Things are moving fast for Ghost. In the last week, they've revealed their "new" frontman Cardial Copia and footage has surfaced of their first performance with the Cardinal, an acoustic set in Chicago.
Based on data online, we learned the band's lead single is titled "Rats" and is likely coming on either April 12 or April 13. At that point, it's safe to assume we'll finally have a concrete album announcement. Today, we get a tease.
A 30 second preview of the song is now available below after it aired on a Swedish radio station, and some sort of artwork has also surfaced. Whether that artwork is for the single or the album, we're not sure, but holy shit does it look evil. Also, if you match up the below Instagram post to the artwork, I think it's safe to assume that it's done by longtime Ghost artist Zbigniew Bielak.
Anyway, check out "Rats" below. It's phenomenally heavy metal and even features just a touch of growl-y vocals in the chorus. It's also going to be stuck in your head. Ghost will surely be playing the song when they hit the road in a few weeks.
