Merry Hell – New Ghost Video EP and Tour Dates

Merry HellWigan based folk-rockers, Merry Hell, release a new video and limited edition 4 track CD to tie in with their forthcoming tour and to herald the forthcoming album  The Ghost In Our House (and other stories) – coming in the new year.  The CD will be a free give away at gigs between now and Christmas but is also available to buy online from the band’s website.
The video was largely filmed at The Old Court Buildings in Wigan, where band member and producer John Kettle has his studio.  However, female lead singer, Virginia Kettle did have to walk in and out of the sea off the North Wales coast in order to obtain a number of shots. The storyline was developed by the whole band and shot and produced by fiddle player Neil McCartney.

Tracks on The Ghost EP are:

1: There’s A Ghost In our House
2: The Baker’s Daughter
3: Nobody Knows Me Like You
4: Rosanna’s Song

The first two tracks are from the forthcoming album, the third is unique to the EP and Rosanna's song, is a live version of the crowd favourite recorded at The Grand in Clitheroe.
