Mysterious Swedish buzz band GHOST has announced that it will embark on its first ever North American headlining tour in January, 2012. GHOST cult leader “Papa Emeritus” (who takes the stage in the form of “a satanic pope”) and his anonymous ghouls will team up with Canadian doom rockers BLOOD CEREMONY and ANCIENT VVISDOM from Austin, Texas. The two week trek dubbed the “13 Dates of Doom” tour will launch on January 18 in New York City. GHOST continues to tour in support of its debut album “Opus Eponymous”, which has been called “amazing” by Stereogum and “a primer on the creation of melodic hard rock” by The Big Takeover.
