Orange Goblin Stream New Song “Sons Of Salem”

Orange Goblin are streaming a new song titled “Sons Of Salem.” This track is from the band’s new album “The Wolf Bites Back,” which will be released on June 15.

Ben Ward commented:

“‘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 band have also revealed the cover art for “The Wolf Bites Back.” Ward said the following about that:

“We wanted something dark, menacing, striking and memorable all at once and we feel that Roland [Scriver] has certainly delivered that. We think it has the look of an iconic cover, one that you will recognize for years to come and one that perfectly represents the music on the record.

The wolf is such an amazing beast. The wolf is predatory, vicious and a merciless hunter but at the same time so determined, smart, cunning and beautiful and the portrayal of the wolf about to strike on the cover is a great representation of the way we felt when writing this album.”

Orange Goblin To Release New Album “The Wolf Bites Back” In June

Orange Goblin have confirmed that their new album “The Wolf Bites Back” will be released in June. The band recorded the effort at Orgone Studios with producer Jaime Gomez Arellano, and it will feature nine tracks including: “Son Of Salem”, “Ghost Of The Primitives”, “Burn The Ships”, “Zeitgeist” and “Suicide Division”.

Vocalist Ben Ward commented

“We are very excited about this new album. The Wolf Bites Back is our strongest and most diverse collection of songs to date, it’s certainly a lot darker both musically and lyrically. It is still definitely a distinct ORANGE GOBLIN album but we have incorporated a lot more variation on this record and there are hints of Can, Captain Beyond, Wishbone Ash and The Stooges nestling amongst the obvious Sabbath and Motorhead influences. Lyrically I have explored everything from alien serial killers to zombie biker gangs, Buddhist warriors through to descendants of the Salem witches!”

“There was definitely a concerted effort to make sure all the songs could work in a live environment which gives the album a more raw, stripped back feel – something that I feel has been lacking from good rock and metal in recent years. Working with Jaime Gomez Arellano was really productive and a great experience, especially going back to tracking stuff to tape. I feel that he got the best out of all of us as musicians and songwriters and that really comes across in the songs, there is an air of confidence and experience. It was also a real honour for us to have Phil Campbell of Motorhead lending his hand to a couple of solos on there too!”
