Today, HM is proud to premiere “Goodlake,” the new single from post-hardcore act Ghost Heart. The song comes from their upcoming EP, Catharsis, schedule to hit stores and streams on July 7. The Spokane, WA-based band released their debut album, Ocean Eyes, in 2016.

Ghost Heart vocalist Nick Tatosky shared the meaning behind the song with HM:

“‘Goodlake’ was written shortly after I lost my grandfather. It expresses the feelings of regret and guilt that I felt, thinking of all the missed chances to make memories or show how much I cared. I suppose it’s my way of expressing the saying, ‘You don’t know what you have until it’s gone.'”

The band will be headed out on tour this July to support the EP release.

Initially shunned by both believers and non-believers, they were fighting for their spot at the table, ultimately building a legacy that would go on to change the genre forever. HM presents an oral history of the beginning of Christian metal music, featuring Guardian, Tourniquet, Holy Soldier, Whitecross, and, of course, Stryper.
