Those purveyors of evil are set to release their third full length and tour the US

Sweden's Ghost have declared that the release date of their third sacred psalm, Meliora, would be August 21st on Spinefarm Records / Loma Vista Recordings / Caroline Australia

This body of work is the follow up to 2013’s much-heralded Infestissumam and is available for pre-order here. Fans who pre-order the album will receive a complimentary download of album track Cirice. Late last month the congregation revealed a video of the summoning of Papa III

Ghost have also revealed a brand-new music video for Cirice, directed by Roboshobo.

Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls today issued a message announcing their return to North America to deliver their satanic melodies to audiences across the continent this fall for their Black To The Future headlining tour. 

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, and debuted at #1 on the US iTunes Rock Album Chart. 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 extensively, and appeared at various music festivals including Big Day Out, Soundwave, Coachella and Lollapalooza.
