Danny Coy (Shadows Chasing Ghosts)
Danny is the drummer in Shadows Chasing Ghosts.
Since their inception in 2008, London’s SHADOWS CHASING GHOSTS have been plotting a revolution, and with their mix of razor sharp guitar work and infectious, sing along melodies attracting more fans than you can shake a stick at, the cause is growing stronger by the day.
The band have worked hard to establish themselves, and have achieved a lot in 2 short years. Without backing or a label, they have toured the UK and Europe several times and more recently completed a 5 week tour of Australia, all off their own backs.
During this time they have played headline shows to sold out, 450+ venues and were rated highly enough to be billed as main support to established acts such as Finch, Haste the Day, Oh Sleeper and Blessed by a Broken Heart.
The band completely sold out the first pressing of self released E.P (Never Get a Wolf’s Attention by Pulling it’s Tail), and followed that success by again selling out of first single ‘Searchlights’ which was released by Small Town Records in 2009. This track was immediately named Radio 1 Rock show ‘Track of the Week’ by Daniel P Carter.
The band has just completed work on a full length record which was recorded and mixed by reputed producer John Mitchell at Outhouse Studios (Architects, Enter Shikari, You Me at Six, Funeral for a Friend, KIGH…). The album is set for release in the Summer of 2010 via Small Town Records.
So far their 2010 schedule already includes festivals in Belgium (RioRock & Blackstar Fest), an April tour with ‘Oh Sleeper’ & ‘Haste the Day’ and a June stint with US post hardcore outfit ‘Vanna’.
As a result of all this, SCG have not only won over an audience once skeptical of ‘another UK screamo band’ but have secured themselves as a fixture on the UK touring scene and marked themselves firmly out, amongst fierce competition, as ones to watch in coming years.
