GHOST, the Swedish devil worshiping ministry that uses rock music to force their beliefs on mankind, just released a new song!
‘Rats‘ is the first single off their upcoming opus, the first to feature their newest leader Cardinal Copia. Listen to the ‘Rats’ on the band’s official website, HERE!
Recently, GHOST revealed their new leader Cardinal Copia via a comedic YouTube video titled ‘Chapter Two: The Cardinal’. Check it out:
The last Papa, Papa Emeritus III, was forcibly taken from the stage during the final show of the band’s “Meliora” tour cycle last fall, with Papa Zero arrived to announce the beginning of “the Middle Ages.” Of course, all the Papas — except the elder Zero — are the same man, GHOST founder and vocalist Tobias Forge.
Forge‘s new alter ego is expected to make his official live debut on May 5 as the Swedish band kicks off a run of North American dates in Riverside, California.
The “Rats On The Road” trek, as it’s called, will be in support of the group’s fourth studio LP, which is tentatively due in June via Loma Vista Recordings. The disc was recorded last year at Artery studios in Stockholm with producer Tom Dalgety (OPETH, ROYAL BLOOD) and was mixed in January at Westlake Studios in West Hollywood, California with Andy Wallace(NIRVANA, SLAYER). Songtitles set to appear on the LP include “Rats”, “Life Eternal”, “Faith” and “Dance Macabre”.
“Rats”, the album’s first single, is expected to arrive later this month.
GHOST will kick off a U.S. tour on May 5 in Riverside, California.
