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.””
