Ghost Announce Late Fall 2019 European Tour
The Clergy has another announcement, and Ghost fans should be pretty happy. The band will bring “The Ultimate Tour Named Death” to Europe to finish out the year, with a just over a month’s worth of shows taking place in November and December.
The trek gets underway in the U.K. in Nottingham on Nov. 16 and travels through Poland, the Czech Republic, Hungary, Italy, Switzerland, Spain, Portugal, France and Luxembourg before wrapping on Dec. 19 in Toulouse, France. The cities are listed below and ticketing info can be found here. Tickets go on sale this Friday (July 12).
The band will be bringing All Them Witches and Tribulation along for this run of dates. All Them Witches released their ATW album last year, while Tribulation are also promoting a 2018 release, Down Below.
Ghost continue their run in support of last year’s Prequelle album, but leader Tobias Forge recently stated that the band has plans to start work on their next release in 2020. The singer revealed he’d begin work in January, with maybe a few small things left to take care of before fully focusing on new music.
"People need to understand that I spend about five to six months in the studio. … I also try to work 'normal' hours because I have a family also so, I try to work traditional hours, you know. I like to come in on Monday morning at about 9 AM/10 AM and then I do normal stuff like have lunch and think about what’s going on, and then I wrap up for the day and head home and see my family,” said Forge, later adding, "In order to make that record, it's gonna take me about six months and then that's gonna take me to the summer, which we've already decided we're gonna take a break a let the dust settle, and then hopefully by the end of the summer the record will be finished.”
However, those hoping for a late 2020 release should prepare for disappointment, as the singer stated he thought the album might be delayed so as not to compete with the U.S. presidential election.
