JACKSONVILLE, FL | OCTOBER 31, 2017: Last month metalcore band Phantoms released their EP, Screaming on the Inside, which is streaming in full on Alternative Press and available via Outerloop Records.Shortly after, the band went on a quick run for Ice Nine Kills’ Every Trick in the Book Tour alongside labelmates Lorna Shore, in addition to a handful of headlining dates with End the Empire in October. Just last week, the band continued this momentum by announcing a December headlining run, followed by a supporting run with Deadships. Today, Phantoms is thrilled to announce a slew of additional dates in November, ahead of their headliner, in support of Scream Blue Murder. Dates and locations are listed below.
Hailing from Jacksonville, FL, Phantoms is a four-piece metalcore band consisting of Joe Deak (Vocals), Anthony Moten (Lead Guitar), Michael Owens (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 latest release, Screaming on the Inside was produced by Drew Fulk and Kile Odell at Think Sound Studios (Failure Anthem, Emmure, Crown the Empire).
