New video footage has surfaced of The Ghost Inside drummer, Andrew Tkaczyk taking to the drums again for the first time since he lost his right leg in an road-traffic accident.

This six-minute clip shows 28-year-old Andrew staring in the face of adversity and getting back to what he loves - the drums.

It has been a long recovery period for The Ghost Inside drummer since the car accident which also claimed the lives of two other people as well as causing severe injuries to fellow band members.

Andrew said: "My attitude from the beginning has been 'no looking back.' I'm focused. I'm starting to walk and play drums again. My head is in the game.

I admit, I have my days, just like anyone. It's difficult. You notice these little things we all take for granted every day, like taking a shower or reaching the top shelf of the cupboard to grab a box of cereal - like walking. I've experienced the hardest way of realizing that. I just try to keep it positive."

Andrew is continuing with his rehabilitation to hopefully once again get back to playing the technical metalcore beats and rhythms The Ghost Inside are known for.
