Biography

Quite a few modern day rock bands like to list hip emo bands as prime influences, but judging from their impressive instrumental chops, these guys are no strangers to the proggier side of things. Social Ghost is one of the few bands to proudly proclaim their admiration of such challenging-yet-melodic bands as Rush and The Police. And the Orlando, Florida-based group has something in common with these aforementioned zillion-selling acts – they manage to create a massive sound with only three band members (and like the others, their bassist doubles as lead vocalist).

Comprised of singer/bassist Van Lugo, guitarist Neight, and drummer Matt Brown, Social Ghost is turning heads with their recently released self-titled EP, a release that manages to balance the tuneful with the tricky. Social Ghost has already played sold out shows at some of Florida’s most celebrated venues, including the House of Blues and the Social, as well as festivals like JRR-B-Q, Warped Tour 2006 and Earthday Birthday 13 at Orlando’s Citrus Bowl. Additionally, Social Ghost has supported such renowned acts as Shinedown, Staind, Rob Zombie, Mudvayne, Plain White T’s, Nonpoint, and Alice in Chains, the latter of which the group has served as direct support for their recent acoustic tour. Jim Mallonee, VP of Booking for Live Nation, witnessed a Social Ghost performance during their stint supporting Shinedown, and raved, “I was frankly flabbergasted when I witnessed their show, and kind of pissed off that I was in the dark about these guys until that point.”
