Ghost Reveal New Album and Give Glimpse into The Apocalypse With Rats Music Video
Ghost Announce New Album and Reveal Rats Music Video
Ghost have been teasing new things for the last few weeks and, finally, they have unveiled their latest offering. A few days ago the band announced Papa Emeritus III’s successor Cardinal Copia, and now we have even more to look forward too.
The Grammy Award winning Ghost have taken fans on a wild ride for the last few years, keeping fans guessing who was behind the band – until last year when frontman and mastermind Tobias Forge revealed himself. For those who don’t know, the band Ghost have been known to make a spectacle with every new release. Tobias and company never break character and use teaser videos and cryptic messages to get the energy pumping for new announcements.
Now in 2018 Ghost have returned and they’re blessing us with their fourth album Prequelle, which will be released on June 1st, 2018 via their record label Loma Vista Recordings. The album is available for pre-order today HERE and comes in various formats and bundles.
Along with the announcement of a new album has come a music video for the single “Rats”. The music video is directed by Roboshobo and features Cardinal Copia dressed in a suit and prancing around what appears to be the apocalypse with corpses in body bags laying in the streets. The song is well produced and even features an insanely cool guitar solo by a nameless ghoul. The sound is catchier and more mainstream than anything Ghost has previously released and I’m looking forward to hearing the full record. Check out the music video for “Rats” below, and the song is available for purchase now with pre-order right HERE.
