The Ghost Inside

The Ghost Inside: Andrew Tkaczyk hat „Angst“ vor dem ersten Konzert nach fast vier Jahren

Im Juli spielen The Ghost Inside ihre erste und bisher einzige Show seit ihrem verheerenden Busunglück vor über drei Jahren.

Nach dem Unfall mussten sich die Bandmitglieder unzähligen Operationen unterziehen. Schlagzeuger Andrew Tkaczyk hat in Folge seiner schweren Verletzungen ein Bein verloren und erzählt in einem Statement auf seinem Instagram-Profil nun von seinen Ängsten und der bevorstehenden Comeback-Show in Los Angeles.

Seit dem Unfall habe er sehr oft daran gedacht, wie es sein würde, wenn die Band wieder gemeinsam auf der Bühne stehen würde.

Zwischendran habe er immer wieder gedacht, dass es nahezu unmöglich sei und jetzt, wo der Moment nicht mehr in allzu weiter Ferne ist, wisse er immer noch nicht, was genau auf ihn zukommt.

„There hasn’t been a single one of those days where I haven’t sat down, stared at the ceiling, and dreamt about the first time The Ghost Inside plays a show again. I’ve had countless dreams about it. Some bad. Some good. But now it’s reality. Was there a point in time where I thought it was impossible? Several. Was I uncertain about the future of the band? Certainly.“

Auch wenn er Angst habe, glaube er daran, dass die Band die Show rocken wird. Das Leben hat The Ghost Inside hart getroffen und sie wurden auf die Probe gestellt, doch letztendlich ginge es darum, wie stark man gewillt ist, weiterzumachen.

„There’s no denying it. Life hit us pretty hard. But it’s not about how hard you get hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. Yeah, yeah I know. Rocky quote. […] Do I have anxiety about playing a show again? You bet your fucking ass I do. I’m terrified. It’s been impossible to not focus on who I was, who I am now, and what I will become. At the same time, I’m sure as soon as we start playing, all that anxiety will drain out of my body and mind, and I’ll feel right at home.“

Wie auch seine Bandkollegen wisse er zum jetzigen Zeitpunkt noch nicht, wie es nach der Show mit The Ghost Inside weitergehen wird. Sie seien dabei, es herauszufinden.

„None of us know how this is going to go. Hundreds, maybe even thousands of you have messaged me over the last few years asking “When will you tour again?” To which I didn’t even reply. That’s because I don’t know. We don’t know. But we’re about to find out. It would mean the world if you could come out and share this once in a lifetime experience with us.“

It’s been 1,197 days since November 19th 2015. The day that changed our lives forever. A LOT has happened between then and now. There hasn’t been a single one of those days where I haven’t sat down, stared at the ceiling, and dreamt about the first time @theghostinside plays a show again. I’ve had countless dreams about it. Some bad. Some good. But now it’s reality. Was there a point in time where I thought it was impossible? Several. Was I uncertain about the future of the band? Certainly. I didn’t want to let one major event define me as a human. When I woke up in the hospital without my right leg, I chose not to throw myself a pity party. I chose to learn how to own it. My “this won’t beat me” attitude, is what got me to this point. There’s no denying it. Life hit us pretty hard. But it’s not about how hard you get hit. It’s about how hard you can get hit and keep moving forward. Yeah, yeah I know. Rocky quote. But I’ve never believed that more in my life than I do now, and on July 13th 2019, we get to demonstrate that sentiment to the world. Do I have anxiety about playing a show again? You bet your fucking ass I do. I’m terrified. It’s been impossible to not focus on who I was, who I am now, and what I will become. At the same time, I’m sure as soon as we start playing, all that anxiety will drain out of my body and mind, and I’ll feel right at home. Either way, we feel like we don’t only owe it to ourselves to do this show, but we owe it to all of our family, friends, and fans for the overwhelming amount of love and support you’ve given us these last 3+ years. None of us know how this is going to go. Hundreds, maybe even thousands of you have messaged me over the last few years asking “When will you tour again?” To which I didn’t even reply. That’s because I don’t know. We don’t know. But we’re about to find out. It would mean the world if you could come out and share this once in a lifetime experience with us. Tickets go on sale this Friday @ 10 am PST.
