Ghost has released a surprise new single, "Kiss The Go-Goat," along with an accompanying video that channels a heavy 1960s psychedelic vibe. The song will be included on a new limited-edition seven-inch single which will be released on September 27th. "Kiss The Go-Goat" will be backed by another new song, "Mary On A Cross."

The video opens with "Papa Nihil" complaining about the lack of Grammy nominations in the Cardinal Copia era of the band as Sister Imperator insists he's not looking at the "big picture." She warns him to remember what happened "last time," after which we see grainy footage of a 50-year-old video that turns out to be a song from a 1969 version of Ghost in which Papa still sang lead.

Ghost mastermind Tobias Forge told us that his love for the music of the 1960s comes from his mom: "My mom, she's born in 1942, so she was -- is -- part of the '60s, you know. She gave me the whole Beatles, Stones, Pink Floyd, Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix -- all that."

Ghost continues to support its fourth LP, Prequelle, and will launch a North American tour on Friday (September 13th) in Bakersfield, California. It wraps on October 26th in Glens Falls, New York.

Papa Roach has shared a touching video for the song "Come Around," in which the band spotlights one of its biggest fans, Mark Moreno, who has been listening to the group since 2000 and has attended more than 50 Papa Roach shows in his life.

The video highlights how Papa Roach's music has helped Moreno through some of the hardest times of his life as well as some of the best moments. Singer Jacoby Shaddix says at the start of the clip, "This music gives me a connection to something bigger than myself. This music connects me with people. This music gives me purpose."

The main portion of the clip focuses on Moreno's life and how Papa Roach's music has been there throughout both good and bad times. It ends on an emotional note with Shaddix inviting Moreno onstage, where he gives him a Papa Roach platinum award in honor of his late sister as well as lifetime passes to see the band anywhere for free.

Shaddix added, "Personally, it's my life experience of being on both sides of the song: being the person that needed help, and being the person that has reached out and given somebody help. . . . Lyrically, this track's about sticking with your friend through thick and thin, or your loved one, as they're spiraling out."

Papa Roach will kick off a new tour next week as direct support to Shinedown, beginning on September 19th in Bristow, Virginia.
