TOBIAS FORGE Shoots Down Suggestion DAVE GROHL Is Continuing To Collaborate With GHOST

During a recent conversation with Loudwire, GHOST leader Tobias Forge shot down the suggestion that Dave Grohl is collaborating with the band. Aside from producing and playing both drums and guitar on the 2013 EP "If You Have Ghost", Forge says the FOO FIGHTERS frontman has only served "as an inspriration, not much more than that."

He adds, "Of course, FOO FIGHTERS have been very supportive fans and took us out on the road, but nothing more than that. He's not been sort of involved in other records, if that is what people are thinking."

Earlier in the month, Forge revealed to Finland's Kaaos TV that he will record one new song in January before getting to work on GHOST's fifth album.

He explained: "After New Year's, I'm gonna go into the studio. First, I'm gonna record one song that's gonna be part of something that we will know of in the year from now. So that's the first thing... that's gonna be the first or second week in January — after that, I'm just gonna start full time, Monday through Friday, being in the studio writing."

Forge did not reveal where the standalone song will surface, but he added that he''ll continue writing through May, with plans to enter the studio on June 1. He remarked: "Hopefully then we're gonna start recording the drums for all these 15 songs — something like that — I'm gonna write. Some of them are written, some of them are in bits and pieces, and some of them I don't know yet."

The musician, who plays most instruments on GHOST's albums except drums, added that he wants to create songs meant to be played in large venues, saying: "Making a new fifth album means that I'm gonna continue writing songs that will sound great on [an arena stage]."

The new GHOST album will be out in early 2021 and will follow up 2018's "Prequelle", which contained the rock radio hits "Rats" and "Dance Macabre".
