The UK’s ORANGE GOBLIN have unveiled more details of their new studio album, “The Wolf Bites Back“.
The news includes the album artwork, track-list and the premiere of its first single “Sons Of Salem“. The follow-up to the band’s Back From The Abyss release will arrive from Universal/Candlelight Records on June 15th.
“The Wolf Bites Back” was recorded at Orgone Studios and produced by Jaime Gomez Arellano (Ghost, Grave Pleasures, Paradise Lost, Cathedral). The album’s cover artwork was designed by Familiar Ink’s Roland Scriver.
ORANGE GOBLIN frontman Ben Ward offered some insight to the “Sons Of Salem” track saying: “Sons of Salem is the first track on the album and we consider it an Orange Goblin anthem. We see this song being a staple of the live set with the singalong chorus and the awesome, catchy riff.
“A mean and moody intro to the album that sets the tone throughout. It’s short, sweet and straight to the point.
“The lyrics are about the sons of the Salem witches returning from the grave to seek vengeance on the religious fools that murdered their mothers during the witch trials.”
“The Wolf Bites Back” is available for pre-order now, along with some other amazing merch, at the newly-launched ORANGE GOBLIN official website HERE.
