Ghost has confirmed a Friday (September 16) release for Popestar, a five-song EP that will precede the Grammy Award-winning Swedish group's North American tour of the same name.
The set includes new song "Square Hammer" along with covers of Eurythmics' "Missionary Man," Echo & the Bunnymen's "Nocturnal Me," Simian Mobile Disco's "I Believe" and Imperiet's "Bible."
Ghost has also released a new tour teaser featuring Sister Imperator telling the Nameless Ghouls that they are not doing a good enough job of spreading the band's Satanic message around the world.
MESSAGE FROM THE CLERGY] We wish to inform you that Sister Imperator has spoken and the masses must be summoned. As our mission continues, nothing has been toppled. Rituals begin this Friday.
Ghost's Popestar Tour kicks off Friday (September 16) in Rochester, N.Y., and runs through November 12 in Brooklyn.
