British doomsters ORANGE GOBLIN have issued the following update:
"Songwriting for the next ORANGE GOBLIN album is ongoing but looks very promising with the skeletons of four or five new songs already in place. Two rough working titles for the new songs so far include 'Red Tide Rising' and 'The Bishop's Wolf'."
ORANGE GOBLIN previously announced that it had postponed the recording sessions for the band's new album "due to unforeseen circumstances." According to the group, "complications beyond the band's control have meant that we have fallen behind schedule with the writing process and a decision was made to put the recording back to ensure that we deliver the best album possible. [Producer] Sanford Parker [NACHTMYSTIUM, LAIR OF THE MINOTAUR, PELICAN, RWAKE, UNEARTHLY TRANCE, VENOMOUS CONCEPT, MINSK, BURIED AT SEA] will still be in the producer's chair when we do hit the studio. We apologize to the fans, but can assure them that it will be worth the wait!"
ORANGE GOBLIN's performance at the Roadburn Festival in Tilburg, Holland on April 23, 2009 was scheduled to be recorded for a limited-edition, vinyl-only live album.
The band's latest CD, "Healing through Fire", was released in May 2007 through Sanctuary Records. The album was initially released as a CD with a bonus DVD featuring live footage from the band's headline show at London's Mean Fiddler in December 2006.
Angel Of Metal conducted an interview with ORANGE GOBLIN at the Hard Rock Hell II festival, which was held in early December 2008 in Prestatyn, Wales, U.K. Watch the 10-minute chat below.
