Uncle Acid And The Deadbeats – Wasteland (Rise Above Records)

Ghost – Popestar (Spinefarm)

A cheeky little EP from everyone’s favourite nameless ghouls in conjunction with a string of 41 US dates here. This contains one new track and 4 covers and is certainly a mixed bag of tricks and treats. Ghost have already… Continue Reading →
