Just Another Ghost

Album: Bad Frequencies (2018)

Songfacts®:

  • Hawthorne Heights singer and guitarist JT Woodruff: "'Just Another Ghost' is a song about floating through life, and the anxiety that comes with the feeling that life is passing you by. One second you are having the time of your life, and the next second you feel all alone. Your mood can go from euphoria to panic, until you eventually feel you aren't even there, or you are invisible."
  • The song's music video was directed by Californian photographer and cinematographer Benny Gagliardi. The clip features Hawthorne Heights performing in two extremely different locations to create the feeling of being in different worlds. Woodruff explained:

    "We wanted to have a video that matched that feeling and emotion, which is why we shot in two entirely different locations. We put flyers on the wall at Slidebar from life-changing shows that each member of HH personally went to when we were growing up. Then to capture the sadness and loneliness, we drove out to Slab City, California in a location that was perfectly isolation, like in a dream. We wanted it to look like two entirely different worlds, because that's how life can feel sometimes. Anxiety is powerful, and we wanted to capture that raw feeling."
