The transmission was hazy but it was coming in nonetheless. Thanks to the hard work of dedicated acolytes of our own, we have snared visual of a secret meeting of the sinister powers that be behind the band Ghost. Watch the clip below. If you dare……
The Summoning VII: Are You Ready
LINKÖPING, SWEDEN- NOVEMBER 14, 2016 – Grammy® Award-winning band Ghost have unveiled a new clip entitled The Summoning VII: Are You Ready in the wake of the conclusion of their critically acclaimed 41-city headlining U.S. Popestar tour, which included sold out shows from coast to coast. Brooklyn Vegan raved “They are unquestionably the live band they’ve always been aiming to be; a huge one”; Vegas Seven described the ritual as “Visually arresting, musically stunning and darker than midnight”; and Denver Post called it “the ultimate iconoclastic show.” Continue reading Ghost Unveils “The Summoning VII”; Are You Ready?→
Back in the middle of June, the band Ghost announced their “Popestar Tour 2016” and if you missed that post just click HERE to be up to speed. Earlier today, those lucky ducks at SiriusXM and their morning host Grant Random got to speak to one of the Nameless Ghouls who shared a brand new track from the band called “Square Hammer”. Click below to hear the song without any of the brief interview discussion. It’s sooooo good. Trust me.
Do you love it? I know you do. I know that I sure did and I was singing along with the chorus after only a single listen. Of course I have set it to repeat while I am typing this for your attention so its not going to be long before I know the whole tune. It’s the first idea that we fans have about what is coming on their “Popestar” EP. You can be rest assured that I will be adding a review of that to our stockpile of narratives. Ghost remains a juggernaut of a group and their appeal seems to grow stronger with each release. Some feel that they are going to be on “Saturday Night Live” in the new season and since they already did “The Late Show” I don’t see why not. It will give me a reason to actually watch the show since I haven’t done so in more than a decade. What did you think of the new track? You can let me know in the comments down below while you enjoy it. If you should want to send some traffic love to the SiriusXM Blog for showcasing the tune in the first place you can click HERE.
Are you among the believers yet? Have you joined into The Flock and are now consumed by the macabre majesty that is the band Ghost? If not then I am happy to share with you that there is still time for you to atone into these sins because the band shall be returning to “bless us” with their brand of darkness in the Fall. They’re calling this run over North America as “The Popestar Tour” and there are 36 blasphemous dates to choose from. Go once, go twice or thrice. Just make sure you go and bear witness to the happening. Last year the band released the album “Meliora” and they even won a Grammy Award for the “Best Metal Performance” with the song “Cirice” from that album. There is no denying their hypnotic and arcane powers. It’s only a matter of time before all fall under their thrall so you might as well not wait any longer to convert during one of their shows. They are closing this run at the Kings Theatre in Brooklyn and as I write this I have not been there yet. I am going to be checking out Whitesnake there in a few days but right now this is a brand new space for me to see a band. If it’s an old massive theater then a band like Ghost should go over quite well. I wouldn’t wait on getting yourself tickets either since the band generally sells out quick.
Tickets will go on sale beginning June 17 at 10AM local time. Even more exciting, tickets purchased for select shows will include a digital download of new music that will be made available the day Ghost’s fall rituals are set to begin. The new music being offered will likely be featured on Ghost’s upcoming EP. Continue reading Ghost Announces US Return For Fall “Popestar Tour” 2016→
