Stellar Circuits issue playthrough video for new single “Go With Your Ghost”

Progressive metal quartet Stellar Circuits recently announced the release of their new record, Ways We Haunt on November 9th. The effort was produced by Jamie King (Between The Buried And Me, Scale The Summit, The Contortionist). Last week, the group released a music video for the record’s first single, “Go With Your Ghost”; view it below. Now, the band have debuted a guitar and bass playthrough for the track:

Bassist Jesse Olsen said of the track:

“This track went through a lot of transitions. It was one of those songs you’re writing that floats there for a while. We’d leave it alone until we could riff something out that better suited the rest of the sections without rushing the natural progression of writing. I think for that very reason it ended up being very unique among the rest of the tracks on the record.”

Album pre-orders are available now at StellarCircuitsMusic.com and through digital vendors.

Of the record in general, vocalist Ben Beddick said:

“The concept behind the record was something that developed as we continued to write songs. I remember being really into the series True Detective at the time. There was an idea surrounding one episode about your mind being like a locked room. The concept was taken further into the idea of our minds being like a house with many rooms. I was really inspired by this and the metaphor of a haunted house. After stepping back from the songs and the sequence it was so clear that there was a theme that progressed throughout. It’s similar to the cycle that we go through in our minds when we can’t let things go. We can compartmentalize regret and loss as well as our insecurities when we hold onto them. There’s a light at the end of the tunnel though – where we can finally come to terms with our lives and who we are, even if it’s just for a moment. That’s what music and art has always done for me.”

Olsen adds:

“This album encompasses a variety of different moods and soundscapes from track to track. We’re all constantly experimenting with different sounds and vibes so we never really know where we’ll end up at the end of the process.”
