RITE HERE RITE NOW, which screened in 1,800+ cinemas across 49 territories, combines never-before-seen 2023 concert footage of GRAMMY award-winning rock band, GHOST, with a narrative story that picks up plot threads from the band's long-running Chapters series, directed by GHOST's Tobias Forge and Alex Ross Perry (Her Smell).

Tobias Forge said, "Having wanted to make a movie for most of my life, I was overwhelmed to see the interest our fans showed in the film before it was even released. Now as people seem to have not only seen it, but also seem to dig it... That really gets my motor humming. Thank you all!"

Kymberli Frueh, SVP of Programming and Content Acquisitions at Trafalgar Releasing, said "We're thrilled to be part of this historic moment for Ghost and their fans across the globe. RITE HERE RITE NOW proves there's a huge appetite for concert films that deliver an unforgettable experience. It's a testament to the power of music and the magic of seeing incredible concerts on the big screen and together with other fans."

RITE HERE RITE NOW: The Original Motion Picture Soundtrack, mixed by Rich Costey, will be released worldwide on July 26 via Loma Vista Recordings. A fitting 18-song complement to GHOST's debut feature film, the band's first ever original soundtrack will be available on all formats (digital, CD, 2xLP).
