After bassist Jim Riley previously confirmed to Kerrang! that The Ghost Inside would have new music ready in time for their one-night-only show at London's O2 Academy Brixton in July, Andrew Tkaczyk has now revealed that the band's new album is officially complete.
Chatting with Stray From The Path's Craig Reynolds on The Downbeat podcast, the drummer elaborated on the writing and recording process for the follow-up to 2014's excellent Dear Youth album, explaining: "Back in January of last year I turned one of my bedrooms into a little studio, and the guys came out and we just started writing it. So when we got hold of Will [Putney, producer] to tell him we were interested in him producing the record, we also had Jeremy [McKinnon] from A Day To Remember on board, which we’ve had on the last two records.
"How it worked was, we first initially met up in Orlando at Jeremy’s studio and Andrew Wade’s studio to do these pre-pro demos. And that was in May of last year. So he came there, and we all flew to Florida, and we spent two or three weeks in Orlando. And then we took a little break because we had our comeback show to do in July, so we took a little break to prepare for that, and then went back to good old Belleville, New Jersey to finish and track the record."

Andrew also added: "I don’t think we’ve quite settled on a name [for the album] yet – but the record is done, and literally as of last night we are listening to the mix, and all this stuff. So it’s super-exciting."
