Communist Daughter have released the single, “Ghosts”, from their upcoming EP, Lions & Lambs. Listen to the new single below and see what Communist Daughter front-man Johnny Solomon had to say about the song.
Says Communist Daughter front-man Johnny Solomon about the new song: “I wrote Ghosts while I was holed up over the winter in treatment in rural Minnesota. It snowed constantly. It was the definition of solitude. Just me and my thoughts. The song’s about saying goodbye to the life I thought I had to live. Its about not letting the past own you. But its not about winning that struggle, its about beginning that struggle. Its all the dark nights in snow storms when your headlights are hitting snow flakes and making you dizzy. Oh, and its also just a song by a band in Minnesota.”
It’s been a rough journey for Johnny Solomon, chief singer and songwriter for Communist Daughter. After picking up steam in the mid 2000s with his band Friends Like These, everything came to a screeching halt due to Solomon battling addiction. It wasn’t until he met his fiancé and fellow Communist Daughter band member Molly Moore, who pushed him to get clean and live up to his potential from so many years prior. Now Communist Daughter has swollen to a packed lineup featuring members Adam Switlick, Al Weiers, Jonathan Blaseg, and Dan Demuth & Dillon Marchus, along with Solomon and Moore. On July 10th, Communist Daughter will release the Lions & Lambs EP that will introduce a clean, sober Johnny Solomon and feature deeply personal songs about addiction, regret, and redemption.
