On joining the tour, Phantoms’ drummer, Patrick Gale states:

Formed in 2010, Lorna Shore consists of vocalist Tom Barber, guitarists Adam De Micco and Connor Deffley, and drummer Austin Archey. To date, they have released three EPs and released their debut full-length Psalms in June of 2015. Aside from being featured on the Metal Alliance Tour with Deicide, Lorna Shore has most notably toured alongside bands such as Carnifex, Chelsea Grin, The Black Dahlia Murder, and more. The band has also played festivals such as the New England Metaland Hardcore Festival, Never Say Never Festival, South By So What, Skate and Surf Festival and SXSW’s New England Metal and Hardcore Festival Stage. Lorna Shore’s unique signature aesthetic spans death metal, black metal, power metal, and progressive rock for a style that encompasses brutal breakdowns, dazzling technical passages, white-knuckle-ride dynamics, and rich textured moments. The band’s sophomore album, Flesh Coffin (Outerloop Records), released in February of 2017, was produced by Lorna Shore, Carson Slovak, and Grant McFarland at Atrium Audio (August Burns Red, Everclear, From Ashes to New), mixed by Carson Slovak and Grant McFarland, and mastered by Zakk Cervini (Beartooth, Good Charlotte, Blink 182). In its first week, Flesh Coffin hit the Billboard charts, reaching #2Current Hard Rock and Top New Artist, #5 Overall Hard Rock, and #67 Top Current Album. Being hailed by Trevor Strnaud’s (The Black Dahlia Murder) for Metal Injection stating, “Lorna Shore easily transcend what is commonly known as deathcore with their blisteringly creative marriage of black and tech metal chops…it’s clinical, quick moving, with impressive instrumental shredding,” and New Noise Magazine who penned”There’s no doubt that Lorna Shore’s sophomore record will go down as one of the best deathcore albums in recent memory.”
Hailing from Jacksonville, FL, Phantoms is a four-piece metalcore band consisting of Joe Deak (Vocals), Anthony Moten (Guitar), Patrick Gale (Drums) and Quincy Jones (Bass). Pulling inspiration from a variety of genres, Phantoms is heavily influenced by post-hardcore, black metal, metalcore, alternative rock, and nu-metal, creating a sound that is hard hitting and complete with honest lyrics and catchy hooks. Originally from Baltimore, MD under the moniker of Camisado, the band took the local scene by storm, sharing the stage with acts including Motionless in White, I See Stars, and Our Last Night in addition to winning Vans Warped Tour’s Ernie Ball Battle of the Bands. As their image and sound began to develop, a more suitable name was required and in 2015 the group shifted to their new moniker, Phantoms.
As a band, Phantoms focuses on the message that you should never give up on your dreams and the importance of living life to the fullest. Gale, the band’s drummer expands, “No matter how tough things get…never give up. Take a deep breath, assess your situation, keep an open mind to criticism and learning, and really ask yourself if what you’re pursuing is worth every moment of your attention….No one is going to make things happen for you, you’ve got to do them yourself!” Phantoms have gained a dedicated following that has been anxiously waiting for the band’s next move since the release of their debut EP, Where Is My Mind?, in December of 2015. The band’s forthcoming release, Screaming on the Inside was produced by Drew Fulk and Kile Odell at Think Sound Studios (Failure Anthem, Emmure, Crown the Empire).
