Sweden's Ghost B.C. are currently in North America bringing their Satanic heavy pop and thrilling, costume-filled stage show to multiple US and Canadian cities on their month-long tour. The tour rolled through Austin this past Thursday (5/1) for a show at Emo's. Opening that show, and the rest of the tour, was Seattle's noir-folk balladeer King Dude, whose dark sound may be less kitschy than Ghost's but makes for an interesting mix nonetheless. Pictures of the Austin show are in this post.

As discussed, the tour hits NYC on May 17 at Best Buy Theater. Tickets for that show are still available. All remaining tour dates are listed below.

King Dude releases his new album, Fear, on Tuesday (5/6) via Not Just Religious Music. The album, produced by Bill Rieflin (Swans, Ministry), can be streamed ahead of its release at Pitchfork.

More pictures from the Austin show, and the list of remaining dates, below...
