Antighost’s latest record “All My Friends Dig Graves” marks the band’s boldest release to date. Capturing high-energy performances through their unique raw sound, the 13 songs prove to be the the band’s best work yet. With a dark variety of subject matter, “All My Friends Dig Graves” finds Antighost stepping deeper into their post-punk roots while solidifying their intense climactic sound, ushering in a new era of grunge and emo. Praised for their live presence and lyrical content, Antighost continue to prove that if rock and roll is dead, it’s phantom is twice as loud.
If you haven’t heard Antighost’s new EP, “Animal Panic!” pick any song and you’ll be listening to the remaining tracks right after. The album opener, “Gang of Hounds,” sets the standard and Antighost delivers again and again. As a grunge/emo/punk/alternative rock band, even the scream/singing of vocalist Sean Shepard comes off as a pleasant addition to these songs. Catch the beauty and power of that in the track “I Can’t Feel the Sun,” with cascading undertones that explode into what is best explained simply as a straight-up good song. And the album’s single, “Sober,” gives listeners the best of Shepard, bassist Joe Bida and drummer Dylan Vanderson: The band melds sonic elements to create a powerful attack that builds to a pleasing crescendo. The six-song EP is just long enough to prove Antighost’s unquestionable mettle and just short enough to make listeners eager to catch a live show. Where else could you get away with screaming, “I don’t want to go outside because I hate everyone”? – Olivia Menchaca Local Spins
"A well-rounded album that exudes a sense of completeness, “Creatures” expands beyond its roots in grunge and punk to incorporate ambient textures while driving home strong themes." -Schyler Perkins, Local Spins
"Melodic punk just took a turn for the best, with Antighost and their new release of 'Creatures.' With a fantastic blend of styles and elements of different genres, this album made quite the impression at fifteen tracks long. I really enjoyed the diversity of tracks here as well as a good chunk of them being acoustic tracks (or combining that element) and the rest more upbeat and catchy rhythm driven songs…I’d definitely give this [album] a 9/10." -LD, Stencil Magazine
"I typically only play one song per band on the 'Local Lowdown' but this EP is so good, I'm going to play the entire thing from start to finish." -Lynn Koon, WRIF
"Antighost’s debut EP, 'Wolves & Sheep,' is an impressive collection of meaningful songs, accompanied by some classic punk rock staples and rhythms." -Kray Freestone, The Musical Blender Blog
