Several of the featured tracks have earned the band platinum and gold certifications in the United States, including “ Mary On A Cross ” (platinum) and “ Square Hammer “, “ Cirice ” and “ Dance Macabre ” (all of which have gone gold.) Also nestled among the track listing is “ Zenith “, a b-side from the “ Meliora ” vinyl release.

GHOST's TOBIAS FORGE teases new music for 2023

It's always a good time to be a Ghost fan, because the band hardly ever goes a full year without releasing new music. Now that 2023 has rolled around, frontman Tobias Forge has begun teasing some fresh Ghost material, which could come out as early as May.

Ghost received high acclaim for their most recent (and perhaps most adventurous) album, Impera . The 2022 record was themed around the fall of empires, and was Ghost's fourth consecutive No. 1 album in their home country of Sweden. Arena tours soon followed, and Ghost will embark across Europe beginning in May before hitting North America with Amon Amarth this August.

While speaking with French radio station OUI FM, Forge was asked about the possibility of doing a "by request" tour in the vein of Metallica. The Ghost mastermind responded by talking about the changes fans can expect for Ghost's 2023 shows .

"Even though we're obviously changing things, it's more from a practical point of view," Tobias said, as transcribed by Loudwire . "This tour that we're starting [will see us] changing a few things around. The thing is that we always try to change things around, and now just because there has been, there are going to be a few changes. There might be, between now and then, there might be new music. Um, I'm just saying!"

"So, that's going to be a little bit different. It's going to be a different setup. If we ever do a 'by request' [tour] – in a way, I wouldn't be against doing a poll of what people want to hear … In the future, there might be an alternative that we've discussed, where it might come a time where we do a set that's completely different from the one we have now. Then, you can rework so that it's fluent with just the odd numbers."

Listen to Forge's entire interview below.

The fast-rising Swedish act’s hotly-anticipated new record will be out on March 11.

Published on


Grammy-winning Swedish theatrical rock outfit Ghost have announced the impending arrival of  Impera , their fifth full length studio album out March 11 via Loma Vista Recordings.

Impera  is heralded by today’s release of its first official single , the sublime and haunting “Call Me Little Sunshine,” available now across digital platforms—and as a phantasmagoric visual interpretation lensed by iconic director Matt Mahurin and starring Ruby Modine. You can watch it below.

The album will also feature “Hunter’s Moon,” Ghost’s fourth consecutive Active Rock No.1 radio single, as heard over the end credits of the horror smash  Halloween Kills —and manifesting physically in the form of a 7” vinyl single release this Friday, January 21.

Queensrÿche Book ‘Roads To Madness’ Set For March Release

‘sending that shiver down their backs’: a toast to motörhead’s lemmy, ‘not the actual events’: documenting nine inch nails’ brooding synth-rock.

Ghost - Call Me Little Sunshine (Official Music Video)

Impera  finds Ghost transported hundreds of years forward from the 14th century Europe Black Plague era of its previous album, 2018’s Best Rock Album, the Grammy-nominated Prequelle . The result is the most ambitious and lyrically incisive entry in the Ghost canon: Over the course of Impera’s 12-song cycle, empires rise and fall, would-be messiahs ply their hype (financial and spiritual alike), prophecies are foretold as the skies fill with celestial bodies divine and man-made… All in all, the most current and topical Ghost subject matter to date is set against a hypnotic and darkly colorful melodic backdrop making Impera a listen like no other, yet still quintessentially Ghost.

In support of Impera , Ghost  will kick off a co-headlining 26-date U.S. arena tour with Volbeat on January 25 , before arriving in the UK & Europe this April & May, compelled to take their dark extravaganza to arenas everywhere.  Branded the ‘Imperatour’, the trek will feature support across all UK & European shows by Uncle Acid & The Dead Beats and Twin Temple. The shows begin at Manchester Arena on April 9 and conclude on May 18 at the Budapest Arena in Hungary.

Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace,  Impera  consists of the following 12 songs:

“Imperium” “Kaisarion” “Spillways” “Call Me Little Sunshine” “Hunter’s Moon” “Watcher In The Sky” “Dominion” “Twenties” “Darkness At The Heart Of My Love” “Grift Wood” “Bite Of Passage” “Respite On The Spital Fields”

Pre-order Impera .
