Dirty Ghosts Announce North American Tour


San Francisco-based rockers Dirty Ghosts will hit the road for a run of Fall tour dates, beginning with a hometown show on October 29 at Brick and Mortar. After that, it's on to a Fun Fun Fun Fest afterparty in Austin, Detroit, Toronto, and more before they circle back to the Bay Area for a show at the Elbo Room on November 30. Their debut album, Metal Moon, is out now on Last Gang Records. See all the dates below, along with a video for the song "Katana Rock".

Dirty Ghosts' front woman Allyson Baker has been a guitarist in both Toronto and San Francisco’s hardcore scene for years, and now she's stepped up to the microphone with Dirty Ghosts, whose "Katana Rock" video directed by Derrick Beckles (creator of TV CARNAGE, Adult Swim's Totally For Teens and the upcoming series Hot Package) marks the second collaboration for these two.

The video for the song carries over elements of Dirty Ghosts’ hardcore background, combining an Argento influenced series of lit rooms. Images of layered psychedelia wash over projections of songstress Baker while she belts out the crafted, driving urgency of Katana Rock.
