I Am Ghost is a post-hardcore band from Long Beach, California, formed in late 2004. They are signed to Epitaph Records.
I Am Ghost self-recorded a demo a few months after forming in 2004, for the sole purpose of booking shows locally. Previous to being signed the band gave away copies of their 6 track demo free of charge. Even before the band had played a single show, I Am Ghost had given away thousands of copies of their demo We Are Always Searching. Later, when I Am Ghost signed to Epitaph Records, they added 3 new tracks, artwork and, on October 25, 2005, re-released it as an EP.
I Am Ghost’s first full length album Lovers’ Requiem was released on October 10, 2006. Lead vocalist Steven Juliano explains, “It’s essentially a rock opera, but for hardcore or goth kids.”
I Am Ghost has also had several media mentions in alternative magazines, including a Metal Hammer Interview. They also have been interviewed for several websites, and had their EP reviewed in several UK music magazines. Not only have they had their EP reviewed in Metal Hammer, they’ve also been included in the publications’s Dead Hot 50 Band’s of 2006 List.Band members
