Spectres are a Post Punk band from Vancouver, B.C. originally formed largely as a studio only project by Brian Gustavson and Steve Hanker In Coombs, British Columbia.  After self releasing several demos both Gustavson and Hanker relocated to Vancouver and brought Heather and Nathan Szilagyi in on Drums and Bass, and Zach Batalden in on second guitar.  Heather Szilagyi would soon be replaced by Steve Gerenscer on drums, and after releasing two singles and touring the west coast with the Estranged Hanker would leave the band to be replaced by Tyler Pilling.  2010 saw the release of the band’s first full length LP, LAST DAYS which was followed in 2011 by a European tour and a split 7” with Arctic Flowers.  In 2012 the band released a ‘discography so far’ featuring previously unreleased material on Crysis records in Malaysia and also began work on their second LP, NOTHING TO NOWHERE.  This new project was Spectres most ambitious to date, with ten new songs that push the band’s sound in new directions.  NOTHING TO NOWHERE is a joint release, by Deranged records in North America and Sabotage records in Europe.
