Today, multi-Grammy-nominated Swedish rock band Ghost releases “Chapter 6:  The Visit,” the latest video in the band’s narrative webisode series.  In “Chapter 5:  The Call,” Sister Imperator, who was recuperating from a horrible car crash, discussed the merits and failings of “The Omen” feature film franchise while on the phone with Papa Nihil.  In “Chapter 6:  The Visit,” the story continues.  Check it out HERE.
Twenty-nineteen is already looking to be a stellar year for Ghost.  Following the band’s critically-acclaimed Fall 2018 North American tour where the itinerary included the band’s first headline – and sold out – arena shows – the Los Angeles Forum and Montreal’s Place Bell – Ghost will take its “A Pale Tour Named Death” to Europe, launching on February 3 in Lyon, France.  Front man Cardinal Copia will take a short break for a quick trip to Los Angeles where he will attend The Grammys on February 10 as the band is nominated in two categories:  Best Rock Album for Prequelle and Best Rock Song for “Rats,” the song that held the 2018 record for most weeks at #1 at Rock Radio, a total of eight.  In 2016, Ghost took home its first Grammy for its song “Circe” as “Best Metal Performance.”  This summer, Ghost will be Special Guest on all four legs of Metallica’s “Worldwired” European Stadium tour that starts May 1 in Lisbon, Portugal.
