It’s only few days until Swedish occult rock band Ghost release their new album “Prequelle” on June 1st. The Band has been touring since may 5th and we’ve seen their new front man Cardinal Copia and the reinstatement of all three Papas during the “Rats On The Road!” Tour .
Tobias Forge promised his group will be bigger and better for the tour and to those who haven’t seen them a live yet, here we can see that there are actually seven ghouls! Or Ghouls & The Ghoulettes .
What do you think this new line up? Is it better or ?
Ghost‘s new album Prequelle is out on June 1 and the band start North American tour on May 5 in Riverside, Calif. Also band announce first ever Arena shows as a headliner.
“It will definitely be an upgrade,” Forge, who will be introducing his new character Cardinal Copia, tells Billboard.”
“We have a bigger band now in terms of personnel,” Forge says, “so it’s way more live now. Before we were doing a little bit of the modern trickery, with backing tracks and stuff to make the whole sound a certain way. Now we’re taking that away so we’re a little more like a Springsteen or Guns N’ Roses sort of band with backup singers and everything. It feels great. It’s gonna be the best version yet — but there’s still a lot to come after that.”
GHOST have released a New video announcing the reinstatement of all three Papas.
Papa Emeritus I, II & III are dead and the embalmed bodies to be displayed during 2018 tour.
Grammy® Award-winning band Ghost today announced their fourth sacred psalm Prequelle (pronounced prē-KWELL) will be released on June 1, 2018 via Spinefarm/Loma Vista Recordings. Prequelle is available for pre-order starting today HERE. Limited edition bundles including 8-Tracks, Casettes and more are available exclusively in the Ghost shop HERE.
Fans have come along for the ride for years, not knowing for certain who was behind the anonymous band… that is, until Tobias Forge recently revealed himself as the man behind Ghost. Each album is more like a film release than a record release. In addition to serving as director, Forge conceives the role of every character, and oversees everything from the screenplay to video to wardrobe design to artwork to cinematography to soundtrack.
In an interesting twist in Ghost’s saga, Cardinal Copia has been appointed to take over vocal duties for the forthcoming psalm. Meet him HERE. Lyrically, Prequelle delves into the plague, the apocalypse, and dark ages. The entire body of work is also a snapshot of the world in which we live in on a daily basis, brought to life through an emotive, enlightening, and riveting body of songs.
Cardinal moves like Christopher Walken , not sure if the fatboy slip video inspired.
Pre-order for the full album is available via hotstuff.se
