My Own Ghost, a rock band from Luxembourg and the Finnish record label Secret Entertainment continue their cooperation. The second album named “Life On Standby” is released April 7th 2017. The album is produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Apocalyptica, Amorphis, etc..) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein, Sunrise Avenue, Bullet For My Valentine, etc.)
Their critically acclaimed debut album “Love Kills” was released in 2014 also by Secret Entertainment.
The band just released a music video from the album and it can be seen here:
The band comments the single, music video and tour:
“‘Life On Standby’ tells the story of quite a lot of people, who spend their life looking at life passing them by, but not living life to the fullest. Sometimes they try to break out, but that seems to get harder and harder the older they get and the more they get caught in everyday life.
The videoclip for ‘Life On Standby’ shows us a man, who’s lost all and every connection to reality, and who, little by little breaks out , which, in this case, is quite a painful process.
We’re really happy that we found in Francis Majerus an actor who’s able to transmit all these conflicting emotions and who was ready to engage himself fully into the storyline. Also, big thanks go out to Scumcrow Production s, who’ve done an amazing job.
My Own Ghost will embark on their 3rd UK Tour in order to promote the release of the first single from the new album. ‘Life On Standby’ will be presented to English audiences live on 4 dates.
This stint in the UK will be followed quickly by a return to Manchester and London as main support for Finnish singer Tarja Turunen on her Shadow Shows 2017. The tour will comprise 6 more dates in the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany and Switzerland. It is a great honour for My Own Ghost to support the former Nightwish singer on her tour.
What makes it even more special is that, after having found a home at Secret Entertainment and having Hiili Hiilesmaa and Svante Forsbäck working on the new album, touring with Tarja strengthens their ties with Finland and really makes it their second home. ”
