“One of the most exciting bands on the worldwide hard rock stage.” Entertainment Weekly
“All hail Ghost and its masterwork, Meliora.” Metal Injection
“Ghost is back cracking skulls.” Noisey

Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls have spent the past two months in North America delivering their satanic melodies to audiences across the continent as part of their ‘Black To The Future’ headlining tour, selling out rituals in New York City, Los Angeles, Chicago, Seattle, Philadelphia, Detroit, Portland, San Antonio, Denver, Orlando, and Columbus along the way. The Philadelphia Inquirer praised the live show for its “zealously contagious mix of creepy power-balladry and clarion-clean epic rockers” while Toronto Now declared, “Papa and his five nameless ghouls hit us with back-to-back gems that sounded pristine and powerful.” LA Record echoed the sentiment, complimenting the band’s “evil brand of hook-driven hard rock.” The procession wraps up tonight at The North Park Theatre in San Diego, CA.
Ghost released their second album INFESTISSUMAM on April 16th, 2013 via Loma Vista Recordings. The 10-song offering was produced by Grammy® Award winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville, TN and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. SPIN called the album, “one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013” and Pitchfork praised its “addictive as sin” hooks. Rolling Stone described their sound as “somewhere between Mastodon and Metallica, with a heavy dose of Swedish synth mixed in.” In November of 2013, the band released If You Have Ghost, a five track EP recorded and produced by Dave Grohl, including cover versions of songs by Roky Erickson, ABBA, Army of Lovers, and Depeche Mode. Ghost have toured the U.S. Extensively and appeared at various music festivals across the country, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Rock on the Range.
