Candlelight Records has set a March 12 North American release date for “A Eulogy For the Fans – Orange Goblin Live 2012”. The CD/DVD is the first proper live recording from ORANGE GOBLIN and will be released in tandem with the band’s first full stateside tour in over eight years. The special recording kicks off a planned year of non-stop touring and continues the success found in 2012.
Check out a trailer for the set below.
“A Eulogy For The Fans – Orange Goblin Live 2012” includes ORANGE GOBLIN‘s complete performances professionally recorded at Bloodstock Open Air Festival (England – August 11, 2012) and Hellfest (France – June 15, 2012). The DVD further includes the official Tom Cronin-directed videos for “Red Tide Rising” and “Acid Trial”, the latter courtesy of Scion A/V, plus the Matt Chance-directed “Red Tide Rising” documentary and Gaetan Chataigner-directed “Highway To Hellfest” documentary. Art and design was once again provided by Jimbob Isaac under the direction of vocalist Ben Ward.
Discussing the album, Ward says: “For years, people have been asking us to release a live album. It’s a warts-and-all recording to highlight exactly what you get at an ORANGE GOBLIN show. It’s not over-produced; you can hear the bum notes and the forgotten lyrics as well as the energy and power emanating from the stage. And the crowd! I think that’s what a good live album is all about. It’s just the sound of us getting up on stage, plugging in and going hell for leather. Crack open a beer, turn it up loud and bang your head.”
“A Eulogy For the Fans – Orange Goblin Live 2012” features songs that span the band’s extensive repertoire, including fan favorites “Stand For Something”, “Scorpionica”, “Quincy The Pigboy”, “Blue Snow”, “Time Travelling Blues”, and the album’s single, “The Filthy The Few”, which is set to impact loud rock radio on February 26.
ORANGE GOBLIN‘s latest album, “A Eulogy For The Damned”, was released in February 2012 via Candlelight Records. The ten-track offering was recorded at The Animal Farm studio in South London, produced and engineered by Jamie Dodd and mastered two-time Grammy-nominated PINK FLOYD engineer Andy Jackson at Tube Mastering.
“A Eulogy For The Damned” was released on CD and limited-edition colored vinyl in gatefold sleeve.
Formed in 1995 (as OUR HAUNTED KINGDOM), ORANGE GOBLIN has released six full-length albums, developing an enthusiastic fan base that revels in the band’s aggressive sound built on “booze-sodden riffs and attitude.” Longtime label Rise Above Records has reissued the group’s super-heavy back catalog.
