Vocalist Jonathan Vigil has recorded a new video to explain The Ghost Inside's status and whether or not the band will be able to perform at the 2017 Warped Tour.
Check out the video below!
The Ghost Inside were involved a serious bus accident in late 2015, and while all members of the band survived, their bus driver Greg Hoke did not. In early 2016, drummer Andrew Tkaczyk revealed the accident resulted in the loss of one of his legs.
In March, it was announced that the Ghost Inside would be the first confirmed band to play the 2017 Warped Tour.
“When that accident happened, I said, ‘I will hold this spot until the day before Warped Tour started.’ I said ‘It’s your spot,’” founder Kevin Lyman said during the live artists announcement stream.
“I’ve never announced a band for a tour a year and a half ahead. Ghost Inside will be on the 2017 Warped Tour.”
Unfortunately, it appears that will not be the case.
“I think a lot of people, including ourselves, thought we were going to be a lot further along than we are currently and unfortunately we're not going to be able to play this summer,” explains Vigil.
“Unfortunately we don't have a timeline for when we're going to be back to playing shows again but we all think about it every single day and we all miss it and we all wanta get back to it just as much as you guys wanta see us play again.”
