Long-running United Kingdom-based stoner metal band ORANGE GOBLIN announce a string of U.S. summer tour dates to coincide with their appearance at this year’s edition of the Muddy Roots Fest in Tennessee.
The week-long run of live shows will kick off on August 27th in New York City and will conclude in Los Angeles on September 2nd, with an August 30th stop at Muddy Roots along the way. There they’ll appear alongside such diverse acts as MC50, The Damned, Fishbone, Heavy Temple, The Dwarves, Weedeater, Gallows Bound, Fear, and many more at the annual event.
ORANGE GOBLIN will continue to support their latest album, the critically acclaimed Candlelight Records issued release ‘The Wolf Bites Back’. Support on the trek will be provided by The Skull, Mothership, Wo Fat, and Black Cobra, among others.
Vocalist Ben Ward comments:
“We haven’t been able to tour the U.S. since 2014 so it’s been a long 5 years, but we are excited to be coming back this year for a select few dates. We have gathered an amazing array of supports for this special tour and we can’t wait to bring the Orange Goblin thunder back to our rabid U.S. fan base! Grab your tickets ASAP as these will be the most insane, wild and memorable shows we have done in the U.S., drawing on our full back catalog of material spanning the bands whole career! Let’s have it America, Orange fuckin’ Goblin is back!”
Prior to their trip across the pond to conduct the U.S. jaunt, ORANGE GOBLIN has several U.K. and European live shows and festival stops. These are all included in the itinerary below.
