Ghost Hounds Announce Blues Album + Release New Single 'Smokestack Lightning'
Friday, April 8th blues-rock band Ghost Hounds announced their new blues album, You Broke Me, out May 13th via Maple House Records. Filled with both originals and covers, the 9-track album is raw yet polished, making listeners feel as though they were in the room while it was being recorded.
The band also released their new single, “Smokestack Lightning,” an interpretation of the original song by Howlin’ Wolf. Ghost Hounds bring a breath of fresh air to it, as the nature of the track holds an electric and infectious energy that’ll have you playing it on repeat.
The Pittsburgh, PA sextet comprised of Tre’ Nation (vocals), Johnny Baab (guitar), Thomas Tull (guitar), Bennett Miller (bass), Blaise Lanzetta (drums), and Joe Munroe (keys), conjure rock ‘n’ roll with a bluesy bent that’s fiery enough for your vinyl collection and fresh enough to light up any 21st century festival.
Ghost Hounds unleashed their full-length debut, Roses Are Black in 2019. Throughout that year, they opened for Bob Seger on his final tour and the Rolling Stones at FedEx Field in Washington D.C.
The group sharpened this signature style on their second full-length offering, A Little Calamity [Maple House Records], led by singles “Between Me and The Devil” and “Good Old Days,” which they played while opening for The Rolling Stones in the fall of 2021. Earlier this year they released their first single off You Broke Me, “Baby We’re Through.” The band will be playing Maple House Music + Arts Festival on May 21st, 2022 in Pittsburgh, PA alongside Jason Isbell + The 400 Unit, Black Pumas, Lake Street Dive, and many more.
