Ghost to re-energize with EP


Ghost are aiming to launch an EP before the end of the year, one of the band’s Nameless Ghouls has revealed.

It’ll be their first release since third album Meliora arrived last year, and their second EP after 2013’s If You Have Ghost.

The Ghoul tells MetalSucks: “Our European tour starts on May 27 and that stretches into the beginning of July.

“After that we have an EP coming out. That’s going to be great – it’s going to re-energise the whole cycle.”

He adds: “There’s going to be some new material. We’re going to have a new stage show, a completely different setting. We’re going to terrorise you with that up until next year.”

The band’s longevity was the subject of discussion last year – now the Ghoul says: “I happen to be in Ghost right now and this is probably the most accomplished thing I’ll ever do. But, of course, I want to do other things in my life.”

Their upcoming tour dates include an appearance at this year’s Download festival at Donington on June 12.
