GHXST is a New York based noise grunge trio composed of Shelley X, Chris Wild and Nathan La Guerra. With influences such as the Jesus and Mary Chain, White Zombie, and Sonic Youth, they evoke the rockin’ 90s with a new kind of stylish noise rock, full of killer distortion, bluesy vocals, and heavy drums.
Following the release of EVILWICKEDDESIRE, which compiled their first two EPs (EVIL’S WASTED ON YOU and NO REST FOR THE WICKED) on vinyl LP last year via Paris-based Desire Records, GHXST have announced a UK tour in June and are giving away a free taster of their new material through London’s Club.The.Mammoth and Tip Top Recordings.

“GHXST are a dark crew who take the cold wave underground’s technology and dynamic and cloak it in more stabbing noise drapes… Great stuff” Rough Trade Shops
“The precision industrial rock guitar and drums in the heavier songs really do recall that late ’90s White Zombie/NIN-influenced robotically polished sound, but when they take things down a notch and let things get driftier it’s a much more haunted and modern sound altogether.” Norman Records UK
