Holy Ghost! spent the better part of 2010 on the road with the likes of LCD Soundsystem and Chromeo. In 2011, they shifted into high gear, with the release of their eponymous debut LP in April on DFA Records, thrilling the longtime fans of their ubiquitous singles and remixes. Album tracks like “Do It Again”, “Wait & See”, and most recently “Some Children” (feat. Michael McDonald) have been mainstays on the blogosphere and probably every party you went to over the last 6 months.
Now Holy Ghost! are releasing their latest single, crowd favorite “Hold My Breath” co-written with Austrian DJ buddy Wolfram. Out October 17, the single EP will feature remixes from Tiger & Woods, Cosmic Kids & Falty DL. There is also an accompanying music video, which falls in line with their ever-growing catalogue of stellar videos. Collaborating again with director and close friend Ben Fries (read Pitchfork’s Director's Cut of "Wait & See") this latest video is a funny and sentimental look into the personal lives of Nick Millhiser and Alex Frankel. You can check out the video premiere on RollingStone.com!
After opening for the aforementioned Chromeo and LCD Soundystem tours last year and also supporting Cut Copy this spring, the band are now heading out on their first ever headline tour in the US. They are being joined on the road by Jessica 6, Midnight Magic and Eli Escobar on various dates, and everything kicks off right before Halloween with an already sold-out show at Bowery Ballroom.
