On November 19, Ghost B.C. — 2013′s breakout metal band — will release a new EP of mostly covers, If You Have Ghost. You also can stream the EP's opening track, a cover of Roky Erickson's "If You Have Ghosts." The disc (and download) was produced Foo Fighters' Dave Grohl and will be released just as the band's UK trek with Alice in Chains kicks off.
Over the weekend, Swedish cult metal favorites Ghost debuted a new song titled "Secular Haze" during a show in Linköping, Sweden. The band have now uploaded a studio recording of the track, which can be streamed via the YouTube clip below.
Well before it was officially announced, the co-headlining tour — now dubbed Heritage/Hunter — featuring Mastodon and Opeth was already generating tour of the year-level buzz around the rock/metal community. While the three bands are exceedingly different in style, their fan bases have a surprising overlap, save for maybe the most prog-happy of Opeth's fans and the most mainstream of Mastodon's.
