DAN SWANÖ's '80s Hard Rock Band GHOST: Demos And Live Recordings To Be Released In May

Long before Tobias Forge achieved worldwide fame with GHOST, there was another Swedish hard rock band with the same name. In 1983, then 10-year-old Dan Swanö started GHOST with his 12-year-old friend Anders Måreby, drawing influences from KISS and other classic rock groups of the late ’70s and early ’80s. The young duo composed 60 songs between 1983 and 1988, most of them sung in Swedish but a few in English as well. They made several demo and live recordings but never landed a record deal despite their best efforts.

Now, 30 years after Swanö‘s GHOST transformed into ICARUS and then UNICORN, 30 songs from Dan‘s first serious band will be released on May 18 by Bone Records on CD (limited to 200 copies) and double gatefold LP (300 copies, black vinyl).

For pre-orders, send an e-mail to: bonerecordssweden@gmail.com.

In the latest issue of Sweden Rock Magazine, Forge said that he wasn’t bothered by the upcoming release of “1983-1988”. “I think it’s cool, it’s fun,” he said. “I don’t think it’s negative in any way. It’s existing stuff, so they have all the right in the world to do this.”

In recent years, Swanö has made a name for himself as an in-demand producer while continuing to make music with a variety of projects.
