Ghosts of Jupiter are always on the march, as the last track off their 2013 EP, Green is Gold Vol 1 suggests. There’s heft to this Boston-based ensemble, who draw as much inspiration from the muscular, freewheeling hard rock of the 60s/70s as they do from the transcendent, psychedelic landscapes hatched from that same era. The music that Ghosts of Jupiter creates is alive in a way that echoes the vibrancy of their ancestors, yet manages to deliver a decidedly modern, smart and sexy sound.

Queue up their self-titled debut to hear a band who believes in rock’s power to explore and rejuvenate; a colorful, tough and tight ride into the outer reaches of the mind. The Boston-bred rock quintet partnered with the Museum of Science to create a new, eye-popping music entertainment show in the museum’s Charles Hayden Planetarium. Running each weekend throughout the end of 2013, “Ghosts of Jupiter: Music Experience” takes you on a fantastic ride into the outer reaches of the mind.

With their follow-up EP Green is Gold Vol 1 already heavy in the rotation, and a new feature-length album well underway in the studio, Ghosts of Jupiter continue to forge ahead with their powerful, gripping blend of psychedelic riff-rock. Nate Wilson (lead vocals, guitar, keyboards), Adam Terrell (lead guitar, vocals), Tommy “SteveDave” Lada (bass, vocals) and Thomas Arey (drums) combine grit and precision musicianship for a refreshing take on classic rock & roll sounds that made the legends.

Ghosts of Jupiter have already shared the stage with Blue Oyster Cult, moe., Buffalo Killers and Dead Meadow, and the journey has just begun as they look towards the release of more cosmic music and many mind-blowing shows to come.
