The band’s founders, Chris Campbell and Nick Black recorded and produced a new collection of songs which weaves a morbid tale of two lovers whose affair will not end in death. Sick Figures maintains their raucous, saloonish type of Rock and Roll but evokes a more dark and eerie mood. The recording highlands the talents of Erich Netherton (drums),Paul Pfeilschiefter (bass), Jeremy Dollar (drums, percussion), and Monica Arrington(backing vocals).
Those who have waited for Sick Figures newest release will not be disappointed. Two Ghosts will satisify loyal fans’ need for funloving debauchery while luring new fans in with macabre tunes of love and loving. Either way, Sick Figures takes listeners on a rollercoater ride of their lives.

Sick Figures is a band driven by the songwriting skills of Chris Campbell and Nick Black and also includes Erich Netherton (drums), Paul Pfeilschiefler (bass), Jeremy Dollar (drums, percussion), and Monica Arrington (backing vocals). These folks play a brand of alternative guitar pop/rock with odd hints of Pirate swagger threaded into the mix. Two Ghosts is the second full-length release from these folks...and it's a HIT. The songs on this album deal with "a morbid tale of two lovers whose affair will not end in death." Smart songs...unique vocals...interesting lyrics...and a nice bright direct sound...what more could you ask for? The more we spin this one the more impressed we are. These folks have quickly developed a sound and style that is all their own. Kickass cuts include "Mad," "Murdercycleaire" (a particularly strong track), "Never Change," and "The Whiskey Song." Totally cool stuff from start to finish. TOP PICK.

I’m genuinely surprised by how much I gravitated towards this record. Chris Campbell and Nick Black take vaudeville and old-time saloon music and fuse them with bits and pieces of classic rock, folk and blues. It sounds gimmicky at first, but the duo’s ability to transport the listener into the heart of their morbid tales of love and loss is what makes Two Ghosts so compelling. Add in a dash of macabre wit and a healthy dose of punk cabaret spirit and you have the makings for one of the year’s most unique listens.
