Ghosts of Sunset to release EP with guest musicians from L.A. Guns, Junkyard, Danger Danger & more
Ghosts of Sunset featuring singer John Merchant and multi-instrumentalist Todd Long will be releasing an EP titled Headed West later this year via Golden Robot Records. The album features contributions from former and current guest musicians from bands such as L.A. Guns, Junkyard, Enuff Z’Nuff and Danger Danger.
Golden Robot Records‘ website indicates (with slight edits):
“Ghosts of Sunset features former (Dutch Henry) singer-songwriter John Merchant from Western Michigan, and former Michigan resident and now Alaska transplant multi-instrumentalist and former (The Verve Pipe) drummer Todd Long. Together they have made a killer EP called “Headed West” due out in 2020 on Golden Robot Records.
“Headed West” features the work of both Merchant and Long as well as a cast of musicians with their roots in the 1980’s hard rock/hair metal scene especially in Los Angeles, California.
The duo brought in well known musicians that include Tim Mosher (Junkyard), Tracii Guns (L.A. Guns), Adam Hamilton (Tuff) , Johnny Monaco (Enuff Z’Nuff) , Stacey Blades (Ratt) and Bruno Ravel (Danger Danger) to name but a few.
The result was a killer selection of songs with roots buried in the Sunset Strip in LA but with an authentic, updated vibe to make each song relevant to todays music and vibe.
Singles and EP out in 2020 on Golden Robot Records.”
