Swedish metallers Ghost have once again confirmed plans to enter studio this fall, making the possibility of previously hinted 2015 release quite realistic.

Chatting with Elliott of Little Punk People, the cool kid that recently discussed the art of farting Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan, the band's Nameless Ghoul touched on an abundance of awesome topics, but also shared album plans.

If you want to check out Ghoul's opinion on the matter of Papa Emeritus being more evil than Darth Vader, or Papa becoming the mayor of New York City, or the experience of meeting Ace Frehley, check out the clip below.

As for the album plans, the fresh info aligns with the previously announced October/November rough schedule.

"In October/November, something like that, we're gonna record, so a fair estimate would be spring time of 2015," the guitarist told Metal Trails back in January.

As the Ghoul further explained, the band needs to grow commercially in order to grow esthetically. "It will be a different sort of era," he said about the shift. "We're just sort of building, it'll get cleared out as we go along.

"We want to be able to produce the show that we've always been talking about and that means automatically that we need to grow commercially, because if you expect your show to be sort of big and grand and playing in big places, obviously you need to have a certain fold, you need to have a certain X amount of people interested in coming and seeing that," he added.

"So obviously there's a commercial goal that needs to be happening more or less in order to achieve the aesthetic goal. The aesthetic goal is always much more important, but in order to do that you need to have resources," the musician concluded.

    This interview was terrible. He should have interviewed A Nameless Ghoul, not A Nameless Ghoul.
    My favorite member is A Nameless Ghoul. My least favorite is A Nameless Ghoul.
    Am I missing something here?
    it's a thinker
    No i'm not making a joke. I honestly have no idea what they mean
    All of the instrument players in Ghost are called "A Nameless Ghoul" as a part of their gimmick/personality. They're referring to the other A Nameless Ghouls that are in the band (There's 5 of them). Cpt. Obvious out.
    I cannot be any more ready for this, Infestissumam is one of my favorite albums ever and I have high hopes for the next one
    "Elliott of Little Punk People, the cool kid that recently discussed the art of farting Ben Weinman of Dillinger Escape Plan" Wut
    Am I the only one who is extremely jealous of this child? ˚‧º·(˚ ˃̣̣̥᷄⌓˂̣̣̥᷅ )‧º·˚
    I listened to Ghost before it was cool :> Glad to see their successful though. Good to see that people are optimistic about them.
