Swedish rock band Ghost has announced dates for Imperatour, a trek across North America that features Atlanta metal band Mastodon as a special guest.
The tour, which is in promotion of their fifth album released in March, Impera, begins August 26 in San Diego and finishes September 23 in Green Bay, WI. This includes a stop at Belmont Park’s UBS Arena in Elmont, NY on September 10.
Information regarding tour dates and tickets can be found on Ghost’s website.
Produced by Klas Åhlund and mixed by Andy Wallace, Impera‘s subject matter focuses on the fall of empires. Upon release it swept album charts internationally, debuting at number one in five different countries including Sweden and coming in at number two in the U.S.
Singles from the record also found commercial success, with “Call Me Little Sunshine” and “Hunter’s Moon” both hitting number one on Billboard’s Mainstream Rock Airplay chart.
Mastodon has had recent success of their own as well. Their ninth album Hushed and Grim, released in October 2021, debuted at number one on Billboard’s Hard Rock Albums chart and number 20 on the Billboard 200.
