Ghost unveils Papa Emeritus-for-Pope campaign

You might have heard that the Vatican has a vacancy. So Swedish occult rockers Ghost B.C. (formerly Ghost) have seized the opportunity by launching a campaign to draft their own dark pontiff frontman, Papa Emeritus, as Pope. The group launched a new website, PapaEmeritus.com, for the purpose of nominating His Ghoulishness as head of the Catholic Church. And given that Satan is the band’s deity of choice, that might be a bit like taking the establishment down from the inside.

On a slightly less absurd note, by adding their names to the nominating petition, fans will unlock a new track, “Year Zero,” from the band’s upcoming album Infestissumam.

Infestissumam, Ghost’s follow-up to 2010’s Opus Eponymous, will be released in April via Loma Vista Records.
