After the announcement of the addition of a new Papa Emeritus this summer to front the band, it was clear that info for their upcoming Ghost B.C. album was nearby and it happened unofficially a few days ago when Harddriveradio.com posted a note mentioning details about it, which they ended up deleting but can be read below:
Well, in other news today: Yesterday I heard the forthcoming new single from Ghost B.C. called “Cirice” from their new album, Meliora. Produced by Klas Ahlund, whose producing/writing credits include Madonna, Katy Perry, Swedish House Mafia, and mixed by Andy Wallace, the album will be released August 21. The album title is Latin for “better” and “Cirice” refers to church. As you know, the band’s identites are never revealed. Their frontman, soon to be a new Papa Emeritus (now III), dresses like a pope and the “Namesless Ghouls” round out the musicians. I am surprised at the news of the replacement of Papa Emeritus II. I must get the low down on that. I did hear from a source close to the band this new album “kicks ass.” Is the world ready for a new Ghost B.C.? I do know the band will be in NYC the same time Pope Francis is here this September, which is also when their tour will kick off. Rumor has it that a few years back, our pal Dave Grohl (who produced an EP of cover songs for the band called If You Have Ghost) perforned with the band as a Nameless Ghoul. That darn Dave, he wants to hold the record for performing with as many bands as possible I think!
So far, no official information has been revealed by either Ghost B.C. or their label Loma Vista Recordings but it should come in no time for them to do it, especially after they announced a show in their hometown Linköping for June 3rd., a day before their appearance at Sweden Rock Festival. It’s particularly awesome that the band will be on tour around the same time the real pope is going to be. That might be able to get them some mainstream press if they can time it ok.
