On 14 June, Ghost will join legendary metal band Candlemass to honor Metallica by performing one of their songs as members Lars Ulrich and Robert Trujillo are presented with the Polar Music Prize by the King of Sweden, Carl XVI Gustaf.

Ghost announced Prequelle (pronounced pre-KWELL) alongside the album’s lead single “Rats” on 13 April 2018 and introduced fans to the band’s new singer Cardinal Copia. Watch his ascension to frontman in Prequelle Chapters 1-3. Last month, the band treated fans to an early listen of the album’s second song “Dance Macabre” with the first-ever Instagram Stories song premiere. With over 5 million streams in three weeks, the track is the band’s fastest streaming song to date. Lyrically, Prequelle delves into the plague, the apocalypse, and dark ages. The entire body of work is also a snapshot of the world in which we live in on a daily basis, brought to life through an emotive, enlightening and riveting body of songs.

Prequelle follows Ghost’s third studio album, Meliora, and its accompanying EP Popestar, which elevated the Swedish rock band into the pantheon of the greatest rock bands on earth and resulted in a Grammy Award for ‘Best Metal Performance.’ Meliora debuted at No. 1 at Independent Retail, No. 2 at Rock, and in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Albums Chart, selling over a quarter million copies globally. The band made their network television debut performing the album’s lead single “Cirice” on CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Popestar debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums chart and produced an Active Rock chart topper with “Square Hammer."
