GHOST's Nameless Ghoul: 'Some People Would Like To Know Who We Are'

Kaaos TV conducted an interview with one of the nameless ghouls from Swedish occult rockers GHOST August 5 performance at the Ilosaarirock festival in Joensuu, Finland. You can now watch the chat below.

Asked if he thinks people like the fact that the members of GHOST have managed to keep their real identities secret by wearing masks and hooded cassocks in all public appearances, the nameless ghoul said: "I think that people like the mystery, but I also think that some people would like to know who we are, and some people do, but they don't talk about it, because maybe they wanna be in the secret little club that they're part of, once they know. [I think it's] both: some people don't wanna know, some people are dying to know… Not dying, but they're curious, at least."

GHOST's third album, "Meliora", will be released on August 21 via Loma Vista Recordings. The follow-up to 2013's "Infestissumam" was helmed by Klas Åhlund, a prolific songwriter, producer and guitarist who is also a member of the Swedish rock band TEDDYBEARS, and was mixed by Andy Wallace (SLAYER, NIRVANA, SEPULTURA, LINKIN PARK, GUNS N' ROSES).

GHOST's June 3 warm-up show at at Doom in Linköping served as the group's live debut with their "new" singer, Papa Emeritus III, the three-month-younger brother of GHOST's previous frontman, Papa Emeritus II.

GHOST will embark on the "Black To The Future" North American headlining tour in the fall. The procession will begin at The Fillmore in Washington, D.C. on September 22.
