“To me, Tobias [Forge, GHOST frontman] is a super-cool dude,” Lars said. “I really like his energy and being around him. Everybody in our band is a huge fan of GHOST. “
“It seems like the fans of our band love them too. With support bands, we always try to take out people we like to be around and get along with. We’re looking forward to our whole jaunt with them.
He continued: “And BOKASSA are incredibly f*cking good. The songs they write, their whole energy and vibe is such a breath of fresh air.
“When I heard their music a year ago, they blew my head off. Getting a chance to introduce them to a wider audience is going to be super cool.”
“The shows will be more like the stadium run we did in America last summer.
“When we play indoors, we play in-the-round, but when we’re outdoors, the issue is there’s no roof on most of the places, so we can’t hang anything, which means it’s a different kind of set-up.”
