RELEASE DETAILS:

The album was tape-recorded in Montreal at Hotel2Tango by Howard Bilerman (Arcade Fire, Silver Mt. Zion) with additional production work from Efrim Menuck (Godspeed You! Black Emperor, Silver Mt. Zion) and guest strings from Thierry Amar and Jessica Moss.

This Culture of Background Noise sees the band returning to their roots – stripped down guitar, bass and drums. Working with developed melodies, raw textures, and established composition, Because of Ghosts have created a mature work, further distinguishing themselves as a unique force in the post-rock genre

REVIEWS:

“Looks like we’ve found our Australian album of the year” Drum Media

“…the songs emerge out of the background noise at just the right moment…to converge on each other and create works of immaculate art. Forget tuning out the background noise – this album leads me to embrace it. And how beautiful it is!” The Silent Ballet

“Because of Ghosts need not fear the background noise. They could never write accompanying music – their notes speak louder than words” Oyster Magazine

“It’s a triumph…They’ve gone straight to the top” Inpress
