Ghosts Of Sunset release new single ‘If You’re Not Coming Back’ on 14th September through Golden Robot Records.
Ghosts Of Sunset is a musical project between singer-songwriter John Merchant and singer-songwriter/multi-instrumentalist Todd Long.
With over thirty years’ experience in the music business, Merchant and Long, alongside a cast of musicians with their roots in the 1980s hard rock/hair metal scene, whose resumes included L.A. Guns, Ratt, Enuff Znuff, Kix, and the Lita Ford Band drew attention with the release of their debut EP Headed West.
The singles from that EP – ‘Miles In-Between’, ‘Never Goodbye’ and ‘Another Rock N Roll Show’ – clocked up several hundred thousand streams between them, plus the charity single ‘All I Wanna Do Is Rock’ had all proceeds going to Save Our Stages.
The song is said to stick true to their hair metal/Hollywood rock stylings, with a ballad-esque vibe. Word has it: “The single demonstrates that it’s hard to really know what gone means until you come to grips with what ‘forever means. A slow fadeaway allows time for preparation, but a quick flash and burn leaves you with more questions than answers. Asking your only true love what to do if they’re not coming back”.
