GHOST‘s June 3 warm-up show at at Doom in Linköping will serve as the group’s live debut with “new” singer Papa Emeritus III, the three-month-younger brother of GHOST‘s previous frontman, Papa Emeritus II (pictured).
The latest issue of Sweden Rock Magazine marked GHOST‘s final photo session with Papa Emeritus II before he was “fired” and succeeded by Papa Emeritus III.
GHOST is planning to return to the studio before the summer to record several cover songs, including one by Leonard Cohen and another by the ’80s Swedish band IMPERIET.
