Boston based neo-psychedelic rock band Ghosts of Jupiter will release their second full length album The Great Bright Horses on October 11th, 2016. The release will be accompanied by a run of live dates around New England, with appearances in Worcester MA, Cambridge MA, Portland ME, and Dover NH.
Formed in 2011 and led by singer/composer and multi-instrumentalist Nate Wilson best known as a founding member of Percy Hill, Ghosts of Jupiter achieved regional success with their self-titled debut release. The album was received with critical acclaim and was followed by live appearances with Blue Öyster Cult, moe., Robert Randolph and the Family Band, the Buffalo Killers and Dead Meadow. In 2012 the band teamed up with Boston’s Museum of Science to create Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience, a fully immersive music and animation film which recalled the laser-light show era of classic rock’s yesteryear. The show ran for over a year at the Charles Hayden Planetarium in Boston, and has since been shown at planetarium festivals in Auckland, New Zealand and Boulder, Colorado.
On their second independent full-length release The Great Bright Horses, Ghosts of Jupiter’s latest effort draws upon the experimental flute-prog of Traffic and King Crimson, the exploratory elements of Meddle-era Pink Floyd, and the modern psychedelia of Tame Impala, Midlake, and Dungen.
Glide Magazine is premiering “Boundless Time” – a song about the struggles to manage and control time in our daily lives and the anxieties of finding balance within modern life. Musically Ghosts of Jupiter are filling an essential void, putting guitars and heavy rhythms and mystical themes in the forefront. Facets of Cream, Sabbath, Genesis color the compositions, as Wilson provides ethereal vocals that paint the compositions with a modern psych flair. The live possibilities for Ghosts of Jupiter are limitless as the more imaginative 70’s influenced rock that doesn’t use the Grateful Dead directly as a reference point, can create a revival and scene upon its own.
