Ghost Announce Spring 2016 U.S. Tour, Promote Grammy Nomination
2016 just started, but already big things are on the horizon for Ghost. The band's single "Cirice" was recently nominated for a Best Metal Performance Grammy Award and a new trailer has arrived online proclaiming, "We are heard. Our hour has come." In addition, the masked rockers will continue to spread their message on tour this spring.
In the trailer above, designed at garnering interest in the band's Grammy nomination, a female voice proclaims, "Give us your golden idol to melt into unholy fact." It's an entertaining clip that also works in the names of competitors like Slipknot, Lamb of God and August Burns Red. Check it out in the player provided and tune in Feb. 15 at 8PM on CBS to see if Ghost walks away with the Best Metal Performance Grammy.
In other news, Ghost are heading back out on tour. The band will start the year with dates in Europe and then will hit U.S. stages this spring in support of their Meliora album. Papa Emeritus III and his nameless ghouls will hit the road beginning April 13 in Montclair, N.J. Dates continue through late May. See the full itinerary below.
Tickets for the run will go on sale this Friday (Jan. 15) at 10AM local time. For ticketing info, click here.
