Tobias Forge Says Ghost Will Probably Record A New Album In Spring 2020

During a recent interview with Loudwire, Tobias Forge revealed that Ghost will not have time to record a new full-length album until 2020. He said the following:

“From our perspective, at least, 2019 is already over. That doesn’t limit me from writing or starting the steps, but when it comes to having a consecutive three months [for] studio time, there is no such time in 2019. That will happen, probably, in Spring 2020. Then you have to add like three months of waiting between recording and releasing. So yeah, you see where I’m going.”

Former Ghost Members Request New Trial Against Tobias Forge, Allege Forge & Judge Both Have Ties To Swedish Order Of Freemasons

It was previously revealed that the lawsuit filed against Ghost frontman Tobias Forge (aka Cardinal Copia/Papa Emertius) by former members Simon Söderberg, Mauro Rubino, Henrik Palm, and Martin Hjertstedt had been dismissed following a six-day trial in the Linköping District Court in Linköping, Sweden. However, NT.se are now reporting that the ex-members are requesting a new trial.

Attorney Michael Berg, who is representing the former members, is claiming there was a conflict of interest due to Forge and Judge Henrik Ibold both allegedly having ties to the same branch of the Swedish Order Of Freemasons. Ibold says he wasn’t aware of Forge’s involvement in the society, but he did admit to hearing rumors about it. Forge‘s lawyer has declined to comment.

The former members originally filed the lawsuit after claiming they did not receive proper payment for their musical contributions and tours, and that they were not allowed to see any financial records from 2011-2016. They also claimed the band was a partnership despite the fact that Forge denied those claims repeatedly.

Testimony by various key witnesses was heard and the district court decided there was not enough convincing evidence to prove a partnership existed. They also ordered the former members to pay Forge‘s legal fees. Forge claimed over 2 million kronor in fees, but the court decided 1.3 million kronor (roughly $145,000 USD) was more reasonable.

Tobias Forge Says Ghost May Make A Live Concert Film

During a recent interview with Revolver, Tobias Forge was asked about the rumors of a new Ghost release in 2019. He responded by saying that “there might be something coming next year” and that he is “keen” on making a live concert film at some point.

Forge said the following:

“There might be something coming next year. As an active person, I’ve spent some time in the studio, but we’ll see. We’re still sort of planning the year out. But as of right now, there’s no plan for another covers EP. I think that would be a little predictable. I’m all for recording covers in the future, but we’re definitely not going to do one that comes out in 2019. And even though we made a live record last year, the one thing I am very keen on is making a film, for lack of another phrase. I really want to make a capture of our live show. Since the live record, which I think is very good, we sound way better now. We’re a better band, and now with everything being performed organically, it’s a different being. It sounds way bigger and maybe lends itself to a film better. So we’ll see.”
