Published Oct 10, 2013Swedish horror rockers Ghost B.C. may have released their second full-length, Infestissumam, only a few months ago, but the classic-rock revivalists are taking a break from their recent burger-causing controversy and doing something everybody can get behind by releasing a new covers EP produced by Dave Grohl. If You Have Ghost will be out on November 19 through Loma Vista Recordings/Spinefarm Records.
Recorded by the well-known rock'n'roll scholar and Foo Fighters frontman, the five-track EP will include cover versions of songs by the likes of Roky Erickson (whose songs "If You Have Ghosts" inspired the title), ABBA, Army of Lovers and Depeche Mode, as well as a live rendition of Infestissumam track "Secular Haze," which was recorded during a performance in Brooklyn this year.
The album is available for pre-order on 12-inch vinyl, CD and digital recordings over at Ghost B.C.'s online store, with those laying down money early getting an exclusive download of "Secular Haze."
Fans will of course remember that Grohl's work with Ghost B.C. popped up earlier this year as well.
The band are currently on tour with the Deftones and Avenged Sevenfold as part of their Hail to the King tour through the U.S, but as we wait for their return to Canada, listen to Ghost B.C.'s cover of Roky Erickson's "If You Have Ghosts" below.
