Meliora debuted at No. 1 at Independent Retail, No. 2 at Rock, and in the Top 10 on Billboard’s Top 200 Album Chart, selling over a quarter million copies globally. The band made their network television debut performing the album’s lead single “Cirice” on CBS’s The Late Show with Stephen Colbert. Popestar debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard’s Top Rock Albums and Hard Rock Albums chart and produced an Active Rock chart topper with “Square Hammer”.
Last month Ghost announced their first-ever headline arena dates with a press conference helmed by Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator at Irving Plaza in New York City. The band will perform at The Forum in Los Angeles, CA on November 16, 2018, and Barclays Center in Brooklyn, NY on December 15, 2018.
