On May 1, 2018, the GRAMMY Museum welcomed GRAMMY-winning rock band Ghost to the Clive Davis Theater for an intimate acoustic performance and special advance listening of their soon-to-be-released fourth sacred psalm, Prequelle (Loma Vista Recordings), released June 1. The evening was followed by a conversation featuring Tobias Forge, the man behind Ghost. Prequelle follows Ghost’s critically acclaimed third studio album, Meliora, and its accompanying EP Popestar, which elevated the Swedish rock band into the pantheon of rock greats and resulted in a GRAMMY Award for Best Metal Performance. Meliora debuted at No. 1 at Independent Retail, No. 2 at Rock, and in the Top 10 on the Billboard 200 album chart, selling over a quarter million copies globally. Popestar debuted at the No. 1 position on Billboard's Top Rock Albums Chart and Hard Rock Albums chart and produced an Active Rock chart topper with "Square Hammer." The band made their network television debut performing the album’s lead single "Cirice" on CBS’ "The Late Show with Stephen Colbert." Entertainment Weekly declared them "one of the most dynamic loud bands on the planet."
