Ghost Ship Octavius (God Forbid, Nevermore, Queensryche) to make live debut

Posted by on October 30, 2015

If you were one of the many fans who helped crowd fund Ghost Ship Octavius’ self-titled EP a few years back, we have great news for you. After a seemingly never-ending wait, the group will finally play out live. And while the tour routing may be all-too-brief at the moment, rest assured there will be more in 2016. Drummer Van Williams (Nevermore, Ashes Of Ares), Matt Wicklund (God Forbid, Himsa, Warrel Dane), and vocalist extraordinaire Adōn Fanion will be joined on this run by good friend Parker Lundgren of Queensryche who will be playing additional rhythm and lead guitar. Wicklund spoke about the band playing their first live shows:

“It’s been a long time coming and I couldn’t be happier that we are finally making our live debut and doing this run of shows! This is just the beginning for us and we will be working hard to bring GHOST SHIP OCTAVIUS to stages worldwide through 2016 and beyond.”

Fans of melodic metal with searing, visceral guitar leads and operatic vocals to compliment the cacophony should check out the band if they come to port in a nearby city. If you’re already a fan of the members’ previous bands, there is no way you’ll be disappointed.
