Well, this is exciting. One of the classic hardcore bands of yesteryear have reformed and are playing shows. American Nightmare (or Give Up The Ghost, as they came to be known, due to legal wranglings) are BACK and are playing shows in Boston and LA before 2011 is out.

Boston, MA: Thursday, 29 December 2011
Los Angeles, CA: Saturday, 31 December 2011

These are the first Give Up The Ghost shows since their sudden hiatus taken almost eight years ago. The line-up will feature the definitive line-up of Wesley Eisold, Timothy Cossar, Joshua Holden, Brian Masek, and Alex Garcia-Rivera.

Deathwish are also releasing Background Music and We’re Down Til We’re Underground on vinyl. Get your dollars ready.
