Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas recently conducted an interview with one of the Nameless Ghouls from Swedish occult rockers GHOST for the "Metal Hammer" radio show on TeamRock Radio. You can listen to the chat using the SoundCloud player below.
GHOST's new covers EP, "If You Have Ghost", will be released on November 19 via Loma Vista Recordings. The five-track EP was recorded and produced by Dave Grohl (FOO FIGHTERS, NIRVANA), and includes cover versions of songs by ROKY ERICKSON, ABBA, ARMY OF LOVERS and DEPECHE MODE, plus a live version of the GHOST offering "Secular Haze", recorded in Brooklyn earlier this year.
Outside North America (with the exception of Scandinavia), Spinefarm Records will be the new releasing partner for Loma Vista on all GHOST recordings, including the new EP and previous album. Spinefarm releases are distributed through Caroline/Universal in all territories, including the U.K., where a November 18 date has been confirmed for the release of "If You Have Ghost"; the EP release date in other territories will vary slightly.
"If You Have Ghost" will be available on CD, 12-inch vinyl and digitally. Those who pre-order the EP will receive an instant free download of "Secular Haze - Live".
The track listing for the effort is as follows:
01. If You Have Ghosts (ROKY ERICKSON cover)
02. I'm A Marionette (ABBA cover)
03. Crucified (ARMY OF LOVERS cover)
04. Waiting For The Night (DEPECHE MODE cover)
05. Secular Haze (live at Music Hall Of Williamsburg In Brooklyn, NY)
GHOST recently travelled to the U.S. to join AVENGED SEVENFOLD and DEFTONES for the "Hail To The King" tour; these dates — which ran until October 26 — marked the band's first proper U.S. outing since their "Haze Over America" trek earlier this year. GHOST also appeared at various music festivals across the U.S. this summer, including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Rock On The Range.
In Europe, GHOST has joined forces with ALICE IN CHAINS for a run of dates that started in the U.K. on November 9, before heading across to mainland Europe.
"Infestissumam" has sold around 41,000 copies in the United States since its April release.
The CD topped the official chart in the group's home country after selling nearly five times as many copies as the No. 2 album, MISS LI's "Wolves".
GHOST was forced to modify its name in the U.S. to GHOST B.C. for "legal reasons."
