During a recent interview with Revolver, Tobias Forge talked a bit about Ghost’s upcoming plans. The frontman is currently working on a new movie related to the band and is also planning their new album, which he says will be “darker” and “heavier.”
Forge said the following about the film, which he hopes to finish shooting by the end of the year:
“Most films about bands are biographical, and I see no reason to tell our story yet. It’s a little bit like premature ejaculation. You have to have a career first and then you can tell the real story, so that was never an option. And when you yank away that, what do you have? Well, that would be a fictional story.”
“The cog wheels are turning on that one. We’re just trying to figure out a lot of the practicalities. Making a film is a big endeavor. Another problem that I have had over the course of my career is that I don’t have a shit-ton of time. I am also a father of two kids and I’m married.
I try to not to break my back. I’ve been so close so many times to overworking and I said yes to everything just because I was so keen on not losing momentum. I’ve learned over the years that it’s really important not to do everything at once.”
Forge also had the following to say about Ghost’s new album, which they are planning to work on in January:
“I want to make a different record from ‘Prequelle“. I want it to feel different. If I dare to say heavier, people think that it’s going to be Mercyful Fate all the way … but I definitely have a darker, heavier record in mind.”
Furthermore, the band are also planning to release more webisodes in the coming months.
