ORANGE GOBLIN To Kick Off North American Live Takeover

orange_goblin_2014

Following their mammothly successful tour through Europe alongside Saint Vitus, UK stoner metal icons, ORANGE GOBLIN, will bring their heavy grooves Stateside next month for a two-week bout of live takeovers supporting Down. Slated to embark December 1st in San Antonio, the trek will run through fifteen cities, coming to a close on December 21st in Houston. Additional support will come from Bl’ast and King Parrot.

 

ORANGE GOBLIN will be touring in support of their road-raging, Back From The Abyss full-length, released last month via Candlelight Records. Produced by Jamie Dodd, who worked with the band on 2012’s chart-topping A Eulogy For The Damned long player, Back From The Abyss has been reaping mass approval from fans and media globally. In an 8/10 review, Decibel Magazine notes, “Pegging OG as simply a ‘stoner’ or ‘doom’ band these days is a little shortsighted. They range from epic, classic-ish metal (‘Heavy Lies The Crown’) to Motörhead-inspired thunderbolts (‘The Devil’s Whip’) while maintaining a soulful bluesy vibe wherever they travel musically,” Ghost Cult christens the record, “a must listen stoner album for the year,” and About.com commends, “another fine slab of metal sludge that oozes into your pores and latches onto your metal soul.” This Is Not A Scene agrees in a 9/10 review, calling Back From The Abyss, “another triumph for ORANGE GOBLIN,” and, “their most accomplished album to date.” In an 8.5/10 verdict, Blabbermouth boasts, “Back From The Abyss is everything ORANGE GOBLIN fans are craving: a bit of Black Sabbath, a bit of Motörhead and a whole lotta cool… where even fifty-four minutes doesn’t seem like enough,” while The AngryMetalGuy calls the record, “a manly, punch drunk listen, full of beans and ready to rumble. It may even grow some extra hair on your chest, if you’re into that kind of thing. Goats everywhere should be worried.”
