This news update is brought to you today by the department of IT’S ABOUT DAMN TIME!
So you might remember a while back when I was whining about the fact that Ghost, having recently cancelled a U.S. tour, announced that they’d be returning to this country, and hitting several major cities but none that are near me.
Then I proceeded to whine some more, at every opportunity I could. Mostly on Facebook. Especially when
some jerk a highly-esteemed fellow blogger bragged about seeing the show up in his corner of the country. Well, obviously the band have been paying attention and they got sick and tired of my nonstop whining. Because lo and behold, yesterday they put out an official announcement:
Children of America,
As whispered about these last weeks, we are in fact returning to haunt your vast lands again in April and May, together with Mastodon and Opeth.

The news gets better, because this tour is making a stop in Pittsburgh — on 15 April at Stage AE. It appears that Mastodon and Opeth are alternating dates for headlining, and on this particular date it seems that Mastodon will be the one on top. Not that it matters, because I wouldn’t mind seeing either one of them. Hit the link above to see the full list, or just check it out right here, beyond the jump.
