Entertainment For The End Times is the debut album by Austin, TX and Missoula, MT-based power pop band Mrs. Ghost. The 11 track album, with moments ranging from Bob Dylan-esque acoustic singer-songwriter moments to fast-paced tracks like Jimmy Eat World’s early 2000s output, is the culmination of band members Jacob Godbey’s and Sean Larichiuta’s contrasting personal tastes coming together in an extremely complimentary way. It is an album with elements that are enjoyable for fans of stripped-down sets, aggressive rock, and everyone in between. Formed in 2019 in Austin, TX, Mrs. Ghost emulates all of the great dual-vocalist bands including Blink-182, Less Than Jake, and The Menzingers. Also heavily influenced by Alkaline Trio, Mrs. Ghost brings a unique blend of singer-songwriter style acoustic grooves and pop punk riffs to the table, while touching many bases in between. Mrs. Ghost is Sean Larichiuta on guitar and vocals & Jacob Godbey on drums, bass, vocals, and guitar, with both writing and programming. Larichiuta, based in Austin, and Godbey, based in Missoula, actively write and record primarily remotely. With a history of hosting livestreams before it was 2020-cool, Mrs. Ghost has long been at home in a technologically, if not physically, connected world.
