Live from New York … it’s Cardinal Copia?

Ghost has premiered a new episode in the band’s ongoing series of skits detailing the characters and lore created by frontman Tobias Forge. The latest installment, which is streaming now on YouTube, picks up where the last one left off, with the Clergy leaders telling Cardinal Copia — Forge’s alter-ego for the Prequelle album cycle — that he needs to get on TV to raise Ghost’s profile.

Cut to the Cardinal setting up a video camera and delivering his not-so-accurate readings of iconic lines from films including Star Wars, Jaws and The Matrix. After he’s done, he sends his tape out to Saturday Night Live creator Lorne Michaels.

In between trying to get on SNL, Ghost will be launching a U.S. tour in support of their latest album, Impera, which features the singles “Hunter’s Moon” and “Call Me Little Sunshine.” The outing kicks off August 26 in San Diego, and also includes Mastodon and Spiritbox on the bill.
