Dave Grohl’s Famous Collaborators To Tour With Dead Bodies Of Bandmates


Ultimate-Guitar are reporting that during a recent press conference in NYC, Swedish occult rockers Ghost have announced the death of their first three frontmen – Papa Emeritus I, II, and III.

According to Papa Nihil and Sister Imperator, the bodies of deceased singers have been embalmed and will be publicly displayed in coffins at VIP meet and greets throughout the band’s 2018 tour.

Dave Grohl produced and played on Ghost’s EP If You Have Ghost.

Ghost’s collaboration with Dave Grohl of Nirvana and Foo Fighters happened when, before going to Nashville to record Infestissumam, the band had a bunch of covers demoed and were discussing if they should squeeze them onto the album. “… we were at a festival in Europe and Foo Fighters was playing, and we knew that Dave was a fan, and [when we talked to him] after a few handshakes and a few laughs, we were like ‘Okay, so you liked the band? So do you want to do something?’ And he said yeah, and one month later we were in [his studio in] L.A. doing that”.

The cover of “I’m a Marionette” was first released in late 2012 as the B-side to Ghost’s “Secular Haze” single.[3] In late 2013, all of the tracks from If You Have Ghost were included in a special edition of Infestissumam, called Infestissumam Redux.

The EP’s cover art references a shot from the 1922 German Expressionist horror film Nosferatu.

    Umm, what? Is the for real? How did three singers die at the same time? Were they all in the same car crash or something?

      Yeah, Brett wrote half an article…lemme help…
      Papa III being the younger brother to Papa II is part of the mythology surrounding the band, Ghost. They are, however, the same human being underneath the suit. Papa I, II, and III. HIs name is Tobias Forge , he decided the Papa Emeritus lineage had to end with Papa III.before it got too boring. https://uploads.disquscdn.com/images/8bd77bafe3e2d6773d631310bd08059f354c6c4fda3efb01da60314bd8f4aae6.jpg
