Following their debut full-length, In Tongues, released in August, Florida Indie Rockers, Roadkill Ghost Choir have just released their 2nd EP 'Keep It Under Cover' features four cover songs.
Emerging fully-formed from the desolate heart of Central Florida, Roadkill Ghost Choir make unsettling, powerful American rock, Tom Petty by way of Radiohead and Cormac McCarthy. Set against Kiffy Meyer’s ghostly steel pedal, singer and main songwriter Andrew Shepard triumphantly conjures an allegorical American landscape of drifters, specters and violent saints. Andrew’s brothers Maxx (drums) and Zach (bass) Shepard round out the rhythm section, and Stephen Garza handles lead guitar.
The band released their debut EP ‘Quiet Light’ in 2013 in the midst of a touring run that saw them opening for Band of Horses and 2013 festival slots at New York’s Governor’s Ball, Austin City Limits and Shaky Knees in Atlanta, GA. In January 2014 the band was invited to perform on the David Letterman Show, where they performed standout track “Beggar’s Guild.” Their debut full-length, “In Tongues,” recorded in Athens, Georgia and in their home studio in Deland, Florida with producer Doug Boehm was released on August 19. The band’s most recent tour included stops at Bonnaroo and Lollapalooza.
