Please rest assured that it will happen but sometimes it is better to stop and think of what is best for Orange Goblin as a band!"

"It is with great sadness that we have to inform you that due to circumstances beyond the bands control, SOLACE will NOT be performing at the Orange Goblin show at The Scala, London on Saturday 19th December 2009.
"Boston's kings of Rock, ROADSAW will now be main support. The bill also features Centurions Ghost, Sons of Merrick and we are very happy to announce the addition of HONKEYFINGER!!! People may be familiar with Mr. Honkeyfinger as he guested on the track 'Beginner's Guide To Suicide' on the last OG album 'Healing Through Fire'! Honkeyfinger is the one man band from the bowels of the earth, erupting molten fuzz lapsteel, screaming harmonica riffs and desperate bestial howling in a scorching hot cocktail of heavy raw blues power. The Honkeyfinger sound hotwires the electric freak rock of vintage Beefheart, Blue Cheer, ZZTop, and Black Sabbath into a jumping, lurching monster. Boiling up the ghosts of Bukka White, Leadbelly and John Lee Hooker with the bones of the country blues, laced with the acid fried heaviosity of the Buttholes Surfers - this is the thick stinking soup that Mr.Honkeyfinger serves.
"Tickets for this show are selling out fast and numbers available on the door will be limited so to avoid disappointment please purchase yours in advance at this location or via The Scala box office (020 7833 2022)"
