The Ghost Of A Thousand was an English five–piece punk rock/hardcore band from Brighton, UK.

In February 2009, it was announced that the band had signed with Epitaph Records to release their second album New Hopes, New Demonstrations. The album, recorded in Stockholm with experienced producer Pelle Gunnerfeldt (Refused, The Hives), was described by vocalist Tom Lacey as "very heavy, heavier than This Is Where The Fight Begins, but its whole feel is a lot sadder." The band have also played 3 songs for the BBC Radio 1 Rockshow at the Maida Vale studios. The band were due to play the Saturday headlining slot on the Red Bull stage at 2009's Download Festival, but pulled out due to family reasons. The band played the Reading and Leeds festivals and the Hevy Music Festival in 2009. They played the Rock Sound magazine sponsored stage at Guilfest 2009. They continued their extensive touring, culminating with the UK and European Eastpak sponsored Antidote Tour, alongside Alexisonfire, Anti–Flag and Four Year Strong. In March 2010, The Ghost Of A Thousand appeared at the Texan music festival South by Southwest and continued their touring schedule with a European tour with Cancer Bats, performing at Groezrock and more recently touring with The Bronx.

On Thursday 31 March 2011, it was announced the band were to split. Their last concert took place at Hevy Festival 2011, playing alongside bands such as Dillinger Escape Plan, Ceremony and November Coming Fire and Funeral for a Friend. On 17th October 2012 they were announced as support for the London dates of the Alexisonfire Farewell tour
