After years of trying to start bands but failing to find anyone serious about music, Sean Shepard (Guitar/Vox), at the age of 20 decided to go it alone in the studio and record some songs that he had written over the years. The result was a six song EP he titled “Wolves & Sheep” under the band name Antighost. The EP was recorded at Raydon Studio and it was released in August of the same year.
In October of 2016, Shepard met Dylan Vanderson (Drums). After a year of playing shows with various bass players, the two met Joe Bida (Bass) and the final piece of Antighost fell into place.
The band worked tirelessly to perfect their performance and sound, bringing forth a new wave of alternative rock rooted in the grunge, emo and punk eras. Antighost followed up "Wolves & Sheep" with their debut album "Creatures" a hard hitting 15 track concept record. Despite the bands young age they toured tirelessly across the country, igniting stages along the way.
Originally based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, word quickly spread of Antighost's high energy and raw presence. The trio packed up and moved to Detroit to pursue their music in the booming music scene of the Motor City.
Antighost’s latest EP “ANIMAL PANIC!” (2019) marks the band’s boldest release to date. Praised for their live presence and lyrical content, Antighost continue to prove that if rock and roll is dead, it’s phantom is twice as loud.
