Holler folk trio The Ghost of Paul Revere have released their third full-length studio album, Good At Losing Everything, TODAY. PRESS HERE to listen and HERE to watch the official video for lead single “Love At Your Convenience.” More info on limited edition merch bundles can be found HERE.
Aiming to create a sense of community with their music, The Ghost of Paul Revere examine life’s ebbs and flows through a distinct and dynamic distillation of folk, bluegrass, rock, and alternative music on the new album. The collection finds the Maine-based band firing on all cylinders as they explore themes of triumph, loss, satisfaction, heartbreak and love. Good At Losing Everything is fueled by shimmering piano, sweeping guitar, soaring harmonies and punctuated by unrestrained rock ambition. As the band widened their creative palette to expand their sound, this collection of songs attracts an even bigger community, while bringing the inner circle of longtime fans closer than ever. While this marks their third record with engineer and producer Jonathan Wyman, it would be their first collaboration with friend, producer, and co-writer Spencer Albee. The Maine trio [Max Davis (vocals, banjo), Sean McCarthy (vocals, bass) and Griffin Sherry (vocals, guitar)] also welcomed new members, drummer Chuck Gagne and multi-instrumentalist Jackson Kincheloe, as well as pianist Ben Cosgrove, into the fold to record.
Earlier this week, The Ghost of Paul Revere announced a special 2020 Virtual-Edition of their Ghostland Festival taking place this Labor Day Weekend live from The State Theatre in the band’s hometown of Portland, Maine. Dubbed, Almost Ghostland, each night will be completely unique and will find the band playing their new album in its entirety, taking requests, performing rarities and bringing out some special guests. Tickets are on sale now with the virtual festival streaming live each night via Nugs.net. Continuing Ghostland’s tradition of community spirit and love for their hometown, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to The State Theatre. Please visit www.ghostofpaulrevere.com for pricing and more information. This year’s in-person edition of Ghostland has been postponed to Labor Day Weekend, September 3rd and 4th, 2021, and will feature performances from The Ghost of Paul Revere, Deer Tick, The Mallett Brothers Band, and Bell Systems.
Since forming in 2011, the band has created a following that has propelled them from a local to a national level, tallying 15 million+ independent streams to date. After releasing the EP North in 2012, their signature style progressed over the course of two full-length albums- Believe (2014) and Monarch(2017)-and a pair of EPs-Field Notes, Vol. 1 (2015) and Field Notes, Vol. 2 (2019). They’ve performed alongside The Avett Brothers, Jason Isbell, The Revivalists, Bela Fleck, and The Infamous Stringdusters, sold out countless gigs, appeared at major festivals nationwide: Newport Folk, Austin City Limits, Winter WonderGrass, BottleRock Napa, Shaky Knees, Okeechobee, and Voodoo Music + Arts Experience, and garnered critical acclaim from the likes of Billboard, American Songwriter, Relix, Boston Globe, AXS, No Depression and The Boot, who appropriately dubbed them, “not quite bluegrass, not quite country, not quite rock ‘n’ roll, but kind of all three combined.” The band took home “Best in Maine” at the New England Music Awards twice, in 2015 and 2019. In 2019, their song, “Ballad Of The 20th Maine”, became the Official State Ballad of Maine after being passed unanimously by the Senate and House of Representatives and signed into law by Maine’s Governor, Janet Mills.
