Badflower has topped the Active Rock Radio Mediabase Chart with their first No. 1 single “Ghost.” The inaugural act on Big Machine/John Varvatos Records has captured audiences across the airwaves and online with the song’s thought-provoking video and lyrics that touch on the sober topic of suicide.

“I didn’t even think the song would make the album but to see the connection it has made with so many people has been amazing,” said Badflower frontman Josh Katz. “We have the most talented and dedicated team in the industry to thank for this. And all of you who connected with the song, requested it at your radio station, came to a show. So much love for everyone. Dream come true for sure. We’re ready for whatever comes next.”

The tune is available now at all digital and streaming services, and is currently on featured playlists such as Apple Music’s The New Rock and the A-List: Hard Rock, Spotify’s Rock This & The New Alt, as well as Amazon’s Introducing Rock. Pandora also ranked Badflower No. 1 on their Predictions Chart, which is determined by activity across all major social music sites.

The band is currently on the road supporting From Ashes To New’s The Future Is Now Tour 2018. Later this fall, they will support The Wrecks on their U.S. tour and select dates with A Perfect Circle while also headlining several shows and appearing at numerous music festivals. They will also join Nothing More’s The Truth Tour in 2019.
