Costumed occult-rockers Ghost headlined a sold-out Webster Hall on Saturday (5/11), joined by their touring partners Ides of Gemini (members of Black Math Horseman). Pictures from their set are in this post, with another set of pictures over at InvisibleOranges.

The Webster Hall show was the only NYC show on their itinerary, which started Coachella and end next week in Pittsburgh, PA. Updated dates are listed below.

Ghost BC (don't forget) goes full-on satanic-pop on their new LP, Infestissumam, currently streaming in full over at Pitchfork. It's a definite departure from the band's breakout LP, Opus Eponymous, and you can check out a review of the LP at Invisible Oranges and head below for video of the band discussing the origins of the songs "Idolatrine" and "Jigolo Har Megiddo." Infestissumam hits store shelves next week (4/16).

Reminder, Ghost are on tour with Ides of Gemini and will play Coachella this and next weekend. Look for the pair to play Webster Hall on May 11. Tickets are still available.

Updated tour dates and those videos are below.

Ghost at Roseland, April 2012 (more by Rebecca Reed)
Ghost

Citing legal reasons, painted Swedish metal crew Ghost have changed their name to Ghost B.C., which will be reflected on their forthcoming LP, Infestissumam, due on April 9. Could the name change be related to the Michio Kurihara project?

Meanwhile, Michio Kurihara, the guitarist of Japan's Ghost, will perform as a member of Boris during their upcoming "residency tour"; while Ghost B.C. will hit the road with Ides of Gemini. Fan presale for the Ghost B.C. tour begins Wednesday(2/6) at 12PM (password is "Infestissumam").

Ghost

Ghost have the distinct honor of being the ONLY metal band on the Coachella line-up, and now they'll use those appearances as part of a kick-off for a US tour. Look for Ghost to hit the road as part of a string of dates this spring, hitting Webster Hall on May 11. Tickets go on AmEx presale tomorrow night, appropriately, at midnight (so technically 2/6) with regular sale hitting on Friday (12/8) at noon.

Ghost will be joined by the great Ides of Gemini, who released their debut via Neurot Recordings late last year. Stream some Ides of Gemini and Ghost material below, including the latter's recent ABBA cover.

The star-studded end to Down's set
Scion Rock Fest 2012

With all of the drag queens, bikini-clad girls, and slow-rolling neon cars blasting hip hop, it would be perfectly understandable to mistake East 7th Ave in Ybor City for another Saturday night on the strip. Yet the clubs of East 7th had been invaded by the the black-shirted, devil-horn weilding crew: the fourth-annual Scion Rock Fest was in town.

Ybor City is located north of downtown Tampa, Florida and was the site of 2012's edition, boasting names like Sleep, Merzbow, Oxbow, Repulsion, Sick of it All, Suffocation and many others across four stages (The Orpheum, CZAR Bar, Crowbar, and The Ritz). Though I never made it over to the Orpheum, I saw my fair share of incredible performances across the remaining three stages, many of which will likely never happen again.

Thoughts on Scion Rock Fest 2012, pictures, and video from many of the sets are below.

Church of Misery at Inferno Festival (more by BBG)
Church of Misery

Scion Rock Fest have announced their first round of 2012 bands, including some very interesting and out-of-the-box choices. Among the announced so far include the impressive Repulsion, All Pigs Must Die, Merzbow, Sleep (who just played Roadburn), Church of Misery (them too, and they play NYC soon), and Oxbow, but the lineup also includes names like Terror, Psychic TV, and Cerebral Ballzy and more... bands that seem a bit out of the ordinary for a traditionally all-metal festival entering its fourth year. The show goes down on June 2nd across four venues in Tampa FL. As always, the show is free (with RSVP that opens on 4/20 at noon).

UPDATE: Full lineup has been released, check out the flyer and lineup below.
