Ghost and Carpenter Brut are both acquainted with one another, as the two toured together in 2016.
“I’ve been a big fan of Ghost since their beginning,” said Carpenter Brut, “and when I had the opportunity to open for the band in 2016, I was super excited. Last April, I received an email from Tobias [Forge] himself asking if I would remix ‘Dance Macabre,’ and, of course, I accepted. I wanted to bring a funky and disco touch, not just confine myself to the pure synthwave style that would have been expected, but to make this remix a disco rock song and bring out the pop side of the band that is always underlying in their music.”
Prequelle hit No. 3 on the Billboard 200 in its debut week, five spots higher than Ghost’s previous record, Meliora. Beginning October 26, Ghost will start promoting the album on their nearly two-month long American tour. Tickets go on sale on June 15 at 10AM local time with a pre-sale starting June 12 at 10AM local time. More information about the 37-city trek, including the full list of stops, can be found here.
