Unless you’ve been living under a church pew for the past couple years (which if you have, why are you even reading this? You should really look into fixing that) there’s a pretty good chance you’re familiar with the hard rock gaggle of ghouls otherwise known as Ghost.
Popular for their masked musicians and satirical religious-themed humor, led by an enigmatic frontman who now goes by Cardinal Copia, Ghost has slowly but surely made their way atop the heavy metal hierarchy – especially with the release of 2015′s critically acclaimed Meloria.
Now with a Grammy under their belt and a new album on the way (Prequelle, due out June 1st), Ghost is looking to make 2018 their biggest year yet. Starting things off strong, the Swedish outfit is currently out on tour taking their jaw-dropping Rats On The Road headliner all across North America.
“Tonight was my first time seeing Ghost and my life has forever changed,“ said one amazed showgoer. “And I hear Cardinal C is so much better than any of the Papas. He’s definitely my new hero.” Another astonished patron added, “I hope when I go to bed tonight, my dreams are just a replay of Ghost’s set. Mostly that part when they played ‘Cirice,’ I fuckin’ love that song.”
To see for yourself just how unbelievable Cardinal Copia and company are live on their current tour, make sure to check out some photos from their recent stop in Tucson, AZ. Afterward, make sure to not only pre-order the band’s new LP but also grab tickets to see them here.
