We are a rock band. And sometimes a pop band.
With electronic things. From Luxembourg.
We write songs. Somehow. We play shows. Anywhere.
You're here. Good. You're most welcome.
My Own Ghost is a rock band from Luxembourg founded in 2013.
The music relies on Julie's warm and powerful voice and on the musicians' different backgrounds, ranging from pop to metal, by adding some electronic tweaks. Within 9 months the band hit the stages of Luxembourg and played some shows in the UK.
After shooting a promo clip of their single Crystal Ball, My Own Ghost released their debut album ‘Love Kills’ in September 2014. In August, My Own Ghost signed a deal with Secret Entertainment from Finland who took charge of the distribution and promotion of the album.
In February 2015, My Own Ghost released a first official music video for their second single Silence. In March, they signed a deal with the German booking agency Red Lion Music. In July 2015, My Own Ghost performed as support for Delain and later on they supported the Japanese Heavy Metal pioneers Loudness on 4 dates on their European Tour.
2016 started with a UK tour comprising 7 dates and in June My Own Ghost toured again as support for Loudness in Germany and the Netherlands. In the meantime they recorded their second album, produced by Hiili Hiilesmaa (HIM, Apocalyptica, Amorphis a.o.) and mastered by Svante Forsbäck (Rammstein, Sunrise Avenue, Bullet For My Valentine a.o.).
In 2017, My Own Ghost started the year with concerts in Germany and Belgium, followed by four dates in the UK. In March they supported Tarja Turunen on her 'Shadow Shows' in the UK, the Netherlands, Luxembourg, Germany and Switzerland. On April 7th, ‘Life On Standby’ was released via Secret Entertainment and they promoted the album with a tour through Poland, Slovakia and the Czech Republic.
After having the pleasure to support Alter Bridge on their show in Luxembourg, My Own Ghost supported German metal band Serious Black on their 'Magic World' Tour, as well as Herman Frank, leading them to Germany, Belgium, the Netherlands, UK, France, Spain and Italy.
2018 started off with the release of a music video for 'Hope' and a few shows in the UK. Shortly after, My Own Ghost released a lyric video for 'Don't Say You Love Me' and toured with Pokerface from Russia for 12 shows across Belgium, Germany and the Netherlands. In July 2018 they once again supported Loudness from Japan on their 'Rise To Glory Over Europe' Tour as special guest. They also had the opportunity to support Robin Beck from the USA on 3 dates of her 'Love Is Coming' Tour in Spain.
In September 2018, My Own Ghost embarked on a tour of three and a half weeks across Germany and Austria, where they supported Saving Abel (USA), Puddle Of Mudd (USA) and And Then She Came (DE). Meanwhile, My Own Ghost have also started working on their third album.
