Orange Goblin Signs To Candlelight Records

Orange Goblin member Ben Ward has posted the following message online:

"Orange Goblin are very proud to announce a new era for the band with the signing to world renowned metal label, Candlelight Records. The number of vastly successful bands on the Candlelight roster is testament to the quality and the hard work that everyone involved in the label has shown us and we are very excited about settling down in a new home after the label problems we have encountered in the past few years. It's an honour to be on such an esteemed label alongside bands that have inspired us since the band's inception. I believe that with the Candlelight team behind Orange Goblin we can concentrate on writing the best material of our career and continue to tour as much as possible, hopefully reaching parts of the world that Orange Goblin is yet to plunder! We have already started writing new material for a release in 2009 and OG fans, in fact metal fans in general, are gonna love how the new stuff is sounding. It's gonna be a hugh combination of Sabbath-inspired doom, filthy biker blues and more of the familiar booze-ridden Goblin groove. Hold tight!"

"Orange Goblin are very sorry to announce that due to problems beyond their control, the shows this weekend in Athens and Thessaloniki (Greece) have been cancelled.

Everyone in Orange Goblin would like to apologise to the Greek fans and hope that we can arrange something at a later date to make up for it.

The band would like to thank all the fans that came out to help make the European Plague Invasion tour so successful. The band had a great time and look forward to seeing everyone on the road again soon. Also, a massive thanks must go out to our new brothers in ASTROSONIQ for all their help and friendship that made the tour such a blast.

The venue for the Orange Goblin show on Friday, November 9th, The Attic in Rushden, is closing down! Therefore the promoters are moving the show to an alternative venue in nearby Northampton. We will let you know the name of the venue as soon as it is confirmed!"
