"Ghosts of Sailors at Sea is an instrumental band from Boston made up of four long time friends. During the summer of 2015, the band completed recording their second lp Red Sky Morning with engineer J Robbins (Jawbox/Burning Airlines) at his Magpie Cage studio in Baltimore. Shortly after returning home, the band was invited by the website Metal Sucks to record some additional material with engineer Kurt Ballou (Converge) in Boston. Wanting to focus on promoting Red Sky Morning at the time, the Ballou recordings were held on to for a future release. After touring with Brooklyn’s Reindeer Castle, the bands began talk of a split, and this provided the perfect opportunity for releasing the song ‘Harry McNish’ from the Ballou session. The songs are backed by Reindeer Castle’s ‘Flight of the Salmon’ and ‘Kamchatka’ and the record should be out in March. The download of the record will include a bonus surprise from each band."
