Glory or Death Records stated, “We are very pleased to announce that Phantom Hound has signed with Glory or Death Records to release their new album »From Boom Town To Ghost Town«.

The power trio from Oakland began conceptualizing their second full-length album during the pandemic years, lockdown period, and what hit home in the years to follow..

“This record is about changing landscapes, uncertain home fronts, wealth and poverty, struggle and success. It’s about persistence at all costs one day, and accepting when things have come to an end on another. A story of the skeletons in our own backyard,” they explain.

The first single that will begin this journey until the official release of the album is »Gold Fever« which in the band’s words: “…is about greed and never having enough which seems to be a pretty common theme with today’s leaders.”

Pre-order / Early Bird Deal at (Wednesday June 19th)

Originally formed in 2013 as “Hound”. The original lineup consisted of Keith Hernandez on bass, Dominic Torres on drums, & Jake Navarra on guitar and vocals. The power trio quickly recorded and released »The Ether« EP in 2016 focusing on desert rock driven riffs and grungy blues licks. After several lineup changes in the following years the core lineup was ironed out with Jack Stiles on drums and Stephen Rogers on bass & keys. This new and refreshed lineup explored multiple tunings and influences ranging from doom metal, blues rock, and classic rock then officially expanding the name to “Phantom Hound” in 2018 and collectively focused on self-releasing their debut album »Mountain Pass« in 2020 via in-house record label Devil Blues Records with producer Chris Hughes.

While pushing »Mountain Pass« throughout the pandemic, the band went on tour at the first opportunity in the fall of 2021 on a Pacific Northwest run and followed up with another southwest tour fall of 2022 to push the release. In 2023 the band reunited with producer Chris Hughes & entered the studio to record their sophomore record. Taking influence from current day heavy psych lords such as All Them Witches, Elder, and King Buffalo and mixing them with core inspirations such as Alice In Chains, Soundgarden & Sleep; the new record experiments with a brand new heavy psych sound, bolstered backing vocals, guitar harmonies, synthesizers, and an endless onslaught of massive hooks the band has become known for. The Oakland, California power trio will be releasing their sophomore record »From Boom Town To Ghost Town« on Glory or Death Records in September of 2024.

Phantom Hound has supported such acts as Belzebong, Greenbeard, Hippie Death Cult, Spirit Mother, 16, Holy Grove, Disastroid, Kadabra, Serial Hawk, Three Towers & High Tone Son Of A Bitch.
