Ghost recruited a cowbell player for their two Texas dates.

The sixth Nameless Ghoul performed onstage during their shows at Lubbock’s City Bank Auditorium and San Antonio’s Aztec Theatre last week. The two shows saw the Swedish outfit add two older songs to their setlist, If You Have Ghosts and Elizabeth.

Ghost say: “While in Lubbock, Texas last night, Ghost brought back If You Have Ghosts. If you look closely you might just see a mystery sixth Ghoul on cowbell.”

In a second video shared by the Swedish band, in which frontman Papa Emeritus orders the Nameless Ghoul to climb down from a stage monitor, they say: “Papa does not seem that impressed with that Cowbell Ghoul. However, another amazing ritual in San Antonio.”

Watch videos featuring the mystery member below.

Meanwhile, a Nameless Ghoul recently explained why the evolution of the music industry and the focus on streaming services is actually “good” for music. They’re currently working on their fourth studio album.

We spent 5 minutes alone with Ghost and this is what we learned

Former news desk member Christina joined the team in late 2015 and although her time working on online rock news was fairly brief, she made a huge impact by contributing close to 1500 stories. Christina also interviewed artists including Deftones frontman Chino Moreno and worked at the Download festival. In late 2016, Christina left rock journalism to pursue a career in current affairs. That's proved to be a massive success and in 2021, she was named Local Weekly Feature Writer of the Year at the Scottish Press Awards.
