The mask fell (on purpose) to the leader of the Ghost.The Swedish Tobias Forge, who had his identity revealed some time ago because of a lawsuit that former bandmates moved against him, decided to take off the makeup and props he wears on rock band performances and gave his first interview with clean face throughout his career.
In his talk with iHeartRadio, Forge spoke about the past, present and future of the band, and said he already knows exactly what Ghost’s next studio album will be, but he has no plans yet to record it.
The group’s latest album is Prequelle, released in 2018.
Watch his interview with no mask just below:
