Ghost Reveal Their Dark Beginnings In “Dance Macabre” Music Video

Ghost just released their fourth album, Prequelle, in June. Following “Rats,” second single “Dance Macabre” has finally been granted a music video, and was it ever worth the wait!

It begins with two young men looking for a party one night in Transilvania. They approach a mansion, ring the doorbell, and are greeted by a vampirish man seemingly unaware of any festivities. Upon entering the house party, the two companions join a room full of people dressed up in their ghoulish best, a V-formation of dancers providing entertainment onstage. The more serious of the two men forms an instant connection with an intimidating blonde woman. But things get weird when a group arrives donning beak masks used to guard against disease like the plague. In the end, we see a transformation that likely led to Papa Emeritus and Sister Imperator. (Never mind that Cardinal Copia is Ghost’s current leader.)

Zev Deans directed the video, while Kiley Coleman served as its producer. Watch the music video for “Dance Macabre” below:
