Black Lives Matter (TIB38)

6/10/2020
Recently I participated in a peaceful protest for the Black Lives Matter movement here in Indianapolis, and it truly changed my life!

The Ghost Inside (TIB36)

5/12/2020
"Life's swinging hard, but I'm swinging harder" isn't just a killer The Ghost Inside lyric, it's literally what this band has come to embody. TGI have always been a metal band with empowering lyrics backed by beatdown riffs, but over the last couple of years the band has been on the opposite spectrum of the beatdown. After a horrific bus crash in late 2015, almost 5 years later, the TGI boys are back and better than ever with their newest album "The Ghost Inside" set to drop in early June of...
