Ghost Announces World Premiere of Debut Feature Film “Rite Here Rite Now”

Ghost announced that their debut feature film, Rite Here Rite Now, will make its worldwide online premiere on Veeps on July 20.

Following its worldwide theatrical release June 20-23, “Rite Here Rite Now” will be available to fans worldwide via the streaming service Veeps, founded by Joel and Benji Madden.

In addition to the film’s online premiere, the event will also feature an exclusive Q&A with GHOST mastermind Tobias Forge, co-director Alex Ross Perry and director Jim Parsons, recorded live at the film’s London premiere.

The broadcast will take place on July 20 at 12pm PST/8pm UK time. Tickets for the broadcast will cost $19.99 (£18.64) and are available to purchase now by clicking this link.

Once a ticket is purchased, fans can watch the event for two weeks from the original broadcast date, with the option to watch it again within 48 hours of purchasing the ticket.

Last month Rock Sound attended the world premiere of “Rite Here Rite Now” in London, where we caught up with Tobias Forge, Alex Ross Perry and several famous GHOST fans.

Speaking with the project’s puppet master, Tobias Forge, we learned more about the process of creating the band’s first feature film:

“Although it’s fun, it’s also exhausting. I’m used to working under deadlines, but filming is definitely a lot.”

“We’ve been focused on this date for the last nine months, so it’s a huge relief. There were certain moments in the making of the film where there was a sense of urgency, especially for anyone who had to explain themselves to someone… now we’re finally here, against all odds.”

ClimberWill Gould of The Wall Street Journal also told us:

“It kind of breaks the glass ceiling for rock and metal bands to see a band doing something on this scale.”

“When we started Creeper a few years ago, one of the main things we talked about was bringing back the thrill of punk rock… it’s exciting to see bands doing bigger and bigger things.”

Watch the full recap of the world premiere of “Rite Here Rite Now” on Rock Sound here.

Shot during GHOST’s two sold-out shows at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, the film immerses viewers in the colorful melodrama of the famed live performance ritual that helped catapult the band to fame.

But it’s also more than just a concert film—it’s a story that picks up on the themes of the long-running Chapters series, featuring performances of beloved tracks from all five Ghost albums, as well as the previously unreleased track “The Future Is A Foreign Land.”
