ABOUT THIS ALBUM


Album Notes
Biography
(日本語が以下に載っています)
Ghost of Matsubara (GoM) is the brainchild of singer/guitarist Tom Fallon. Tom met drummer Mike Bagley in 2005 shortly after arriving in Japan. Both were working busily on separate musical projects, but vowed to make something happen when the time was right. Tak Kudo joined the ranks on bass in the April of 2011.

“Ghost of Matsubara” was chosen as a band name back in 2008 when singer/guitarist Tom Fallon was living in a neighborhood called “Matsubara-chome”. Tom found himself aimlessly drifting through the quiet, dark streets at night, and as a laugh, initially for his YouTube channel’s handle, he coined the name “Ghost of Matsubara”.

As of October 2012, GoM has debuted their first major independent release, From the Ashes Not Yet Cold. It has been embraced with rave reviews internationally, spanning not only from their home base in Japan, but reaching across the globe to American, Finland, Australia, Brazil, Germany, Canada, and England! Local Nagoya magazine, NagMag, even featured this rocking power trio on the cover over their November 2012 issue with a two-page story and album review inside.

GoM’s 2012 debut follows an EP they released in December 2010, Live From A Coma, with former bass guitarist Keiko Tsuchiya. This earlier release and GoM’s “From the Ashes Not Yet Cold” are currently available on CDBaby, iTunes, and Amazon.

The band is currently playing shows throughout Tokyo, Nagoya, and Osaka. In between live performances they have been in the studio hungrily composing intense new material for their next spine tingling album.

Ghost of Matsubara (以下GoM) は、2009年に名古屋在住のシンガーソングライター/ギタリストであるTom Fallonが、FujiRock出演経験もある元Sushi Cabaret ClubのドラマーであったMike Bagleyと、当時若干19歳であったベーシストKeikoと共に開始したバンドプロジェクトである。

2010年12月、1stシングル「Live From A Coma」を発表、アマゾン/iTunes Storeにてハード・ソフトコピー両方面での配信を開始する。東海エリアを中心に精力的に活動し、地元名古屋で国籍を問わず幅広いファン層を獲得してきた。巨大SNS、Facebookでのフォロワー数は、名古屋のインディーズバンドとしては異例の約3,300 (2012年10月現在)に上っており、ローカルエリア外のファンベースは世界各国に及ぶ。また自身のYouTube用発信チャンネル「http://www.youtube.com/user/ghostofmatsubara」では、GoMだけでなく日本そのものに憧れる外国人ファンに対して日本文化の情報を発信するなど、バンドを通した国際交流なども積極的に行っており、GoMの個性や国際性を際立たせるものとなっている。

Keiko脱退後、翌年春に元Sonicland Peace MakersのベーシストtAkが正式加入。半年近くの準備期間を経て、再びライブ活動を開始。2012年夏には本格的にアルバム制作に着手する。2012年10月、1stフルアルバム「From the Ashes Not Yet Cold」を発表。アルバムリリース記念の東名阪ツアーを敢行し、これを皮切りにGoMの制作/ライブ活動を加速させ現在に至っている。
Description
パンクスやエモのエッセンスをメロディアス且つポップにまとめた音楽性に、詩情的な歌詞を併せ持つプログレッシブ・インディーロック。

Ghost of Matsubara is progressive indie rock with overtones of melodic punk and subtle hints of emo. Highs, lows, and everything in between; a poetic hurricane.
Band Interests
Things we find interesting I guess.... Oh! And, um... Space!!! Well, Tom's like super interested in outer space... ^.^v たぶん彼は宇宙人かも知れない。。。
