Ghost Release Funny New Webisode Announcing Tour with Metallica
Last we checked in with the Ghost storyline, Sister Imperator was in a fiery car crash that left her hospital-bound while Papa Nihil paid a visit. The video served as a tongue-in-cheek way of announcing the band’s European headline tour while also feeding into the band’s ongoing mythology.
The band just released another video, and while this time I was expecting some kind of surprise announcement at the finale (it ended up being Ghost’s opening slot on Metallica’s 2019 European stadium tour) that didn’t lessen my enjoyment of the clip any. We pick up where we left off, with Sister Imperator still in the hospital and Papa once again checking in, this time by phone… from a less-than-flattering location. There’s also a reference to the band’s need to “rebuild” after getting “a new creative team” after “Episode III,” likely a reference to the mass exodus of band members after Ghost’s last album cycle and Tobias Forge’s decision to reboot as Cardinal Copia.
