Ghost released their fourth studio album Prequelle just a few months ago, but that doesn’t seem to have made people any less curious as to when the band will be dropping any more new music.
While we wouldn’t be opposed to some new music soon, it appears that the band’s frontman is going to be taking the production process a little slower for their next release.
According to a new interview with Loudwire, the band’s frontman explained that fans will have to wait for quite some time for a follow-up to this year’s Prequelle, where he shared that the band won’t be putting out any new music until 2020.
The reason? They’ve got so much going on it 2019 tour-wise, that adding an album might be pushing their time limits:
“From our perspective, at least, 2019 is already over,” Forge said. “That year is already done…That doesn’t limit me from writing or starting the steps, but when it comes to having a consecutive three month’s studio time, there is no such time in 2019. That will happen, probably, spring 2020. Then you have to add like three months of waiting between recording and releasing.”

While the band might not be releasing any new music for another year, that doesn’t mean the band’s frontman hasn’t thought about what the forthcoming release could entail.
It was recently reported that the band’s frontman shared that new material could be coming from the band, and it won’t be just an EP worth of covers! The frontman shared the news with ROCK 100.5, as pointed out by Theprp.com, where he explained:
“My intention is not to release just another EP of covers,” says the Ghost frontman who is formerly known as Papa Emeritus. “There might be something else coming out next year, maybe, that might have been recorded already, that won’t be covers.”
We may not be getting an album anytime soon, but we’re still pretty excited to know that a brand new record will be on the horizons in about a year or so!
The summer tour kicks off May 1 in Lisbon, Portugal and it wraps up a couple of months later on Aug. 25 in Mannheim, Germany. For further information, you can go to the band’s website.
