About Ghost:
Ghost released their second album Infestissumam on April 16th, 2013 via Spinefarm Records/Loma Vista Recordings. The 10-song offering was produced by Grammy® Award-winning producer, Nick Raskulinecz (Foo Fighters, Queens of the Stone Age, Alice in Chains) in Nashville, TN, and debuted at #1 on the iTunes Rock Album Chart. SPIN called the album, "one of the most anticipated heavy metal albums of 2013”, and Pitchfork praised its “addictive as sin” hooks. Rolling Stone described their sound as “somewhere between Mastodon and Metallica, with a heavy dose of Swedish synth mixed in”. In November of 2013, the band released If You Have Ghost, a five-track EP recorded and produced by Dave Grohl, including cover versions of songs by Roky Erickson, ABBA, Army of Lovers, and Depeche Mode. Ghost have toured the U.S. extensively and appeared at various music festivals across the country, including Coachella, Lollapalooza and Rock on the Range.
