The Ghost Of A Thousand album launch night.

Bloomsbury Lanes in Central London played host to the Ghost Of A Thousand album launch last night. The free to get into show was jam packed all night, as attendees got to watch blistering performances from Warship, Outcry Collective, and of course The Ghost Of A Thousand. Kerrang and Criminal Damage DJ's kept the punters entertained 'til the small hours when the venue was finally drunk dry.

Here's some of our fave pics from the night...

Terrible band - GREAT shirt.

Merch awesomeness.

Katie P and Daniel P. Carter - Rock star poses.

TGOAT tearing it up.

The Computers frontman Alex - Style guru.

Adam and Neil from Shotgun Riot kicking back.
