Ghost – “Rats” Video

The Swedish metal band Ghost announced a new album today. It’s referred to as their “fourth sacred psalm” in a press release, and it’s titled Prequelle. It’s the band’s first album since 2015’s Meliora, and it’ll be out 6/1 via Loma Vista.

Ghost broke the news with lead single “Rats,” which comes accompanied by a characteristically theatrical video. The clip is spooky and silly at the same time, and there’s a dance routine that recalls the Buffy musical episode “Once More, With Feeling.” The Ghost guys know how to put on a good show and have fun doing it. If you like watching scary men dance around, this one’s for you!
