GHOST‘s hugely successful “A Pale Tour Named Death” North American tour visited nearly 40 cities, including Chicago, New York, Los Angeles and Toronto.
GHOST has been on the road in support of its latest album, “Prequelle”, which came out in June 2018.
GHOST leader Tobias Forge performed as a “new” Papa Emeritus on each of the band’s first three albums, with each version of Papa replacing the one that came before it. Papa Emeritus III was retired in favor of Cardinal Copia before the release of “Prequelle”.
“Prequelle” debuted at No. 3 on the Billboard 200 and features the chart-topping rock single “Rats”. The disc was tracked last year at Artery studios in Stockholm with producer Tom Dalgety (OPETH, ROYAL BLOOD) and mixed in January at Westlake Studios in West Hollywood, California with Andy Wallace (NIRVANA, SLAYER).
Last month, GHOST nabbed two new Grammy nominations, “Best Rock Album” for “Prequelle” and Best Rock Song for “Rats”. The latest nods took place nearly three years after GHOST became the first Swedish rock band ever to win a Grammy Award — 2016’s “Best Metal Performance” for the song “Cirice”.
