After years of trying to start bands but failing to find anyone serious about music, Sean Shepard at the age of 20 decided to go it alone in the studio and record some songs that he had written over the years. The result was a six song EP he titled Wolves & Sheep under the band name Antighost. The EP was recorded at Raydon Studio in Albion, MI and it was released in August of the same year.
Shepard then used the EP to find musicians interested in forming a band. In October he met and auditioned Dylan Vanderson (Drums) and recruited former classmate Jake Rzeppa (bass) who became the rest of Antighost.
Antighost’s debut EP was exploding on the airwaves, getting played all across the country. Being based out of Grand Rapids, Michigan, word quickly spread of Antighost’s high energy and raw presence. The band has worked tirelessly to perfect their performance and sound, bringing forth a new wave of alternative rock rooted in the grunge, emo and punk eras.
