Despite breaking up last year, Cambridge's The Tupolev Ghost is able to live on posthumously in this downloadable EP. Thanks to Big Scary Monsters for providing the download. You can buy this on CD from BSM here. http://www.bsmrocks.com/main.html
For fans of post-hardcore bands like On The Might of Princes, Bridge & Tunnel, Million Dead and At The Drive In.
"Newly signed to Big Scary Monsters, The Tupolev Ghost return after recent line up changes with a self titled mini album. Twisting and turning, the 4-piece create a ferocious beast, filled to the brim with vicious guitars and snarling vocals. Obvious comparisons can be made with other post-hardcore bands but the band’s musical ambition does not cease there and they appear keen to experiment with their sound. ‘Giant Fucking Haystacks’ pile drives its way through six epic minutes of sprawling guitar riffs. ‘The Night’ claims they’ll “feel bad when the money comes.” If money follows success, The Tupolev Ghost best prepare for feeling very bad. Endorsed by Kerrang, the band’s appeal stretches far wider musical territory and critical and commercial acclaim looks certain to be theirs."
