After the split of Boston’s Therefore I Am (ohhhhhh), two of its members started a new band called Ghost Thrower (woohoo!). They released an EP called “Get Miserable” pretty fast and now even have their first full-length out already as well. It’s called “10 Songs” and it comes with the 5 songs from the EP and 5 others from 2011's “...Has A One That Got Away” EP, which had previously only been available digitally. Put together that rings up to 10 songs.

Expect to hear plenty of not so cheerful post-hardcore that rocks like a rawer version of Fear Before. Not too shabby. The intro of “Prima And Sinatra” reminded me just a bit too much of Brand New’s “Okay I Believe You, But My Tommy Gun Don’t” but other than that it’s a pretty solid song as well.

The only downside with “10 Songs” is that it’s so pitch-black that you are left feeling kinda depressed yourself.

Lacking the talent to actually play in a band, Tom decided he would write about bands instead. Turns out his writing skills are mediocre at best as well.
