We are now Unifier.

Due to the unfortunate events surrounding the name Future Ghosts in the past week, we have elected to seek out a new name and brand for ourselves. We had originally hoped to come to some sort of understanding in a timely manner that would allow us to retrieve our sites and move forward. However, it became clear to us that there would be no quick or easy resolution, and also seemed apparent that we would not be taken to court over the issue.

Our only focus as a band should be to write, play and release music – goals which this situation was seriously obstructing. All of our plans for the release of the new album were being strained, and we did not want to push the date back any longer. Rather than waste any more time, we began work to find a new name, alter artwork, create new websites, and remove the sour taste from our mouths.

We present to you today, through AbsolutePunk.net, a song called “Shadows” from our upcoming full-length COLORADO, set to some footage of us doing the things we love. We felt the theme of the song was somewhat fitting, and hope that you will take advantage of the free download we are offering for it until the album’s release. We will also be offering a free download of our EP “Oh, Great City” in it’s entirety for the week.

Thank you all so much for the support you showed us during this last week. All of the input, whether positive or not, was ultimately appreciated and has brought us to an even more determined place as a band. As a name, Future Ghosts will forever tie us to an unsettling event in our careers, one that we do not wish to be solely known for. It simply does not hold the same personal meaning for us that it once did, so we want to distance ourselves from that relationship and move past it.

That being said, we have chosen to adopt the new name Unifier. Not only is it a powerful word in and of itself, it has taken on a special meaning to us now as well. Looking past the situation’s negative nature at all of the support we received, we see a result which is much more positive than we ever could have hoped for. Unifier pays homage to the new unity of the four of us as a band, as well as what we hope will become a greater unity of our fans and our home state’s music scene.

We ask that you continue to bear with us as we wait to hear back from a few of our remaining websites about name and URL changes, which we will of course keep you updated on. Again, thank you all endlessly.

With love,

-Unifier-

    Hey sorry to lay this on you so soon but my band has already trademarked that name sort of! Well actually it’s UNIFRIER which is not only way cooler but I think I can make the case that unifier would be confusing to my many fans and detrimental to my brand as UNIFRIER.

      • This officially my faovrite song. The voice is amazing, and the lyrics are powerful too. You guys playing in the living room tends to put a better feel on the music too; it let’s you know just where you’re coming from. I love that bass too, and the way it pops with the clap on the end. Very tastefully done guys. Keep it up!

    • This song could be better, I think the first cuorhs is amazing, but after that I don’t like the bridge with the piano, and then after instead of the cuorhs really coming back and kicking in, it just seems to slowly build up into the cuorhs therfore losing out on the awesomness of when it kicks in.When the build up got to the peak instead of it kicking in it just goes back down too.
