Sweden Rock Magazine recently sat down with GHOST frontman Tobias Forge in the studio in Sweden where he is writing and doing pre-production for the band’s fifth album.
“The plan now is for me to be here [in the studio] writing for another two months until Christmas,” Forge said, according to an English-language translation provided to BLABBERMOUTH.NET by Sweden Rock Magazine. “The idea is for the album to be recorded in January. The actual recording will last around six weeks and then there’s two to three weeks of mixing and mastering. So sometime in March the record should be finished, but it won’t be released until after the summer. As it looks now, knock on wood, we will then go on tour. We won’t release an album until we know that we are actually going on tour. The album release will coincide with the start of a tour. Of course, we could announce an album release date and then, for some reason, it might not be possible to tour, but that’s a whole other matter.”

This past March, at the final concert of GHOST’s “Prequelle” album cycle in Mexico City, the band introduced the new character who will front the band for its next album. Are ya ready for this? Papa Emeritus IV.
Starting to see a pattern here. But yeah there ya go! Hopefully new GHOST in 2021.
