Ghostemane Tours Australia For The First Time This May

Underground American rapper and metal singer Ghostemane (Eric Whitney) is packing his bags for his debut Australian tour this May. He will be launching the tour at the Manning Bar in Sydney, then will head his way to 256 Wickham in Brisbane before wrapping it up at The Corner Hotel in Melbourne. After the AU dates, he'll fly to New Zealand for a one-off show at the Studio in Auckland.

The rapper and producer is known for fusing together hip hop, industrial, and metal elements in his music. With a degree in Astrophysics, he draws influences from a plethora of content including psychedelics, Nine Inch Nails, Outkast, medieval magic, occultism, and Ancient Egyptian books. He has so far racked up hundreds of millions of streams across songs such as 'Nihil', 'Mercury: Retrograde', 'Andromeda', '1000 Rounds (w/ Pouya)', and 'Flesh'.

Ghostemane grew up in Florida and was originally a guitar player for hardcore and doom metal bands. He moved to LA in 2015 due to his music not thriving in Southern Florida, giving up his employment at the same time.

Meeting up with JGRXXN, he joined his collective Schemaposse which included artists such as Craig Xen and the now-deceased Lil Peep. In April 2016, Schemaposse disbanded, leaving Ghostemane not associated with any group. He eventually began to associate with fellow Florida rapper Pouya. Their friendship resulted in '1000 Rounds', a song that has collected over 50 million streams across platforms.

October last year, he released 'N / O / I / S / E' (No One Is Safe from Evil). The record features a very dark and aggressive style and it deals a lot with self-harm, self-mutilation, agoraphobia, and many other issues Ghostemane has dealt with personally.
