Ghost are set to embark on a headlining North American tour, and they’re giving fans some brand-new music in advance of the outing. The band has unleashed a video for the new song “Kiss the Go-Goat”. Update: Listen to a second new song called “Mary on a Cross”.
The song and its video appear within the eighth chapter of an ongoing YouTube series chronicling the trials and tribulations of Papa Nihil. The video depicts a mop-topped young Papa Nihil fronting Ghost in 1969 during a performance at the Whisky a Go Go in Los Angeles.
We’ll play along with a press release that creates a new history of the band, in which the performance was Ghost’s first-ever gig before the original lineup broke up. The song “Kiss the Go-Goat” was part of the “Seven Inches of Satanic Panic” vinyl release, which contained the track “Mary on a Cross” as its B-side.
The “re-release” of the “Seven Inches of Satanic Panic” vinyl will be available for order on the band’s website. It can be presumed that it is also the 7-inch vinyl included within the band’s recently announced Prequelle Exalted box set. The super-deluxe edition of Ghost’s 2018 album, Prequelle, arrives on September 27th. Pre-orders are ongoing.
Ghost’s North American “Ultimate Tour Named Death” kicks off Friday night (September 13th) in Bakersfield, California, and runs through an October 26th show in Glens Falls, New York. Pick up tickets here.
