It was only a couple of months ago when I shared the news about Ghost’s “Ultimate Tour Named Death” in an announcement you can peruse HERE. Now on this all too typical Tuesday, the clergy has informed their ardent flock and followers in the media about additional dates on the run. Check it out down below.

The Press Release:
Seven new dates for the “Ultimate Tour Named Death,” Ghost’s six-week North American headline arena tour are announced, adding shows in Edmonton, Toledo, Moline, Youngstown, Huntington, Hamilton, and Ottawa. A series of ticket pre-sales begins today at 12 NOON local, and the public on-sale starts at 10 AM local this Friday, May 24. Log on to http://ghost-official.com for all pre-sale, VIP packages, and ticketing details. With Nothing More providing support for the tour and Twin Temple supporting on the 9/28 SLC date, the Frank Productions Concerts-produced Fall dates kick off on September 13 in Bakersfield, CA and run through to October 26 in Glens Falls, NY.

In support of this tour, “Faith,” the third single from Ghost’s GRAMMY-nominated album Prequelle, was the #1 Most Added track last week at Active Rock Radio with 36 adds, and this week, made the highest chart debut, coming in at #32. “Faith” follows Prequelle’s two previous singles, “Rats” and “Dance Macabre,” both of which held the #1 spot on the Active and Mainstream Rock Radio charts for multiple weeks. An eminently tight track with its relentless and melodic guitar solos and dark, torturous lyrics, “Faith” manifests Ghost creative force Tobias Forge’s flair for soaring stadium-size anthems.

Ghost Will Bring The Plague With “Rats” Official Video

Now that the Iron Maiden supporting slot is over and the band’s released a subsequent live album, it’s time to get some more new from the ever-enigmatic Ghost but first there are some changes to point out. If the video tells no lies, the dread Papa Emeritus III is gone and in his place – Cardinal Copia. The song is called “Rats” and here is the video

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So it’s hopefully clear that I am only discussing the video in this brief narrative and will get into the single itself at another time and if not there you go. Now I am clearly going to miss the efforts of P3 but this new Cardinal Copia sure seems younger and much more quick on his feet. The dance moves alone rival that of the late great Fred A-scare. The Nameless Ghouls all appear to be the same as the last go round but who really knows if they have been swapped and traded as needs aligned. The visuals here are of a rat infested city and the song is an anthem to them. I am not a fan of the rodents myself and see enough during the travels on the NYC subway system but outside of that I do love the Ghostettes (or whatever the dancers who we see in the clip are called). Farewell P3 and welcome to the fold Cardinal Copia. Did you enjoy the clip? You can legally download the single for this song from “Prequelle” via the link to Amazon.com down below.
