LINKÖPING, SWEDEN – February 4, 2013 – In the year of 13, the second phase of GHOST B.C. begins with the release of the sophomore psalm INFESTISSUMAM on April 9, 2013 on Loma Vista Recordings.  Papa Emeritus II succeeded Papa Emeritus at the conclusion of phase one in the year of 12, and the Nameless Ghouls joined him under the unholy church’s current moniker Ghost B.C. – (Modified from Ghost in the US for legal reasons). Make no mistake though. The rituals still demand the same reverence and praise, fortified through a delivery of sweetly satanic melodies, snaking distorted riffs, and vaudevillian keyboards.


GHOST B.C. have also announced their tour, Haze Over North America 2013, will bow at this year’s Coachella Valley Music & Arts Festival on April 14th and the Empire Polo Field in Indio, CA.  The band will also appear during the second weekend on April 21st. All fans subscribed to the Ghost B.C. mailing list before Tuesday, February 6th at 6:00 PM EST will be sent a password for access to an exclusive tour pre-sale to take place from February 6th – 7th. Tickets will be available for purchase to the general public beginning February 8th.  See below for a complete list of live dates.


Papa Emeritus II recently emerged on the 100th issue of Decibel Magazine for an extensive feature detailing the making of the forthcoming INFESTISSUMAM in which a nameless ghoul declared, “Regardless of your religious beliefs, we like to trigger the imagination of the listener so they can become a devout burner in Hell or a keen participant of devil worship for at least an hour or two. That’s the Ghost experience.” Said Decibel Editor in Chief Albert Mudrian, “For the cover of our 100th issue, we wanted to spotlight a band that embodies the ideals of the magazine: theatricality, black humor, love for both the past and present of extreme music. Ghost meets and exceeds all of those criteria, and we couldn’t be more excited to reveal the exclusive story of the making of their sophomore album. To purchase this issue directly, click HERE.

ABOUT GHOST B.C.: Hailing from Linköping, Sweden, Ghost B.C. formed in in 2008.  They released their heralded debut album,Opus Eponymous, on October 18, 2011. UK’s Metal Hammer praised the album saying it was “an arcane occult feast,” while this side of the pond Decibel Magazine hailed they “compel on pretty much every sensory level,” and the Village Voice proclaimed “Ghost is Swedish, heavy, and tasked with slicing your soul to bits–or at least your ears.”  In 2011, Ghost B.C. performed at the annual Download Festival in the United Kingdom.  The band’s fanbase began to swell and not long after added some of Hard Rock’s finest to this group.  Additionally that year, Ghost B.C. took part in the Defenders of Faith III tour with Trivium, In Flames and Rise to Remain.  In early 2012, they embarked on their first tour of the United States and later that year shared the stage with Mastodon and Opeth on their Heritage Hunter Tour in North America.  That summer the band was invited by Metallica’s James Hetfield to perform on the mainstage of Metallica’s first annual Orion Music + More festival.  Ghost will appear at the 2013 Soundwave Festival throughout Australia February 23rd – March 4th, Coachella on April 14th and 23rd, and will visit cities across the U.S. as part of the Haze Over North America 2013 Tour.
