Ghost announce Euro tour part 1

Ghost have confirmed the first part of a European tour that takes place in November and December.

More dates are to be added for the road trip in support of third album Meliora. They’ll follow the band’s appearances at the Reading and Leeds festivals next month.

Ghost recently unveiled third frontman Papa Emeritus III, said to be the three-month-younger brother of predecessor Emeritus II. One of the outfit’s Nameless Ghouls last week spoke of their delight at having had the “BC” suffix removed from the band name in North American territories.

Meliora is released on August 21 via Spinefarm Records. Ghost are featured in the current edition of Classic Rock, on sale now.
