Ghost Drop Jazzy Music Video for “Spillways”


It’s been a hot second since we got a proper music video from the Splenda of occult rock, Ghost. Now, the band have dropped a music video for the track “Spillways” off of this year’s IMPERA, which can be checked out below.

The video for “Spillways” is pretty much Ghost hitting all of their standard Ghost notes. Where are they? A big house with tall windows. What are they doing? Playing poppy proto-metal amidst a bunch of fake smoke, with Tobias Forge doing a series of goofy hand motions. Is there anyone else present? Yup, modern dancers, who pose like statues, cry blood, and then undulate in ways that remind us of the musical Cats (not the butthole cut, though — we wish, though, I mean, talk about spillways, am I right, comrades?). It’s sort of an Ur standard of what the band do, like their original flavor of potato chips;. If you found this in a video game, the narration would say, You got GHOST VIDEO!
