The song will be available for instant download for those who pre-order the album, along with the previously released track “Cirice.” Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls will return to North American this fall for their ‘Black To The Future’ headlining tour. The tour begins at The Fillmore in Washington, DC on September 22nd. See below for a complete itinerary.

A nameless ghoul (band member names for Ghost) said regarding the song:

We always have had a craving for a truly stomping riff-­based song, Led Zeppelin style. Something that would sound great coming out of a car stereo standing at an American high school parking lot. From The Pinnacle To The Pit

Ghost released their second album “Infestissuman” on April 16th, 2013 via Loma Vista Recordings. The 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 album, “one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013″ and Pitchfork praised its “addictive as sin” hooks. Rolling Stone described their sound 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. Ghost have toured the U.S. Extensively and appeared at various music festivals across the country, including Coachella, Lollapalooza, and Rock on the Range.

Early praise for Meliora include:

“A perfect occult Metal mass” 7 out of 7 – Metal Hammer

“The record is yet another creative giant leap forward for the group, mixing up in various and fascinating ways ’70s-era psychedelic and prog rock, unhinged doom metal and classic AOR balladry – all of it informed by a pronounced, sophisticated pop consciousness that yields ear candy-like hooks that last for days.” – Music Radar
