Get to Know Ghost with a Cool Live Acoustic Performance [Video]

Ghost is a cool band that you've been hearing on GRD, and they're about to release their third album, 'Meliora', on Friday! They're a Swedish band that hides their identities, only know as 'Papa Emeritus' and the 'Unnamed Ghouls'.

They're on their third 'Papa Emeritus', even though it's the same singer, they change his look and alter-ego. It's a fun band, and they have a great throwback sound and style that's really unique.
