Ghost are a Grammy® Award-winning rock band from Linköping, Sweden. The band’s critically acclaimed third full length, Meliora and its accompanying EP Popestar, elevated the Swedish rock band into the pantheon of rock greats and resulted in a Grammy Award for ‘Best Metal Performance’.

Ghost released their critically acclaimed fourth studio album Prequelle on June 1, 2018 on Loma Vista Recordings. Previous Ghost albums have dealt with broad themes like impending doom (Opus Eponymous - 2010), the antichrist and the Inquisition (Infestissumam - 2013), humanism and avarice (Meliora - 2015). Prequelle delves into the plague, the apocalypse, and dark ages.
