The Swiss alternative rockers unveil their second single of their upcoming trilogy, nod to 00s alternative rock and modern post-hardcore

Swiss outfit Leave The Ghosts Behind have unveiled a new single, "With You in The Dark"

Following on from debut effort, "Diamond Skin", the latest track takes influence from across alternative rock and post-hardcore, displaying a deft balance of fresh and nostalgic, driving guitars and emotive lyricism intertwining at ease.

Leave The Ghosts Behind emerge from the heart of Bern, Switzerland, with a sound that blends the raw energy of hardcore punk with the melodic sensibilities of modern post-hardcore, nodding to band such as Being as an Ocean, Billy Talent and Rise Against.

"With You in The Dark" is the band's darkest output to date, a weighty instrumentation with forceful grooves and fist-pumping tenacity. Nodding to the punk leanings of their original project, Apartment 99, the new iteration offers Leave The Ghosts Behind an opportunity to explore heavier influences, with a depth and atmosphere not present in their former work.

Despite the heavier tangent, Leave The Ghosts Behind's trio of new and upcoming singles retain a stark accessibility, delving into myriad accessible themes such as jealousy, break-ups and toxic workplace environments, as the quartet's grounded and relatable brand of modern alternative rock sees it's genesis.
