Ghost announce spring US tour

Swedish rockers Ghost have announced dates for a spring US tour in support of their forthcoming fourth album.

The month-long "Rats! On The Road" trek will begin in Riverside, CA on May 5, with shows scheduled to wrap up in St. Paul, MN on June 1.

Tickets and VIP packages for the spring US tour will go on sale Saturday, March 3 at Ghost-Official.com

Ghost are expected to release the follow-up to 2015's "Meliora" this spring; the set will introduce the group’s new frontman, Papa Emeritis Zero, who replaces outgoing singer Papa Emeritus III following his work on their third album and 2016’s "Popestar" EP.

The band recorded their fourth studio record last year at Artery Studios in Stockholm, Sweden with producer Tom Dalgety (Royal Blood, Opeth).

In December, Ghost surprise-released a digital version of their new live album, “Ceremony And Devotion”, ahead of its arrival last month via 2CD, 2LP and 8-track.

Recorded during Ghost’s 2017 world tour, the set was produced and mixed by Tom Dalgety and features fan favorites spanning the band's entire catalog.
