“We’re building our empire from the ashes of an old” as GRAMMY-winning Swedish theatrical rock outfit GHOST announces the impending arrival ofIMPERA, the band’s fifth full length studio album out March 11th via Loma Vista Recordings.  
IMPERA is heralded by today’s release of its first official single, the sublime and haunting “Call Me Little Sunshine,” available now across digital platforms—and as a phantasmagoric visual interpretation lensed by iconic director Matt Mahurin and starring Ruby Modine.   


Watch the official video for ”Call Me Little Sunshine,” HERE.   


The album will also feature “Hunter’s Moon,” Ghost’s fourth consecutive Active Rock #1 radio single, as heard over the end credits of the horror smash Halloween Kills—and manifesting physically in the form of a 7″ vinyl single release this Friday, January 21st.   


IMPERA finds Ghost transported hundreds of years forward from the 14th century Europe Black Plague era of its previous album, 2018’s Best Rock Album GRAMMY nominee Prequelle. The result is the most ambitious and lyrically incisive entry in the Ghost canon: Over the course of IMPERA‘s 12-song cycle, empires rise and fall, would-be messiahs ply their hype (financial and spiritual alike), prophecies are foretold as the skies fill with celestial bodies divine and man-made… All in all, the most current and topical Ghost subject matter to date is set against a hypnotic and darkly colorful melodic backdrop making IMPERA a listen like no other — yet unmistakably, quintessentially Ghost.  
Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace, IMPERA consists of the following 12 songs:  
Call Me Little Sunshine  
Hunter’s Moon  
Watcher In The Sky  
Darkness At The Heart Of My Love  
Grift Wood  
Bite Of Passage  
Respite On The Spital Fields  


Pre-order IMPERA, HERE.  

Ghost will kick off a co-headlining 26-date U.S. arena tour with Volbeat on January 25th, before arriving in the UK & Europe this April & May, compelled to take their dark extravaganza to arenas everywhere.  


Branded the ‘IMPERATOUR,’ support across all UK & European shows will be provided by Uncle Acid & The Dead Beats and Twin Temple.
