Massachusetts metalcore band Ligeia burst onto the scene in 2004 with their Ferret Records debut, Your Ghost Is A Gift, and toured relentlessly in support of it. Known for a raucous live show, and a penchant for hard partying the band would use those experiences to pen their follow up album, Bad News. With songs about breakups, drinking and other raunchy themes, the band would ultimately be their own worst enemies, with several lineup changes, the band broke up in 2009 only to reform in 2010 to put out 2011’s Welcome to Palm city, before breaking up again later that year.
Ligeia guitarist Ryan Ober joins the BREWtally Speaking Podcast to talk about the bands beginnings, and opens up about how the band squandered every opportunity it ever got along their tumultuous career, but how their tireless DIY attitude also afford them a career in the first place. It’s a real raw and honest look into a band that never could get out of their own way to enjoy the successes that always eluded them.
