I'm sure some people have heard of them. One of my friends mentioned them to me the other day and thought i might like them. Supposedly Dave Grohl is a fan and produced their first album and reportedly has played with them. They have a new album out called Meliora. Would be interesting to see them live. They are playing near me in Sept.

    They were suppose to play in philly on Sept. 26 (same weekend as the Pope visit), but had to reschedule the sold out date to Tuesday. I guess they released more tix cause i was able to get one today :smile:

    They changed the lead singer but have no way of knowing who it was, lol. I was wondering what happened to these guys.

    Now to check their website!

    I kind of like this band. I especially like their cover of Here Comes the Sun. They aren't quite up my alley, but I appreciate that they are such a bizarre live act, and still sound good. If the price was right I'd definitely consider checking out their show.

    tix for the philly show was about $30

    These guys are from my hometown, probably the most hyped band in Sweden atm. Saw them when they supported Foo Fighters a while back (the broken leg gig in Gothenburg). Meliora is by far their greatest record to date. If you like Alice in chains you should dig these guys. From the pinnacle to the pit reminds me of AiC-We die young. Also, Dave Grohl produced their cover EP If you have ghost.

    I only have their latest album which i got for free download when i bought their ticket. I'm hearing comparisons to Blue Oyster Cult though from a few people though. One more month til i see them :smile:

    I can see that comparison too. I'll see them again in November, this time in a more proper satanic setting which is indoors.

    They say they changed singer...but it's really the same person lol.

    They just go by Ghost now and they're fucking awesome! I saw them open for Mastodon/Opeth in 2012 and had no clue who they were and didn't really pay attention. Checked out Meliora a few months back and was immediately hooked. Saw them last weekend at a festival here but unfortunately it was just a 30 minute set. The band did a meet and greet and Papa was really nice and stood up front greeting everyone. He told me they were returning for a headlining show in NC soon (then it was posted on fb that they would be returning soon). Can't wait to see a full show of them.

  • I can't hear the new song enough. I've been listening to it on repeat since yesterday. Can't wait until friday to get my hands on the whole EP.
    It's all about the music...

    was hoping for a new song when they announced they would be premiering a video late last night.  Alas it was for "He Is" which is one of my favorite songs, also pretty funny video.

    Can't recall how I ran across this band but love em. I have mentioned them to several people and no one has heard them. The 2017 ghouls were awesome...I think this was the first video I saw and the energy of the band is amazing.I bought the Grohl produced ep for one song,,If you have ghosts..acoustic versions of that song are fantastic.The tiny bassist is hard to take your eyes off..
