Ghost to launch Meliora with unplugged US record store tour

Ghost will launch their third album, “Meliora”, with an unplugged tour of US record stores this month.

The Unholy/Unplugged trek sees the band hit five US cities – Seattle, Los Angles, Phoenix, Baltimore and Brooklyn – where they will perform material from the project, which will be released on August 21.

The intimate acoustic performances will be followed a month later by the Black To The Future North American tour, which begins at The Fillmore in Washington, DC on September 22.

“Meliora” presents the debut of new vocalist Papa Emeritus III alongside the Nameless Ghouls following the resignation of his three-month older brother Papa Emeritus II.

Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace (Slayer, Nirvana, Guns N’ Roses, Linkin Park), ”Meliora” is the follow-up to the band’s second album and major label debut, 2013’s “Infestissumam.”
