Ghost is gearing up to release the fourth studio album Prequelle scheduled for June 1. So far, the only preview that the band released to fans was the first single from the work, “Rats” that came with an insane clip.
But on the fourth day, Tobias Forge and company presented two previously unreleased tracks during a show at The Roxy in Hollywood. The show was the first of its new North American tour.
“Dance Macabre” and “Faith” bring in two opposite sides of the band, the first having influences on pop genres of which the chorus is often easy to remember while the latter brings a heavier side of Ghost.
Prequelle, Meliora’s successor (2015), will be released by Spinefarm / Loma Vista Recordings and is now available for pre-order.
The new album will mark the arrival of “Cardinal Copia”, the “new” vocalist who “replaces” Pope Emeritus III – the same singer changes personality from time to time.
Since last year, it is known that the man behind the mask is named Tobias Forge and that he is the leader of the project. The revelation came after four former members of the Nameless Ghouls, who have always had similar masks and clothing at the shows, have filed a lawsuit against the singer for a bigger share of the profits generated by the band.
