stones during July in Washington, D.C. and recently played several dates supporting ZZ Top and Bob Seger & the Silver Bullet Band. “When you get a chance to play not only with icons but whose songs you grew up with and were inspired by, it truly is a privilege,” Ghost Hounds guitarist and founder Thomas Tull tells Billboard. “It really is a blast.”
Tull wrote and produced Roses Are Black with singer-songwriter David Grissom (John Mellencamp, Dixie Chicks, Joe Ely) and Kevin Rowe (Buddy Guy, Jonny Lang, Kenny Wayne Shepherd), with legendary engineer Eddie Kramer (Led Zeppelin, Jimi Hendrix) also on board. The set runs the gamut, from Stones-style rockers to country-flavored ballads, along with a cover of Cliff Richard’s “Devil Woman.””
It’s finally here – our brand new album ‘Roses Are Black’ is out now on iTunes, Spotify, Amazon, and all streaming services.
Rose Are Black 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. This album was also brought to life with the help of producing and songwriting partners David Grissom and Kevin Bowe and six-time Grammy Award-winning producer, engineer and mixer Vance Powell (Chris Stapleton, The White Stripes, Danger Mouse, Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon).
Audiences across the US have experienced energizing live performances of singles off the Roses Are Black album following a tour of opening shows for rock legends such as the Rolling Stones, ZZ Top, and Bob Seger. We’re so excited for fans everywhere to experience the full album for themselves.
