Ghost Announce New EP ‘Phantomime’, Release Cover Of Genesis’ ‘Jesus He Knows Me’

Ghost has recently announced the release of their upcoming EP, Phantomime, and released a cover of GenesisJesus He Knows Me.

The band released a short video titled “Chapter 17” last Friday with the caption “Don’t sleep on this, it will be a Good Friday.

In it, you could see Tobias Forge (as Papa Emeritus IV) struggling with a juice box and handing Papa Nihil a Ghost gold record.

Yesterday, on Easter Sunday, the band premiered a 30-minute video called “Jesus Talk with Father Jim DeFroque“. The video featured DeFroque analyzing and humorously discussing the lyrics of a few songs, including Ministry’s “Jesus Built My Hotrod” and Depeche Mode’s “Personal Jesus,” before giving a positive assessment of Genesis’ song. He also spoke with a few call-in listeners about his take on Jesus and music while giving out a phone number for donations.

After the video ended, a countdown started for the premiere of another video. The clip shows DeFroque collecting donations and driving while rocking out to Ghost’s version of Jesus He Knows Me.

Phantomime is set to release on May 18 via Loma Vista Recordings, and fans can now preorder it here.
