Love Ghost releases new single “Puppet”

“Puppet” is an emotional and ambient song about feeling controlled and vulnerable and putting the needs of others in front of your own. 

“Puppet” follows a string of single releases for Love Ghost praised by Rolling Stone, American Songwriter, FLAUNT, Alternative Press, and others. Love Ghost has recently toured Europe, where they played Rockpalast in Germany. In August they toured Mexico City playing shows at both Auditorio BB and Amazon’s Gamergy Festival which was broadcast to all of Latin America. They have done songs with artists around the world including Rico Nasty, Adan Cruz, Mabiland and Tankurt Manas.

Love clings to you forever whether you’re in it or out of it. Like an apparition you can’t shake, it never leaves. Love Ghost’s music conjures a style equally informed by Seattle tradition and Souncloud-era fearlessness. The band recently returned from the iconic Rockpalast festival in Germany, following in the footsteps of Smashing Pumpkins, Green Day, R.E.M. and many others. They have toured extensively, playing shows in major cities like London, Prague, Hamburg, Tokyo, Osaka, Quito, Dublin, Cork, and Galway.

They have collaborated with global artists from Mexico, Spain, Turkey, UK, Colombia, Germany, and Russia, including Rico Nasty, Adan Cruz, Princessbri, Scarlett Rose, Geassassin, Tankurt Manus, Mabiland, Strange Bones, Kamiyada+, Original God, Teeam Revolver, Grafi, Waynewood, and Vollny.

“The new music that’s coming from Love Ghost is just our storytelling of the things happening in our lives at the moment,” says band frontman Finnegan Bell. “These songs, to me, are really all threaded together by time. We are in an insane period of history, and therefore we are writing some insane music.”

Love Ghost is an alternative rock / trap / electro band composed of Finnegan Bell (lead vocals, guitar), Daniel Alcala (guitar, engineering choirs), Cory Batchler (keyboards, backing vocals) and Daniel Gallardo (drums, vocals).
