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 autumn for their ‘Black To The Future’ headlining tour. The procession will begin at The Fillmore in Washington, DC on September 22nd with UK act Purson guesting on all shows.

Ghost released their second album INFESTISSUMAM on April 16th, 2013 via Loma Vista Recordings. This 10-song offering was produced by Grammy® Award-winning producer Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville, TN, and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. SPIN called the record, “one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013”, and Pitchfork praised its “addictive as sin” hooks. Rolling Stone described the sound of Ghost as “somewhere between Mastodon and Metallica, with a heavy dose of Swedish synth mixed in”.

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.
