Toronto-based rock/emo quartet, First Ghost dropped their newest single “Burnt Out” on April 6th, almost exactly two years after releasing their five-track EP Secret Talk (April 1, 2016). Accompanied by a dope music video, which you can view below, the guys’ catchy sound has lead them to become an increasingly common name in Toronto’s fast-growing music scene. They’ve performed with groups like Hawthorne Heights, Into it. Over it., Citizen, and Seaway, and now you can grab this hit single for FREE! Download away, today.

We checked in with the dudes about the song to which they replied with the following collective statement:

“‘Burnt Out’ is one of our favourite songs to play live! This is partly due to its summery vibe that gets crowds moving after a long Canadian winter but also because we wrote it from a place of nostalgia and reflection. Drawing influence from some of our favourite bands like Jimmy Eat World and American Football, ‘Burnt Out’ is a reminder that these are the best days of our lives and we need to make the most of it. Hopefully we can pass on this feeling and provide the soundtrack to spark a crazy summer night or two!”
