Saint Asonia have shared a fan-made video for their song “Ghost.” This track is from the band’s latest album “Flawed Design.”
Frontman Adam Gontier (ex-Three Days Grace) commented:
“We invited our fans to show us what the song means to them and we wanted to work with them to create the visual to go along with it. I’ve actually never done something like this in the past. It’s been a great process, and the video turned out awesome.”
He also added the following about the song:
“It’s about losing someone in your life — whether it be to death, drugs, sickness. It’s about trying to put the pieces back together after going through something unbearable. Sonically, it’s got a different feel. It’s not just a straightforward song written around a specific riff. It’s probably one of my favorite songs we’ve ever written as a band.”
Super7 have released two new Ghost products. This includes a new Papa Emeritus III “ReAction Figure” that is “packaged on a Mummy Dust dollar bill cardback” and a 52-inch “Paper People” glow in the dark Papa Emeritus III decoration. You can purchase those HERE.
It was recently reported that Ghost were planning to release their new album this winter, but that doesn’t appear to be the case. During a new interview with Sweden Rock Magazine, Tobias Forge clarified that he is planning to record the effort in January and release it in late 2021. The frontman said the following:
“The idea is for the album to be recorded in January. The actual recording will last around six weeks and then there’s two to three weeks of mixing and mastering. So sometime in March the record should be finished, but it won’t be released until after the summer. As it looks now, knock on wood, we will then go on tour. We won’t release an album until we know that we are actually going on tour. The album release will coincide with the start of a tour. Of course, we could announce an album release date and then, for some reason, it might not be possible to tour, but that’s a whole other matter.”
During an interview with VK, Ghost frontman Tobias Forge confirmed that the band are still planning to release their new album this winter. However, due to the coronavirus pandemic, they are not expected to return to the road until fall 2021. Forge also added the following when asked if the pandemic has influenced the new material:
“I have already made a record about God’s wrath and doomsday, even if ‘Prequelle‘ was not about just infection from a medical perspective. But I have a feeling that there will be plenty of doomsday and quarantine-confirming records in the future [from other bands], and I think I might not participate in it.”
Henrik Palm (ex-Ghost) has premiered a new video for his new song “Given Demon.” This track is from his new album “Poverty Metal,” which will be released on October 16. Palm said the following about the song:
“Given Demon was the last song written for the album. I just wanted to have a song that ran over the listener. Like a truck. Enjoy!”
