Meet Ghost Community, prog's newest supergroup
Five seasoned prog veterans came together to form Ghost Community, and long-awaited debut album Cycle Of Life has finally dropped
Ghost Community may be a relatively new band on the scene, having formed in 2015, but their line-up boasts five seasoned prog veterans who have played in the likes of Also Eden and The Reasoning, and it was the intimacy of the progressive music scene that brought the group together.
“You know how small this scene is, and you’re always bumping into people as you’re going along,” Ghost Community bassist Matthew Cohen explains. “So sometimes when you’re sat down after a gig or whatever, you get a sense that the people you’re talking to are good people, and that’s all it needs. Simplicity is the key to life.”
Cohen attests that the band members of Ghost Community possess a strong bond, both musically and personally. “John Paul [Vaughan, lead vocals] was in a band with me 18 years ago, and when he got in touch with me a year and a half ago, it was like we’d never been apart,” he recalls.
