Ghost have announced their fourth sacred psalm ‘Prequelle‘ (pronounced prē-KWELL) will be released on June 1st via Spinefarm / Loma Vista Recordings / Caroline Australia.

Fans have come along for the ride for years, not knowing for certain who was behind the anonymous band… that is, until Tobias Forge recently revealed himself as the man behind Ghost. Each album is more like a film release than a record release. In addition to serving as director, Forge conceives the role of every character, and oversees everything from the screenplay to video to wardrobe design to artwork to cinematography to soundtrack.

In an interesting twist in Ghost’s saga, Cardinal Copia has been appointed to take over vocal duties for the forthcoming psalm.

Meet him below.

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.

Ghost have also shared ‘Prequelle’s‘ lead single ‘Rats‘ with an accompanying music video directed by Roboshobo.
