The Grammy Award-winning Swedish band starts "The Popestar Tour 2016" on Sept. 16 at The Armory in Rochester, NY.

"We're very proud of it. We're obviously thrilled to be able to play something new. This is a short, to-the-point little gem right at the jugular," A Nameless Ghoul, one of the band's members, called into the radio station from their "clergy headquarters."

Ghost released its latest album, "Meloria," on Aug. 2, 2015, on Loma Vista. It has since been certified Gold.

Listen to the new tune at SiriusXM.
