Ghost have released a music video for Spillways, rendering the irresistible earworm of the band’s latest single in majestic visual form courtesy of director Amir Chamdin.

Ghost‘s Tobias Forge told Metal Hammer magazine about Spillways: “This is an elegy for the darkness that most people have inside. When you have a dam, spillways are the run-offs so the dam won’t overflow. That darkness inside us needs to find its way out.”

The song is taken from the band’s fifth album, Impera, which was released on March 11th. To read more about this release, and to view the video for the first single, Call Me Little Sunshine, please click here. To view a lyric video for the song, Twenties, please go here.

They will headlining 19 arenas across the U.S. and Canada (plus an appearance at Virginia’s Blue Ridge Rock Fest), starting August 26 at San Diego’s Pechanga Arena and running through September 23rd at the Resch Center in Green Bay.

  1. Great band that puts on a great live show. I’ve seen them four times. More fire than KI$$….what one would expect from a band preaching, tongue in cheek, about the Devil.

    1. Hi Dana, I accidentally spelled “cheek” wrong in my post. Can you please correct it for me? Thx
