Recently, Ghost frontman Tobias Forge teased that, this year, we may be getting new music from the band. Last year, Ghost released an awesome record titled Impera; so while it hasn’t been too long since the band gave us new tunes, it would be awesome to hear even more from Ghost.

This tease came up during a recent conversation that Forge took part in with OUI FM. During this conversation, Forge was asked about the band possibly playing a “By Request” tour; a “By Request” tour would involve fans voting for what songs they would like to hear Ghost perform at a given concert.

Speaking of such a concept, and teasing the potential release of new Ghost music, Forge shares the following (which was transcribed by Loudwire):

“Even though we’re obviously changing things . . . it’s more from a practical point of view. This tour that we’re starting . . . [will see us] changing a few things around. . . .

“The thing is that we always try to change things around, and now just because there has been – there are going to be a few changes. There might be, between now and then, there might be new music. Um, I’m just saying!

“So, that’s going to be a little bit different. It’s going to be a different setup. If we ever do a ‘by request’ [tour] – in a way, I wouldn’t be against doing a poll of what people want to hear. But, on the other hand, it’s like, songs that we aren’t playing regularly, there might be a reason for them not being played.

“Because of, usually, from a practical point of view that they’re . . . when I’m saying, ‘hard to play,’ that is not a dare to online YouTube guitar players [who’re] saying, ‘They’re not hard at all!’ That’s not the point. Sometimes, a song can be hard to play well, so it sounds good. So, it feels good. So it fits well in the set.

“In the future, there might be an alternative that we’ve discussed . . . where it might come a time where we do a set that’s completely different from the one we have now. Then, you can rework so that it’s fluent with just the odd numbers.”
