Ghost King was formed by frontman Carter McNeil, a New York City native who spent his formative years in Texas, before returning to the city to pursue music. Shortly after his arrival, McNeil began touring with Spires as a drummer, opening up for the UK band, Temples.

With no prior songwriting experience and countless sleepless nights playing guitar, McNeil conjured up Ghost King’s debut album, Bones with the original 3-piece lineup. After the album release the band moved to Brooklyn, where Daniel Sweeney joined on drums.

On their upcoming sophomore album, Dunbar Swamp (due early 2019), Ghost King radiates confidence with their first single “Slither”, a heavy psychedelic-fueled garage track that will leave you dizzy from its adrenaline rush. Balancing out their louder tracks, the band also dives head first into their own mind, exploring introverted paranoid thoughts from another dimension. Joined by their newest members, Noga Davidson on bass and Pete Spengemen on guitar, the band has been seen playing with fellow psychonauts such as L.A. Witch, ORB (AUS) and Acid Dad.
