Ghost To Release Third Sacred Psalm Meliora

LINKÖPING, SWEDEN – JUNE 9, 2015 – Ghost have declared the release date of their
third sacred psalm, Meliora, would be August 21st on Loma Vista Recordings. The
body of work is the follow up to 2013’s heralded INFESTISSUMAM.

Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls today issued a message announcing their
return to North American to deliver their satanic melodies to audiences across the
continent this fall for their ‘Black To The Future’ headlining tour. The procession
will begin at The Fillmore in Washington, DC on September 22nd. Tickets for all
dates will be available for purchase beginning this Friday, June 12th at 10:00 AM
local time. See below for a complete itinerary.

Ghost released their second album INFESTISSUMAM on April 16th, 2013 via Loma Vista
Recordings. The 10-song offering was produced by Grammy® Award winning producer
Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville,
TN and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. SPIN called the album, “one
of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013” and Pitchfork praised its
“addictive
as sin” hooks. Rolling Stone described their sound as “somewhere between Mastodon
and Metallica, with a heavy dose of Swedish synth mixed in.” In November of 2013,
the band released If You Have Ghost, a five track EP recorded and produced by Dave
Grohl, including cover versions of songs by Roky Erickson, ABBA, Army of Lovers,
and Depeche Mode. Ghost have toured the U.S. Extensively and appeared at various
music festivals across the country, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Rock
on the Range.
