Gungor Gear Up To Release Highly Anticipated ‘Ghosts Upon The Earth’

Gungor

The GRAMMY ® nominated group, Gungor, will release their latest record ‘Ghosts Upon The Earth’ in October 2011. The follow-up to the critically acclaimed ‘Beautiful Things’ project was composed as a full narrative celebrating both the beauty and frailty of existence.

Produced by the group’s namesake, Michael Gungor, ‘Ghosts Upon The Earth’ was primarily written by Michael and his wife Lisa who is also a featured vocalist in this musical collective. Recorded in numerous locations, including the Gungor’s home, the album also includes seventeen players, four additional vocalists, a six-person string ensemble and a boy’s choir. Inspiration for the album was orchestrated from Gungor’s weeklong meditation in Assisi where he was inspired by the Saint’s view of the world, as well as from the birth of their daughter last year.

‘Ghosts Upon The Earth’ takes its mysterious title from an allegory by C.S. Lewis titled ‘The Great Divorce’, in which the ‘ghosts’ of a grey town encounter a heaven that is astonishingly, even painfully, real. “Sometimes it seems like the most real thing is what we can see and experience with our senses around us – this life, the tangible,” explains Michael Gungor.

“Ideas like love, like God, these things sometimes feel more disconnected and ethereal, like that’s the ghostly realm. This is turning it on its head, recognizing that God is real, love is real, and we are the ghosts walking upon the earth, wanting to become more real.”

Known for their innovative live performance, Gungor will take to the road in Europe and perform at festivals and churches – this tour is not to missed.
