Exploring Entertainment in Florida's 850 & Beyond
JACKSONVILLE, FL | September 20, 2017: Metalcore band Phantoms recently released their EP, Screaming on the Inside, last month via Outerloop Records, streaming the album in full on Alternative Press. Shortly after, the band announced select dates on Ice Nine Kills’ Every Trick in the Book Tour alongside labelmates Lorna Shore. Today, Phantoms has announced a handful of headlining dates with End the Empire, expanding their tour and providing more fans the chance to see the band live. Dates and locations are listed below. Drummer Patrick Gale states:
“We are super excited to be hitting the road again this October with our friends in End The Empire. Huge shoutout to Alex from Wavelink Agency for putting together a few shows for us alongside our run with Ice Nine Kills and Lorna Shore. We met up with Tommy (Lorna Shore) and JD (Ice Nine Kills) at their recent show in Jacksonville, they’re great bands and the upcoming Every Trick In The Book Tour is going to be one hell of a good time! Catch us in a city near you!” – Patrick Gale
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).
