Ghost announce US tour dates


Ghost have announced a string of tour dates across the United States in May.

The dates appeared on the band’s official Facebook Page, not long after the band blanked out all imagery on their social media accounts.

Last month, the band started to tease the introduction of a new Papa Emeritus in a Facebook video. In the clip, the recently revealed Papa Zero can be heard saying “I’m going to fucking wipe the floor with this guy. Not bad, but not good either. Pure shame.”

There has been no word as yet on who or what the new Papa is, but the below image has surfaced on the Instagram of Ghost fansite Children Of Ghost, suggesting a new look for the frontman.

Metal Hammer recently went into the studio with Ghost as they worked on their upcoming fourth album, where they told us the new album is “a very bright sounding record” and “a very heavy record… but not from a Metal Hammer point of view, meaning all metal through-and-through. But it’s a heavy record with a heavy theme. I think the overall ambience is very serious.”
