"I'm really, really excited. I mean, everything's just bigger this time. Everything sounds better. Everything's running better. Everything's running hot. Instead of where I came from, this is where I'm going. Musically, it's harder. It's faster, but there's still tons of stuff from the first album. So, there's elements of Slipknot. There's elements of Stone Sour. There's elements of 'CMFT.' There's elements of the stuff that I've been doing for years. Just, like, cover-wise or whatever. All the stuff that I've always wanted to do. We are just… we're doing that. Just cranking it up and it all sounds so fucking good, that I can't even describe to you how stoked I am to be starting on this. And today's the day. Today's the day. Today's the fucking one. Let's get going! I'm serious as a heart attack. Nobody is ready for what they're about to hear, for real. But first, we gotta record it." - Corey Taylor (via social vid)

"'Violence No Matter What' is about one thing and one thing only. It's ok to debate and fight and to think differently. But there is a limit, and the line must be drawn at authority held with violence, a world view that cannot survive without enemies, a promised return to a fabricated former glory." - Avatar vocalist Johannes Eckerström

"'Violence No Matter What' was such an inspiring piece to be a part of! Thank you so much to the boys for giving me the opportunity to express my angst against the horrors of this world through such a brilliant song!" - Lzzy Hale

Avatar's new album "Dance Devil Dance" will be unleashed on February 17th. Don't miss them at Sonic Temple Art + Music Festival at Historic Crew Stadium on Saturday May 27th.

Ghost is Hinting At Upcoming Project...Meanwhile In Dublin (Ireland)...Hey is that Def Leppard’s Joe Elliott?

sdldmdflc

Ghost appears to be hinting at an upcoming project. Eagle-eyed fans noticed that a billboard featuring frontman Tobias Forge recently popped up in Los Angeles. It also contained the phrase "Jesus is coming." It's currently unclear what the band could be hinting at, but it does follow a November 2022 interview with Rolling Stone where Forge discussed the "vibe" of Ghost's next album. Their most recent album was "Impera" released in March 2022. 

"SPILLWAYS" Featuring Joe Elliott of Def Leppard

"Impera was my favourite rock album of 2022 … I found out along the way that Tobias is a bit of a fan of DL, so I guess it was inevitable we'd both find out about each other! Once we'd been introduced to the idea of working together it just snowballed organically & I'm thrilled that I got to sing on what is my favourite song from that album!" - Joe Elliott of Def Leppard

Check out the hilarious teaser video and then the Audio/Video of Ghost's "Impera" single "Spillways", featuring Elliot on guest vocals. 

Ghost are planning to celebrate their fictional late 1960s run with a new exhibition at the Whisky a Go Go in West Hollywood, CA this Wednesday, February 01st. If you're not up to date on the band's canon, a young Papa Nihil fronted Ghost in the 1960s, with their 2019 "Seven Inches Of Satanic Panic" representing that time period.
As fate would have it, the b-side from that release, "Mary On A Cross", would find find viral fame on TikTok, subsequently going gold in the United States late last year. Ghost themselves had recently been teasing that "Jesus is coming", and it would appear that this is may have been the resurrection they were referencing.
