The Phantoms



Formed in Edinburgh in 2012 by four school friends, ThePhantoms released their debut EP This Is How It Should Be in December 2013 and followed this up with a short UK tour.

They are influenced by the likes of Kasabian and Simple Minds and are Colin Simpson on guitar and vocals, Colin Mckillop on lead guitar, Zach Tarimo Goodhur on bass and Blair Cullen on drums. 

The Phantoms then released the single Revolution in March 2014 whose anthemic  chorus has become a huge favourite with fans.

The band started 2016 with a sold out headline show at King Tuts Wah Wah Hut and now release the new single Lost on 4th April 2016. It's available to pre-order now on this link: The Phantoms - Lost on i-tunes 

They've filmed a video out in the wilds of Scotland to match the anthemic, atmospheric nature of the track. The Phantoms trademark driving guitar riffs are now finely honed and come to the fore in this latest offering. They've come a long way in the last three years since they played the Ralph's Life CD gig in Edinburgh's Electric Circus and 2016 is looking to be the start of something big for this ambitious young band.
