Since the release of the band's 2011 recording Classic Soundtracks Vol. 1, SPINDRIFT has been hard at work crafting an album -- and film -- about their fascination with the Wild West. The origins of the Ghost of the West album started when Kirpatrick Thomas and bassist David Koenig (ex-The Brian Jonestown Massacre) would entertain remaining stragglers with old acoustic campfire ballads after SPINDRIFT shows in Joshua Tree, California. Pioneertown, CA to be exact (the birthplace of Roy Rogers, Gene Autry, and The Sons of the Pioneers).

While SPINDRIFT's previous album and film combo The Legend of God's Gun (2008) was a Grindhouse Psychedelic Spaghetti Western Rock 'N' Roll masterpiece, Ghost of the West picks up on the more factual "real" forgotten past of the old West, bringing that ghostly history back to life!
