Ghost Confirmed for Maryland Deathfest
Swedish occult rockers Ghost have been confirmed for the ninth edition of Maryland Deathfest, which takes place in Baltimore from May 26 - 29. This show will be Ghost's first stateside appearance. They'll be taking the place of Goatsnake, who recently had to drop out of MDF.
Commented the organizers, "Due to circumstances beyond the control of the band (yeah, we know that can mean many different things), Goatsnake has canceled their appearance at MDF. As a result, Ghost (Sweden) will be making their US debut at at the festival, but please note that they will be playing on SUNDAY, and not on Friday."
Ghost made their live debut last October at Germany's Hammer of Doom festival, followed by a performance at the Live Evil festival in London. The band's debut album, Opus Eponymous, was released in North America via Metal Blade Records in January.
