THEOCRACY Release Teaser Video For Upcoming Ghost Ship Album

Athens, Georgia-based melodic metal band Theocracy will release their new album, Ghost Ship, on October 28th in Europe and North America through Ulterium Records. Ghost Ship will be available on CD, 2LP and digital. The 2LP edition is strictly limited to 1,001 copies worldwide. 750 copies comes with black vinyl discs and 251 copies comes with white vinyl discs. A teaser video for the new album can be found below.

With Ghost Ship, Theocracy perfects the lively and fully-realized sound of As the World Bleeds, delivering 10 muscular and streamlined tracks that never lose focus and combine for one memorable journey. You like midtempo singalong anthems? Try the “Ghost Ship” title track. Thrashy rhythms and intensity?  “The Wonder Of It All” should be to your liking. Emotional ballads with huge melodic hooks? Go “Around The World And Back.” Or if you prefer epic, progressive tracks that do all these things and more, 10-minute album closer “Easter” is sure to be a favorite. Each song on Ghost Ship stands alone and has a unique signature, but every moment sounds unmistakably like Theocracy.

I started thinking about what a band of misfits Jesus’ disciples were: fishermen, tax collectors, and people of little consequence in the eyes of the world. Sometimes the ones most people don’t see, or choose to look straight through—the ghosts of society, as it were, dead to the world—end up having the biggest impact. That’s where the title and idea for Ghost Ship came from: all the misfits, the uncool, the outcasts, there is a place where you do fit in. Although Ghost Ship is not a concept album, this is a recurring theme, particularly in the title track and
