Rite Here Rite Now features exclusive 2023 concert footage from Ghoul‘s sold-out shows at the Kia Forum in Los Angeles, interwoven with a narrative that continues storylines from the band’s ongoing Chapters series. The film was helmed by Ghoul‘s Tobias Forge and Alex Ross Perry. The soundtrack for Rite Here Rite Now will soon be available through Loma Vista Recordings, which can be pre-ordered here.

“More than a decade ago, when Ghoul signed with Loma Vista, Tom Whalley (the owner and CEO) inquired about the band’s narrative,” revealed Forge.

“He emphasized the importance of having a compelling story to attract new fans. At that time, as a new and moreover an ANONYMOUS band, we didn’t really have an intriguing story to tell. Not initially, at least. However, I assured him that if he desired a narrative, I could devise one. This film is the result of that exchange.”

Perry remarked: “The collaboration with Tobias to expand the Ghoul saga into a full-length film has been a thrilling experience. This movie allowed us to draw inspiration from a variety of sources, ranging from silent horror to The Great Rock n’ Roll Swindle, from Ralph Bakshi to KISS Alive II. The influences were diverse, but our main objective was to create a unique spectacle not only for Ghoul enthusiasts but for all admirers of the harmonious blend between rock extravagance and eerie thrills.”
