Illinois hardcore outfit Ghost Key debut a track from their forthcoming EP.
Ghost Key

In case you haven't heard, Peoria, IL hardcore act Ghost Key will release their No Sleep Records debut next month. Titled The Things I Am Not, the EP will be available on June 30. Circulated a few weeks ago, a press release for the EP stated, "Armed with an arsenal of ferocious, heavy riffs and attacking vocals, the group delivers a sonic assault on the senses with four songs that get straight to the point." That sounds like our kind of music.

Today we're pleased to premiere a track from the record titled "Dismantle." Here's what vocalist Austin O'Brien had to say about the song:

"Dismantle was written with the idea that it would feature our friend and an amazing poet, Keyoung. He's played a huge part in this band since the beginning and we love his work so it made sense to feature him. The songs content is about examining and understanding myself and my depression and the struggle of fighting back when it shows it's face."

Want to hear it? Good. Listen below. When you're done, we encourage you the pre-order The Things I Am Not.

These comments are so f*cked. Love everything about this song including the message behind it. I've been coming back to this site just to listen to this song for the past 6 hours. I've been listening to these guys for a while and I'm glad to finally see an honest band being able to spread what they stand for to larger audiences. Already preordered the hell out of this album, excited to hear it all come together. Definitely going to check out more from Keyoung, f*cking nailed it.
