Ghost Will Perform on Jimmy Kimmel Live! This Week


Update, January 21: Ghost pulled out of their planned performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! just hours before it was scheduled to take place. They shared a statement, saying:

“Children of the World! …more specifically those of you who had just started to prep your couches up for tonights’ Jimmy Kimmel Live show. Well, it turned out that we had a bit too much going on in Reno, getting all our shit together for the tour, however – Our good friends at Kimmel offered us to come back and play the show at a later date during our now imminent US tour.

“So – Cool your jets for today but get ready to rock with us over the coming weeks.

“Are you ready?”

Original post:

Ghost will be celebrating their arrival in America and the pending launch of their co-headline tour with Volbeat with a performance on Jimmy Kimmel Live! this Thursday, January 20 on an episode featuring Jason Bateman and Ashley Park.

After spending much of 2021 working on a new album, Ghost returned to the spotlight in September with a new song, “Hunter’s Moon,” from the soundtrack for the film Halloween Kills.

In an interview a short time later, Forge explained that the album is about the fall of empires:

“The album that I have been working on, I came up with that concept years ago. We played in Seattle in 2013, 2014 — something like that — we played at Showbox At The Market.

“I remember that day I came up with the idea for this record, this upcoming record. Because I got a book called ‘The Rule Of Empires’. So, basically, I wanted to make a record about the rise and ultimately the unescapable fails and falls of empires. And an idea like that can take — at least me — quite far.

“So once you get that idea of, like, ‘Oh, now I know what the pile is gonna look like. I know now what not to put in there.’ And it was the same thing with ‘Prequelle’; it was gonna be about the great death, a medieval, primordial threat of annihilation which was, I guess I wouldn’t say carnal but maybe a tiny tad more spiritual and philosophical death, with the ever presence of actual termination, whereas this record about the empires was gonna be a little bit more practical, I guess; a little bit more, I don’t wanna say political. So it wasn’t really hard to be inspired by the last couple of years.”
