Ghost release video for Meliora single He Is

Ghost have released a video for “He Is”, the fourth single from their 2015 album, “Meliora.”

Directed by Zev Deans, the clip marks the final track to be issued from the Swedish band’s third studio effort.

“Now we bid adieu to our third psalm,” says the group, “the party is over.”

“Meliora” delivered Ghost their first-ever US Top 10 when the project debuted on the Billboard 200 at No. 8.

The band won their first Grammy Award in the Best Metal performance category for the set’s lead single, “Cirice”, and a Swedish Grammis Award in the "Best Hard Rock/Metal Album" of the year category.

The record was followed last fall by the 2016 EP, “Popestar”, which made US history by becoming the first EP to land at No. 1 on the Billboard Top Rock Albums in the chart's 10-year history.

Ghost completed a summer North American tour with Iron Maiden and performed at Belgium’s Alcatraz Metal Festival and the UK’s Bloodstock Open Air event earlier this month.

Frontman Papa Emeritus made headlines recently when he officially unmasked himself during a radio interview with Swedish radio channel P1.
