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 B.C. recently wrapped up their Haze Over North America Tour and will return to the U.S. in July for additional dates and an appearance at Lollapalooza.
