As founding Neurosis guitarist/vocalist SCOTT KELLY is preparing to release his new solo album, The Forgiven Ghost In Me, this week Decibel Magazine is streaming the title track to the forthcoming LP.
Dissimilar to his previous solo outings, on The Forgiven Ghost In Me KELLY sought out additional musicians to help create his vision for this release, recruiting good friends Noah Landis (Neurosis) and Greg Dale, forming SCOTT KELLY AND THE ROAD HOME. Additionally, Jason Roeder (Neurosis, Sleep) and Josh Graham (A Storm Of Light, Neurosis) make guest appearances on the album. These additional instrumental and vocal contributions add incredible new dimensions to KELLY’s foreboding tales. The eight tracks were recorded by Landis, the album running deep with over forty minutes of foreboding Americana showcasing the ever-evolving artist brandishing some of his most expressive hymns of pain, reflection and redemption to date.
