Must Be The Holy Ghost Announce New EP & Tour

Alt-electronic artist Must Be The Holy Ghost, the solo endeavor of North Carolina native Jared Draughon, has announced that his new EP Overflow will be released on September 16th via Cardigan Records. A video for the first single “Melt Down” can be seen here. Draughon, who engineered and mixed the EP himself, will be following up his 2014 debut album Get Off.

I think of ‘Overflow’ largely as an extension of ‘Get Off’,” Draughon says. “I’ve been playing songs like ‘Forest,’ ‘All Night,’ and ‘Melt Down’ live for over a year while touring to support the first record. They were all written shortly after ‘Get Off’ was released, but it took awhile before I recorded them. Playing the songs in so many different venues and situations helped me figure out how they should be recorded to find a balance between a studio sound with a live feel.

The video for “Melt Down” showcases Draughon’s signature live performance in which visual artist Evan Hawkins uses water and food-coloring on an overhead projector to bathe the show in swirling colors. Fans will have a chance to see the liquid light show in action on the upcoming EP release tour (dates below). Pre-order Overflow now on iTunes or get your hands on a limited-run vinyl version at http://www.cardiganrecords.com.
