Florida industrial-trap artist Ghostemane has announced his debut trip to New Zealand will take place this May.
Best known for fusing the worlds of hip hop and metal together, Ghostemane is set to bring his infectious, genre-bending catalogue to Auckland.
The visit follows the release of his latest album, N / O / I / S / E (which stands for No One Is Safe from Evil), which dropped late 2018. Early reviews drew comparisons with the likes of Nine In Nails and early Slipknot.
In the last year, he’s toured alongside hardcore acts like Code Orange and Vein, proving his all-encompassing sound is as comfortable in the world of hip hop as it is in the mosh pit.
After starting out as the guitarist in hardcore and doom metal bands including Nemesis, Eric Whitney (who now makes music under the Ghostemane moniker) moved to Los Angeles where he found success as a rapper in the local underground scene.
Meeting up with JGRXXN, Whitney joined his collective Schemaposse, but after they disbanded Whitney eventually became associated with underground rap group $uicideboy$ and fellow Florida rapper Pouya.
