Video: GHOST Performs Three-Song Acoustic Set At Sweden's BANDIT ROCK AWARDS

Swedish occult rockers GHOST played a three-song acoustic set at this year's Bandit Rock Awards on January 19 at Hard Rock Café in Stockholm, Sweden. You can now watch professionally filmed video footage of the performance — featuring the songs "Jigolo Har Megiddo", "He Is" and "If You Have Ghosts" — below.

GHOST is among the nominees for the 58th annual Grammy Awards, which will be held on February 15 at Staples Center in Los Angeles and broadcast on CBS at 8 p.m. ET. GHOST is nominated for the song "Cirice", from the band's third album, "Meliora".

"Meliora" entered The Billboard 200 chart at position No. 8 with first-week sales of just over 29,000 units — nearly all from pure album sales. The set follows the No. 28-peaking "Infestissumam", which was released in 2013 and has sold almost 70,000 copes in the U.S. to date.

The Billboard 200 chart ranks the most popular albums of the week based on multi-metric consumption, which includes traditional album sales, track equivalent albums (TEA) and streaming equivalent albums (SEA).
