“It will definitely be an upgrade,” Forge, who will be introducing his new character Cardinal Copia, tells Billboard.”
“We have a bigger band now in terms of personnel,” Forge says, “so it’s way more live now. Before we were doing a little bit of the modern trickery, with backing tracks and stuff to make the whole sound a certain way. Now we’re taking that away so we’re a little more like a Springsteen or Guns N’ Roses sort of band with backup singers and everything. It feels great. It’s gonna be the best version yet — but there’s still a lot to come after that.”
