THE GHOST INSIDE // Drummer Andrew Tkaczyk Debuts Djent Disc, ‘Coma Visions’


Andrew Tkaczyk, drummer for American hardcore wonder-kids The Ghost Inside has released a new djent-inspired EP called Coma Visions, under the One Decade name. Listen to Depth below:

This is the first new music from a member of The Ghost Inside since recovering from their horror bus smash in November 2015. Tkaczyk himself was severely injured, requiring amputation of his right leg.

Tkaczyk has released the entire album for free on YouTube, as well as Spotify and other major music retailers.

I’m honestly so excited to have this out and for people the be able to hear it. The EP just went live on YouTube as well if you want to listen for free,” Tkaczyk wrote on an Instagram post (see below.) “I’m not trying to make a bunch of money off this, I just want it to be heard! Either way it’s MUCH appreciated and I can’t thank you all enough for your support.”

He also stated his involvement in the One Decade project does not mean a departure from The Ghost Inside.



“First of all I just want to make it very clear, that this does not mean that I am giving up on TGI. That couldn’t be further from the truth. This is just something I have done to keep myself busy in all this downtime since [the bus crash.]”

On the morning of 19th of November 2015, The Ghost Inside’s tour bus collided with a 18-wheeler truck. The crash occurred at mile marker 63, just past the Border Patrol checkpoint, 38 kilometres East of El Paso. The drivers of the two vehicles died in the collision.

Tkaczyk was hospitalised and remained in a coma for over ten days. He sustained fractures in his spine, ribs and hip, along with several other injuries.


I just wanted to say a few things since @onedecadeband EP went live around midnight last night. First of all it hasn’t even been a full day and the feedback has been overwhelmingly positive. I’m honestly so excited to have this out and for people the be able to hear it. The EP just went live on YouTube as well if you want to listen for free. I’m not trying to make a bunch of money off this, I just want it to be heard! Either way it’s MUCH appreciated and I can’t thank you all enough for your support. First of all I just want to make it very clear, that this does not mean that I am giving up on TGI. That couldn’t be further from the truth. This is just something I have done to keep myself busy in all this downtime since 11/19/15. Thanks to my guys for having my back and supporting me with this release @jonathanvigil @thejimriley @zachjaydtd @chris_tgi and thanks to @flysouthmusicgroup and @epitaphrecords for supporting my decision to do this solo as well. Also, I did not physically perform the drums on this record. I wrote and programmed the MIDI using @getgooddrums so thank you guys again for that! The artwork was done by my long time friend @chrisrubey He’s been my go to guy for artwork literally since I started releasing music even One Decade ago 😉. There are a few little easter eggs hiding in the artwork. Can you spot them all? Thank you Chris for all your help with this. I hope people continue to listen to this and enjoy it. It has helped me through the unimaginable, and even though there’s no lyrical content, I feel that the music is strong and passionate. Use it as your outlet to focus in dark times. As long as you like it, I will keep making more 1D records in the future. Seriously thanks for listening everyone. Love you all ❤️
