Ghost frontman Tobias Forge has shared the recent informations about the band. He spoke in an interview with Ultimate-Guitar.
He said that he working on new materials for new album but the album probably will arive in 2020.
Here’s the statement:
“I bulk up a lot of ideas — little segments and some stuff are real songs from start to finish and some are just parts and this is the verse and this is the chorus. Then by the time we’re done touring, that’s when I like to go with the producer and start going through it all and make sure we have an album’s worth of material…
That’s the thing that takes time. The actual tracking of the record might be two months, maybe, but the writing and the rewriting and the pondering, that’s what takes two to three months. That’s when you write, write, write, write, rewrite, rewrite, kill that song, re-record it again in a different tempo. Change that. Take the chorus from that song and move it over there.”
He also talked about how he rule the band. He said “I’m a band dictator” and continued:
“I wasn’t letting people in with the music writing process, and for a long time, I thought I was hard to work with. But I noticed when I worked with [Swedish producer] Klas Åhlund [on 2015’s ‘Meliora’ album] and others later than that that I can work with people perfectly fine just as long as I get to decide if I wanna work with someone or not.
But what usually happens in a band is people impose their ideas and try to crowbar themselves into the process and that’s not a good idea. When you have a fruitful relationship with someone, and you’ve both chosen to work together, then it can spawn really good things.”
Ghost’s latest album “Prequelle” was released on June 1, 2018.
