NEW ALBUM “ANTI-ICON” OUT NOW
“redefining punk and creating a new wave of industrial music”
“like Nine Inch Nails and Three 6 Mafia albums thrown in a meat grinder”
“very cutting-edge: a new breed of performer with the future of heavy music in his hands“
“Ghostemane’s instincts have been right all along”
Today, Ghostemane shares a new video for “Hydrochloride,” taken from his latest album ANTI-ICON. The visual is directed by Poppy and arrives on the heels of their joint cover on Alternative Press. The video is also the third from the album following “AI” and “Lazaretto,” which Kerrang! described as a “genre-blending banger.”
The culmination of all of Ghostemane’s musical mutations, ANTI-ICON is the most personal sonic statement he’s been building towards his entire career. The project is the follow-up to his 2018 album N/O/I/S/E and arrives after his cover stories for Kerrang!, 1883 Magazine, and the aforementioned Alternative Press. In tandem with the release of ANTI-ICON, Ghostemane also released new merch, including the first commercially available version of his comic book, Dr. Nihil and The Tremendous Blunder, available here now.
Eric Ghoste has been releasing music as Ghostemane since 2014. As the project’s sole architect, Ghoste has created a singular canon of extreme music, incorporating elements of industrial, hardcore, acoustic, southern “phonk” rap, and experimental genres. With every album, Ghoste has grown as a producer, writer, and performer, blending his influences with increasing fluidity and ambition. His 2018 album N/O/I/S/E marked his most aggressive, advanced work yet, setting the table for his most anticipated album to date: ANTI-ICON.
Watch “Hydrochloride,” listen to ANTI-ICON and purchase new merch above, see album details below and stay tuned for more from Ghostemane coming soon.
