Ghost Release ‘Square Hammer’ and Announce New EP

The Swedish occult rockers in Ghost have released a brand new song, “Square Hammer,” which premiered on SiriusXM and can be streamed on The track will be featured on their upcoming EP, ‘Popestar,’ set to come out on Friday. The album will consist mostly of covers, similar to their 2013 EP ‘If You Have Ghost,’ and was produced Tom Dalgety, who has worked with Royal Blood and Killing Joke among other bands.

Ghost will perform “Square Hammer” on their upcoming North American tour. One of the Nameless Ghouls told SiriusXM, “we’re very proud of it. We’re obviously thrilled to be able to play something new. This is a short, to-the-point little gem right at the jugular.”

The “Popestar” track list:
1. Square Hammer
2. Nocturnal Me
3. I Believe
4. Missionary Man
5. Bible

A Nameless Ghoul told myRock about the upcoming EP, “the EP will sort of connect with ‘Meliora’, so it’s not [going to feature] a new Papa, it’s not a new album; it’s going to be like an extension of ‘Meliora’. That is gonna prolong the tour. So we’re gonna do an American tour in the fall, and then we’re gonna come back to Europe in the beginning of next year and do a bigger, sort of final ‘Meliora’ show. And in between now and then, we will work on the new album, and after the European tour in the beginning of [2017], we’re gonna go into the studio and record a new album.”[x]

This year, Ghost brought home the Grammy for “Best Metal Performance” during the pre-telecast ceremony at the 58th annual Grammy Awards. Ghost was nominated for the song “Cirice” from “Meliora.” The band also played at Lollapalooza on Friday on the Pepsi Stage.

  3. If you are concerned about what your kids are adding to their Roku the best method would be to ensure all your Rokus are
    on the same account. If they would add an adult channel, such as PornHub, to their Roku it will also show up on your Roku at the same time, giving you a red flag about what they are doing.
    So when PornHub, a popular adult website, yesterday announced they now have a Roku Channel where you
    can watch adult videos on your Roku many became concerned that Roku is
    now allowing adult channels in their store. 6 In contrast to the
    darkness and destruction that pornography can bring
    to people’s lives, Jesus said, “I came that they might have life, and have it more abundantly.”7 God offers you his forgiveness
    through a relationship with Him. Jesus Christ, the Son of God,
    was tortured and died on the cross for our sin so that
    we could be forgiven. Three days later Jesus rose from the
    dead, just as He said He would. This way you know exactly what days of the month not to book
    any movie shoots for. That doesn’t mean everyone has to
    know you’re struggling.
