GHOST are back with another single from their forthcoming EP “Phantomime”, a cover of IRON MAIDEN’s “Phantom Of The Opera”

Phantom Of he Opera” follows last month’s release from the EP, which saw the Tobias Forge fronted band cover the GENESIS song “Jesus He Knows Me“.

A diverse and spellbinding sampling of the Grammy Award-winning band’s musical DNA, “Phantomime” is comprised of covers of classics and deep cuts by TELEVISION, GENESIS, THE STRANGLERS, IRON MAIDEN and Tina Turner. “Phantomime” pays tribute in equal measure to every one of these unlikely bedfellow, influences while stamping them all with GHOST‘s undeniable sonic signature.

The announcement of “Phantomime“‘s impending release also solves the mystery of GHOST‘s recent “Jesus Is Coming” campaign, as referenced in the Good Friday premiere of the newest installment of the band’s long-running webisode series, “Chapter 17: Nap Time”. “Phantomime“‘s May 18 release via Loma Vista Recordings is heralded by GHOST‘s interpretation of GENESIS’s 1992 satirical stab at televangelists “Jesus He Knows Me“, available now to stream and download.

This second coming of “Jesus He Knows Me” is accompanied by an Alex Ross Perry-directed video that will surely make the case that one person’s beauty is another’s blasphemy. Culminating in a climactic ritual that must be seen to be believed, GHOST‘s visual interpretation of “Jesus He Knows Me” rises to the occasion in unholy fashion — and then some. You can watch the music video below.
