Sitting down with 100.5 The KATT last month, Forge briefly spoke about the band’s next plans, saying:

“I know what we’re gonna do next time, yes. It will be a work in progress up until the day that I master the album, but I know where the story sort of goes. And with simple mathematics of how a tour cycle usually pans out — a record comes out, you tour for 18 months, then you go back into the studio, that takes six, seven months, and then it’s 18 more months — I think we have a five-year plan.

Forge then shared that he has another project that is in the works, one that will take “a ton of collaboration.”

“And then I have another project at the end of that tunnel that might or might not materialize. It’s a little bit of a side thing that takes a ton of collaboration and many stars aligning. And that’s been in the works for years. So we will see if that happens. But that is as far as I can see right now.”

Forge recently discussed his views on rock music today. In a recent interview on Full Metal Jackie’s radio show, he shared:

“From a professional point of view, I think it means that rock music needs to step up. We need to have new, bigger bands. Bands need to step up and try to fill these spots,” the Ghost frontman continued.

“I definitely don’t think that rock is dead in any way. But I think that there has been a lack of new talent or new ambition,” Forge said, according to Loudwire.

“Fifteen-year-olds that maybe are listening to this show right now, you are the ones that need to create these new bands. You are the ones that are going to be the big band ten years from now,” he shared.

Ghost are currently on a world tour in support of their latest album, Prequelle.
