Ghost’s Tobias Forge Talks About Writing a Rock Opera
During a recent interview with The Metal Voice, Ghost leader and frontman Tobias Forge was asked if he’d ever consider writing a Ghost concept album. Here’s how he replied:
“The next album will be more thematically in the same vein as the previous one, Prequelle.
“But I can definitely see doing a concept like a rock opera in the future. If I ever make a rock opera, it probably won’t be a rock record but more like classical, like the stuff you would hear in a musical, more [of a] score.”
While any such concept album or rock opera is seemingly far off, Forge previously revealed his plans to put out a new Ghost album in late 2020 or early 2021. Meanwhile the band will embark upon their first-ever North American arena tour this coming fall before doing the same in Europe.
