The Ghost Frequency were a UK band signed to the label City Rockers.

The Ghost Frequency formed in a bedroom in Spring 2005 and begun writing songs and recording demos on a 4 track recorder. Drummer Ben Chetwood joined the band in November of that year and the band began rehearsing for live shows in 2006. After a year of writing and gigging, the band were signed up by City Rockers and begun work on their debut single 'Nightmare' which was released as a limited edition 7" red vinyl in August 2007, with the accompanying video becoming a favourite on the MTV2 channel as well as on YouTube. The band received extensive coverage in the music press and online, including an article in NME's coveted Radar Section.

The band toured the UK throughout the autumn, including joining Hadouken! on their UK tour as main support.

On December 10, 2007 The Ghost Frequency released their second single 'Never Before Have I Seen A Man Alive That Looks So Exactly Like A Skeleton', again on limited edition 7" vinyl. The band recorded a suitable macabre video as a promo clip for the song, which received play on MTV2, NME TV, and E4 music among others, and was again popular on YouTube. The single was also popular on Radio 1 receiving the support of DJ Zane Lowe, and XFM's John Kennedy among others.

In December 2007, the single 'Nightmare' was voted 2nd in NME's club chart of the year, the band were also tipped in other magazines' "Tips for 2008" section.

In Spring of 2008 drummer Ben Chetwood left the band, and was replaced by Jason Adelinia.
