Sensational Melbourne-based melodic metal outfit The Last Martyr have returned with a new single, “Like A Ghost”, a track that tackles the contemplation of giving up on goals and aspirations when the going gets tough, and overcoming the negative thoughts we all struggle with. The band has also announced they’ll be jumping on the Melbourne date of Bare Bones East coast tour to launch the new single live!

“Like A Ghost” is a hard-hitting tune from start to finish with a heavy, haunting undertone that compliments the theme of the track. Vocalist Monica Strut‘s impressive vocals are flaunted with soaring highs and harsh screams that are utilised in a chorus that’ll get you humming along by the second half! Monica explains the thoughts behind the single in saying that “Like A Ghost” is about a conversation with someone contemplating giving up on a lifelong dream. At first it was written about having that conversation with someone else but later on I realised that it is also a conversation that many of us frequently have with ourselves. “There are good days where you feel on top of the world and bad days where there devil on your shoulder takes over. The song is about trying to stay positive and learning to catch yourself in those darker times whilst also recognising that as difficult as the unconventional road may be, it’s a hell of a lot easier than becoming a shell or ‘ghost’ of yourself by giving up.
The Last Martyr are supporting Barebones for their Rival Minds Tour in Melbourne on December 7th at Stay Gold
