GHOST TO RELEASE FOURTH SACRED PSALM PREQUELLE
ON JUNE 1ST VIA LOMA VISTA RECORDINGS
LEAD SINGLE AND MUSIC VIDEO “RATS” AVAILABLE NOW

LINKÖPING, SWEDEN – APRIL 13, 2018 – Grammy® Award-winning band Ghost today announced their fourth sacred psalm Prequelle (pronounced prē-KWELL)will be released on June 1, 2018 via Loma Vista Recordings. Prequelle is available for pre-order starting today HERE.  Limited edition bundles featuring Colored Vinyl with 3D Lenticular Cover Art,  8-Track Cartridge, Cassette Tape, “Rats” die cut picturedisc, plague mask, musical eucharist case, pins, and more available exclusively in the Ghost Shop here HERE.

Fans have come along for the ride for years, not knowing for certain who was behind the anonymous band… that is, until Tobias Forge recently revealed himself as the man behind Ghost. Each album is more like a film release than a record release. In addition to serving as director, Forge conceives the role of every character, and oversees everything from the screenplay to video to wardrobe design to artwork to cinematography to soundtrack.

In an interesting twist in Ghost’s saga, Cardinal Copia has been appointed to take over vocal duties for the forthcoming psalm. Meet him HERE. Lyrically, Prequelle delves into the plague, the apocalypse, and dark ages. The entire body of work is also a snapshot of the world in which we live in on a daily basis, brought to life through an emotive, enlightening, and riveting body of songs.

Ghost today also shared Prequelle’s lead single “Rats” with an accompanying music video directed by Roboshobo. Watch the video HERE. “Rats” is available to stream and download now via iTunes, Apple Music, Spotify, Amazon, and Google Play. Fans who pre-order Prequelle will receive an instant download of the track.

Next month, Ghost will embark on a US tour that will kick off on May 5, 2018 in Riverside, CA, and visit US Cities throughout the Spring. Tickets for the Rats On The Road Tour are available now HERE. A complete list of upcoming live dates can be found below.

About The Author Kris Engelhart

I am a small business owner, freelance writer, and part-time piano instructor in Charlotte, NC. My musical career started at the age of five when I was forced into taking piano lessons. I played flute in the school band and added the guitar as a young teen. There is nothing I would rather do than be at a live show. My first concert was Shaun Cassidy at the Memorial Auditorium in Buffalo in 1978. My top five live shows ever are: 1. Bruce Springsteen and the E-Street Band – Memorial Auditorium, Buffalo, NY 1984- They played for 3 ½ hours and it was awesome. 2. Carolina Rebellion- Metrolina Expo Grounds, Charlotte, NC, May, 2011 – The first ever Carolina Rebellion featured over 15 bands with Avenged Sevenfold headlining. Non-stop music for over 12 hours. 3. Chevelle- Food Lion Speed Street, Charlotte, NC, May, 2008 - The first time I ever saw Chevelle live and I was hooked! 4. Skillet with Red- Bojangle’s Coliseum, Charlotte, NC, April, 2010 – Skillet is one of my favorite bands and they totally kick it live. 5. 106.5 The End’s Weenie Roast #9- Verizon Wireless Amiptheater, Charlotte, NC , October, 2003- Featured Staind, Shinedown, Three Days Grace.
