Ghost unplug for radio show

A still from the video

Ghost have performed an acoustic set for Texas radio station KLAQ.

They were in the US state for a show at El Paso’s Tricky Falls and dropped into the local station, where they performed their track Jigolo Har Megiddo from their 2013 album Infestissumam.

Frontman Papa Emeritus III says: “I’m sporting shades today because I have an eye infection. Come see us in the Fall and I’ll not wear them. We’ll have the full eye experience.”

Earlier this year, one of the band’s Nameless Ghouls insisted they never set out to shock people and reported that their next album could follow a sound similar to 2015’s Meliora.

Ghost’s run of US dates continues tonight with a set at the Varsity Theatre, Baton Rouge.
