Speaking about ‘Rite Here Rite Now’, frontman Tobias Forge shares: “Over a decade ago when Ghost got signed to Loma Vista, Tom Whalley [owner and CEO] asked what the story of the band was. He felt telling a story was vital in order to get new fans engaged.I said that because we were a new ‘baby’ band and more importantly we were an anonymous baby band, there wasn’t really a compelling story to tell. Not yet anyway. But I told him that if he wanted a story, I could come up with one .. This film is the fruit of that conversation.”

Director Alex Ross Perry said that “collaborating with Tobias to expand the saga of Ghost into a feature film has been a wicked delight. This movie allowed us to be inspired by everything from silent horror to The Great Rock n’ Roll Swindle, from Ralph Bakshi to KISS Alive II. The influences were many, but above all, the ultimate goal was to make a one-of-a-kind feast not only for Ghost fans, but all lovers of the cinematic alchemy between rock spectacle and spooky delights.”  Kymberli Frueh, SVP of Programming and Content Acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing, added: “The mystery, mystique, and musical style of Ghost has created such a dedicated allegiance to the band. Our cinemas provide the perfect immersive experience to unite fans as a community and experience Ghost’s elaborate performances with big screens and big sound.”

The band also revealed the first trailer for Rite Here, Rite Now, which features a mix of live performance elements while introducing the multiple characters within the storytelling portion of the film. The voice over teases that this is not a “tale about death, but one of life.”  Check it out – here.
