The Ghost Frequency formed in a bedroom in Spring 2005 and begun writing songs and recording demos on a 4 track recorder. Drummer Ben Chetwood joined the band in November of that year and the band began rehearsing for live shows in 2006.
After a year of writing and gigging, the band were signed up by City Rockers and begun work on their debut single ’Nightmare’ which was released as a limited edition 7” red vinyl in August 2007, with the accompanying video becoming a favourite on the MTV2 channel as well as on YouTube. The band receiving extensive coverage in the music press and online, including an article in NME’s coveted Radar Section.

The band toured the UK throughout the autumn, including joining Hadouken! on their UK tour as main support.

On December 10th 2007 The Ghost Frequency released their second single ’Never Before Have I Seen a Man Alive That Looked So Exactly Like a Skeleton’, again on limited edition 7” vinyl. The band recorded a suitable macabre video as a promo clip for the song, which received play on MTV2, NME TV, and E4 music among others, and was again popular on YouTube. The single was also popular on Radio 1 receiving the support of DJ Zane Lowe, and XFM’s John Kennedy among others.

In December of 2007, the single ’Nightmare’ was voted 2nd in NME’s club chart of the year, the band were also tipped in other magazines’ “Tips for 2008” section.

The band have remixed numerous acts including a remix of Outcry Collective’s single “New Franchise Mess”, This City’s “Kid’s with Fireworks”, and Death Ciggarettes “Bleed You Dry”, and are currently working on songs for their debut album set for release in 2009.

Support come from the brilliant Turbowolf, who are equal measures high energy speed-rock and computerized disco-hell fury, forming the most exciting and electrifying music your senses are likely to taste. Formed under the red light of a Bristol swingers club, the wolves have been smashing together their varied influences, everything from Japanese synth-pop to black metal, to create a sound that burns into the stratosphere on wings made of future noise. Turbowolf have established a reputation for behemoth godzilla-size guitar riffs, pounding double-kick rage, evil buzz keys, dancefloor-heavy bass and blood spitting vocals, to create the most explosive, high energy live shows, keeping those kids angry.
