Ghost has received its first-ever American Music Award within the newly debuted Favourite Rock Album class. The critically acclaimed, chart-topping IMPERA edged out competitors from Coldplay, Think about Dragons, Machine Gun Kelly, and the Purple Scorching Chili Peppers to win the vote.
That includes the Rock Radio No.1s “Name Me Little Sunshine”—lately nominated for a Greatest Steel Efficiency Grammy—and “Hunter’s Moon”—the tip credit track from 2021’s No.1 R-Rated movie Halloween Kills—in addition to the at the moment climbing “Spillways,” IMPERA was launched March 11, 2022 through Loma Vista Recordings.
Hailed by Rolling Stone as “an escapist rock & roll album,” IMPERA “conquered rock, steel, and the charts” (as reported by the Los Angeles Occasions), debuting at No.1 in a sweep of the U.S. album charts, and getting into the Billboard 200 at No.2.
Produced by Klas Åhlund and blended by Andy Wallace, IMPERA units probably the most present and topical Ghost subject material so far in opposition to a hypnotic and darkly colourful melodic backdrop, leading to a pay attention like no different, but unmistakably, quintessentially Ghost. IMPERA’s launch has been supported by the “euphoric spectacle” (Rolling Stone) of the 70+ date IMPERATOUR area tour, throughout which the Wall Avenue Journal christened Ghost “the following era of area stars.”
Again in September, the band launched the official dwell video for his or her stunning viral smash “Mary On A Cross.” The efficiency footage for the Ryan Chang-directed clip was filmed on September 6 on the Yuengling Heart in Tampa, Florida throughout the summer season 2022 leg of the band’s IMPERATOUR.
In a message shared alongside the video, the band wrote, “We want to inform you that every one good issues should come to an finish. Though the US Imperatour will wrap this weekend we needed to go away you with this token of our appreciation to your continued assist. Watch ‘Mary on a Cross – Dwell from Tampa 2022.’”
