Holy Ghost! are ready to kick off an extended touring schedule for the next few months and what better way to say bon voyage than by sharing their track “Some Children” featuring the lord of Yacht Rock, Mr. Michael McDonald.
And this fall marks Holy Ghost!’s FIRST EVER headlining tour in the US in support of their recently released and much-adored debut album Holy Ghost!. Having spent the last year supporting friends LCD Soundsystem, Chromeo and Cut Copy on the road, they are now topping the bill. The group will be joined by two very dynamic acts: Jessica 6 and Eli Escobar, who are going to be a perfect start to the party. A select handful of dates are below and more will be announced shortly!
You can also see them this summer on the Identity Festival Tour, which kicks off on August 11th and features artists as diverse as Booka Shade, Skrillex, Modeselektor and DJ Shadow. For the full list of cites and dates, and all other info please check out Identity Festival’s site.

Holy Ghost!’s already ubiquitous track “Do It Again” is an amazing intro to the band’s catchy-as-hell self-titled debut album. The 10-song LP will include a few guest appearances from the likes of Luke Jenner from the Rapture, Chris Glover from Penguin Prison, and Michael McDonald…and yes, it is that Michael McDonald, formerly of The Doobie Brothers and Steely Dan!
Known around the globe for their party starting singles and their unparalleled ability to get bodies moving on the dancefloor, Holy Ghost! have developed from an in demand DJ duo to a full live band crafting disco-tinged pop songs that satisfy equally on the dancefloor and in a car.
After successful tours last year with LCD Soundsystem and Chromeo, the band will be heading out on a US tour with pals Cut Copy to bring their sounds of future pop to the masses. And these are not guilty pleasure pop tunes…Holy Ghost! makes pop cool.
