The Holy Ghost’s “Worker’s Curse” Sympathizes With Those In Unrewarding Jobs

Sweden‘s The Holy Ghost will release their third studio album Ignore Alien Orders on September 22, 2023 via Lövely Records. Inspired by the American underground scene of the 80s and 90s, and bands like Hüsker Dü, Dinosaur Jr, Rites Of Spring, and The Replacements, the album features a mix of Punk, Rock and Post-Hardcore.

The third and final single leading up to the album is called ”Worker’s Curse”, out now, which calls on a relatable experience of working in a job that seems meaningless.

The band comments on ”Worker’s Curse”:

J Mascis / Dinosaur Jr is always a great source of inspiration, just in general, but it‘s especially evident in this song. It also has a very rocking chorus. A song about and for everyone who has a meaningless, shitty job they are forced to give eight hours a day to, year after year, and how hopeless and degraded you feel selling your time and labor so that someone else, never yourself, will become even richer.

Ignore Alien Orders was recorded in The Dustward, Stockholm, Sweden by Stefan Brändström, who also mastered the album.

The Holy Ghost’s members have been active in the underground music scene since the late 80’s, playing in bands like Ashram, Entombed and Trapdoor Fucking Exit to name just a few. Some of them also play in current bands like Haystack, Formications and Eye Make The Horizon.
