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.AUDIO: GHOST'S TOBIAS FORGE ON BEING INFLUENCED MUSICALLY BY HIS MOM
