Heart of a Champion signs GOST TRIO!

We are thrilled to announce the signing and release of the debut album from Brooklyn's Gost Trio. The CD, titled Miles of Skies of Light (HoC-030) was recorded by Dean Baltulonis (The Hold Steady) and mastered by Dave Gardner (everyone).

Though this is our first time working with any of them, our roots run deep with Gost Trio. The three members of the band (Twin Cities expatriates Frank Bevan, Jacob Sharff, and Andrew Beccone) made up three quarters of Capital!Capital some years back (the fourth member of Capital!Capital, Joe Labatt, contributes "West Coast guitar" on the song "Passenger" on this album). Before that, Frank fronted the Freedom Fighters (Amphetamine Reptile).

Anyway, Gost Trio is returning to play their first show in their native Twin Cities on Saturday, December 26 at the Turf Club in St. Paul, along with our old friends The Dynamiters. This will double as a Gost Trio CD release show, though the album will not see national release until January 2010.

Here's a picture of the pretty silk-screened cover:

  1. I can attest to seeing these guys live is very much like the first time i thought i saw a gost, exhilirating, scary and i couldn't stop thinking about it... or maybe thats what the girl next to me said as she watched the drummer sweat more and more and more.
