Biography

Boston, United States (1999 – 2004)

Boston hardcore band formed in 1999 by singer Wes Eisold (Cold Cave). Through a legal battle the band was forced to change their name; they briefly preformed as “American Nothing” before changing their name in 2003 to Give Up The Ghost. The band put out records on Bridge 9 and Equal Vision before breaking up suddenly in spring 2004.

    Kind of tickles me pink that that shitty Philly band got absolutely nowhere after "rightfully" claiming their name, I just wonder how it feels to be known as "that shitty band that made Give Up the Ghost change their name."

    Actually they disbanded in 2003 and came back in 2011 for occasional shows until now. I think they would do many more shows if Wes, the singer, wasn't so busy with Cold Cave.

    Personally, I've never even heard of the other band American Nightmare. As in the band that sued GUTG.

    банить надо мудаков, пишущих такие "биографии", ей богу, ни ума ни фантазии. Группа - легенда.

    That's because it's the Give Up the Ghost before the Give Up the Ghost.
