2022 was a hell of a year for Tobias Forge and his band Ghost. They released an awesome new album, titled Impera, as well as went on several tours (including a headlining stadium tour).
And in 2023 Forge and the band have no plans to slow down.
Per a new interview with Metal Hammer, Forge talks about what the band’s plans are for this new year.
He talks about how much touring Ghost will embark on and mentions that some “good change” will be taking place. Here is what he had to say about Ghost’s 2023 plans:
“We’re doing a lot of touring again. On previous album cycles we’ve done four legs in America and two or three in Europe and repeated.
“We’re going to go into every territory next year, but there’s going to be one European tour, one American tour. We are going to do a little bit of everywhere. There’ll be a little bit of something up in upper Asia, on the far end there – a very well-established country with a lot of pop cultural fascination, and the home of videogames. And there’s going to be something in the Oceania world, and there might be something south of Panama, and there might be something slightly north of Panama. It feels pretty solid.
“We’re going to come out with a little bit of change before that – good change. We’re not going to go silent. Some things are public, other things not in public view, but there are a lot of things brewing.”
Alongside this news of touring, Forge is apparently already working on a new Ghost album. Damn, the guy sure does love to work!
What do you think of the band’s latest record, Impera? Will you be making sure to see the band this year if they come to your town/city?
