“”The Ghosts We Will Become” was written the week before we went into the studio to record,” guitarist Chris Chasse tells “It also ended up being the title of the album. Sometimes, just playing the right guitar with the right tone gets me in a creative mood. I had just finished setting up my 74′ Gibson LP Custom (20th Anniversary Edition) and was just making sure everything was right, when I realized i had written an entire song. I laid down a quick demo to show the rest of the band, and the song was ready for the studio. We’re psyched with the outcome of the track and the fact that it is a nonstop, high energy, guitar driven song.”

Nations Afire are a four piece band that features current and former members of some of the most influential punk and hardcore bands from the past decade. Guitarist Chris Chasse has an impressive resume that includes a tenure with Rise Against (Siren Song of the Counter Culture ‘04 and The Sufferer & the Witness ’06). Vocalist/guitarist Nik Hill and bassist Brett Rasmussen are both long standing members of the Orange County hardcore outfit Ignite and drummer Todd Hennig was the percussive force behind Death By Stereo for three albums.
