Look out for men dressed in evil pope/executioner outfits in the East Village area, as the avalanche of post-MDF shows continues with Sweden's Ghost! The band will play a rare show at The Studio At Webster Hall on June 1st, days after their MDF appearance, in support of their new album Opus Eponymous (out now via Metalblade). Tickets for the NYC show are on sale. No word on whether the band will add more North American dates, or who if anyone will open the NYC show.
Ghost joins names like Hooded Menace, Tragedy/Citizens Arrest, Doom, Cripple Bastards, Noisear/The Kill, Innumerable Forms/Hatred Surge/Miasmal/Mammoth Grinder, and many others who have all added shows surrounding their MDF appearance.
Speaking of MDF, we recently interviewed MDF: The Movie director David Hall. Check that out.
