Funko will be releasing a new Pop! Albums figure based on the cover art for Ghost’s “Opus Eponymous” on September 18. Pre-orders can be found at Hot Topic.
Ghost have premiered a new video for their song “Life Eternal.” The clip was recorded one year ago today (March 3) during the final show of the “Prequelle“ touring cycle at Palacio de los Deportes in Mexico City, Mexico. That concert notably featured the death of Papa Nihil and the promotion of Cardinal Copia to Papa Emeritus IV.
Funko have announced that they will be releasing a new Pop! figure of Ghost‘s Papa Emeritus III exclusively through Hot Topic. You can pre-order that HERE.
Super7 have announced that they will be releasing a new deluxe figure of Ghost’s Papa Emeritus I as part of their ULTIMATES! line. The toy will come with an assortment of interchangeable accessories and it can be pre-ordered HERE.
Here’s a description of the figure:
“‘Tonight we’re summoned for a divine cause…’ To commemorate the 10th Anniversary of the debut album of rock’s most mysterious band Ghost, Super7 is honored to welcome Papa Emeritus I to our ULTIMATES! Figures Collection.
Papa Emeritus I was the progenitor of the heavy rock phenomenon, Ghost. From the shadows, he and his nameless ghouls filled the airwaves with sounds of dark rituals, human sacrifices, and satanic hymns. Known for his mysterious nature and aggressive stage presence, Papa Emeritus I elevated Ghost to heights few in the Clergy ever come to achieve. During his tenure as Papa, he toured the U.S. and Europe several times, all while staying true to the message of the Dark Ministry. While Papa Emeritus I’s achievements in the name of Satan were numerous, the Clergy had even greater plans of world domination…
This made-to-order deluxe 7” highly articulated figure features Papa Emeritus I from the Opus Eponymous album era. The figure is lavishly detailed and painted and features an epic assortment of interchangeable accessories:
- 2 heads (Papa I with Original Mitre and Papa I with Golden Mitre)
- 1 pair of black gloved fists
- 1 pair of black gloved gripping hands
- 1 pair of black gloved expressive hands
- 2 soft goods vestments (Original Red / Black and White / Gold)
- 2 Thuribles with real chains (silver and gold) Microphone with stand
- Microphone and mic stand
Papa Emeritus I will also come packaged in a deluxe slip case-style box. Available for a limited time, this is a must-have for all members of The Clergy!
The Ghost ULTIMATES! Figure – Papa Emeritus I is a made-to-order release and we expect to ship this figure in Winter 2021.”
Ghost frontman Tobias Forge (aka Papa Emeritus IV) and The Hellacopters recently teamed up for a cover of The Rolling Stones’ “Sympathy For The Devil“ on SVT‘s “På Spåret.” You can see footage of that below:
Ghost have revealed that they are “working diligently on several big things” for 2021. It’s assumed that those plans include their new album, which they are planning to release late this year.
The group said the following:
“[A Message From The Clergy]
I hope this message finds you relatively well and hopeful for the future. Needless to say, we have all experienced a strange year -some of us an absolutely devastating year with loved ones passing, loneliness and a very somber outlook for the future. Yet there is some distance to go before we are somewhat back to where we’d regard life as normal again.
With this , I want you all to know that we are working diligently on several big things for next year, so please do not confuse our silence with inactivity.
And I confess, I wanted to reach out to let you all know we miss you, eternally.
News pertaining to 2021 will be rolled out throughout the new year, so I ask for nothing but your patience.
In the interim, focus on taking care of yourselves and your loved ones. Have hope and strive for a better and more optimistic future, because it’s all within reach. We are almost there.
Let’s end this year with the knowledge that the roaring TWENTIES will begin in 2021!
Happy Holidays and much love.
/A Nameless Ghoul”
As previously reported, Ghost filed a lawsuit against Ghost Vodka earlier this year due to their use of the name “Ghost.” Now, according to Blabbermouth, the Swedish Patent And Market Court has dismissed the lawsuit, saying that the word “ghost” is generic and that the company is free to use it. The court also said that there are major visual differences between frontman Tobias Forge’s company Svensk Drama Pop’s logo design and Ghost Vodka’s design, making it easy for consumers to tell them apart. They added that Ghost Vodka did not infringe on SDP’s trademarks and that claims for fines and damages cannot be upheld. This news comes after Ghost’s attorney Ann-Charlotte Söderlund Björk previously claimed that the case was “about trademark rights that grant ownership for any and all alcoholic beverages.” However, the court noted that SDP didn’t use its trademark within the five-year period required by law.
