Bio - from allmusic

Los Angeles, California-based metalcore outfit The Ghost Inside formed in 2006 under the moniker A Dying Dream. They released one EP, Now or
Never, before changing their name and unleashing their debut full-length, 2008's well-received Fury and the Fallen Ones. Hard-hitting,
passionate, and fueled by the kinetic riffing and thunderous breakdowns that have become synonymous with the genre, The Ghost Inside began to
hit their stride on 2010's Returners, spending more and more time on the road honing their skills and sharing the stage with the likes of Devil
Wears Prada, Bring Me the Horizon, and Parkway Drive. The band's third studio outing, Get What You Give, arrived in 2012 on the Epitaph label,
and was produced by A Day to Remember's Jeremy Mckinnon. The Ghost Inside's fourth studio long-player, Dear Youth, arrived in November 2014.

Album Review - from allmusic

The fourth studio long-player from the West Coast metalcore unit, Dear Youth goes all in, doubling down on the band's penchant for crafting
tightly wound, muscular, old-school screamo blasts of aggression with a punk-metal center. The album kicks things off with "Avalanche," a fist-
pumping stadium rocker complete with on-the-nose snare hits and pick slides. Adhering to a vague conceptual framework that addresses the myriad
challenges of growing older, especially within the confines of the often unforgiving and machismo-filled world of post-hardcore, Dear Youth
feels completely dialed in, even as it wrestles with the lyrical tropes and sonic traps of its chosen genre. There are no subtleties to be found
here, and frontman Jonathan Vigil's authoritative wail is still as didactic as it is motivating, but the band deliver breakdowns, beatdowns, and
pit-inducing choruses with such efficiency that it's hard not to marvel at the workmanship, even as the listener's attention can sometimes drift
off and become lost in the near-relentless sonic maelstrom. Standout cuts like the meaty title track, the aforementioned first single
"Avalanche," and the seriously blistering "Mercy," the latter of which proudly tips its hat to Metallica's "For Whom the Bell Tolls" (both
literally and figuratively), manage to come off as both defiant and mature, which is a bona fide rarity in metalcore. Though it may not cover
any new ground for the group, Dear Youth does an awfully nice job of explaining why the Ghost Inside elicit such devotion. There's no posturing
here, just peers trying to work things out the only way they know how: through unmitigated volume.
