Team Ghost is a French electronic music group created by Nicolas Fromageau, co-founder of M83, which he left in 2004.[1]

History[edit]

In Paris with the help of Jean-Philippe Talaga (who is the band A&R today) and bandmate Christophe Guérin, Nicolas Fromageau founded Team Ghost in 2007.[2][3] the band released their first EP in April 2010[4] First act to be coined as “cold gaze” by the NME (for their mixture of Cold Wave and Shoegaze),[5] Team Ghost released the EP "You Never Did Anything Wrong to Me",[6] in 2010 through the English label Sonic Cathedral. In the fall of that year, they followed it with the EP "Celebrate What You Can't See" produced by Villeneuve.[7] This collaboration resulted in Benoît de Villeneuve to join the band as composer together with bassist Pierre Blanc and drummer Félix Delacroix.[8]

After a series of concerts given in Paris, the group was the opening act of the European tour for the Canadians Crystal Castles.[9] Team Ghost has also played at several festivals in the United Kingdom during the summer of 2010 such as the Offset Festival[10] of London and the festival Rockness in Scotland.[11] The two first EPs were released as "We Will Shine" in Japan at the fall of 2011 [12]

Team Ghost released their first album Rituals on March 2013 and the first single is called "Dead Film Star".[13][14] They went on tour in April 2013 in Europe [15] and in New York on June.[16]

On December 2, 2016 they released their third, self titled and self released album,[17] preceded by the single "The Riser".[18]
