Caught A Ghost will be playing a free show at the Getty Center this Saturday, July 26, as part of their U.S. tour, which includes dates with Youngblood Hawke and The Crookes. See below for itinerary.
The band's song "Sleeping At Night" can be heard in the new trailer for the Sundance Jury Prize 2014 Winner Dear White People here. Tessa Thompson from the band also stars in the film, which will be released on October 17, 2014 through Lionsgate/Roadside Attractions.
Kick Kick Snare premiered the bands' new song "Relentless" yesterday here, calling it "a glorious collision of pinballing beats and rousing vocals, elevated by the combined efforts of Los Angeles born and bred Jesse Nolan and Tessa Thompson." The song will be released on July 29 on iTunes and will also include "Time Go" (Live Acoustic).
The band released its debut album Human Nature on April 1 via +1 Records, which premiered on Hype Machine. They have made an appearance on NBC's "Last Call with Carson Daly," along with doing a Daytrotter.com session and a Yahoo Music Session.
"There's no shortage of young acts with great suits mining the Stax era for inspiration right now. But Caught a Ghost simply writes better songs than most and plays them with more confidence and camaraderie," said The Los Angeles Times of the band. New York Magazine agrees: "The sounds of the Cali soul-funksters will haunt you, but you'll be into it."
Helmed by singer/songwriter/producer Jesse Nolan, Caught A Ghost also features drummer Stephen Edelstein and singer/percussionist Tessa Thompson, who has won acclaim for her acting roles in such TV series as "Veronica Mars," "Copper," and the much-anticipated Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. drama "Selma" that Oprah Winfrey is producing.
Tracks from Human Nature have been prominently featured in such high profile TV shows as ABC's "Grey's Anatomy" and "Mistresses," HBO's "Boardwalk Empire," USA Network's "Suits," The CW's "The Vampire Diaries," "The Originals" and "Supernatural" and Fox's "Rake." The band's cover of the classic Sam Cooke tune "You Send Me" was also featured in a Victoria's Secret TV/online campaign.
