ORANGE GOBLIN To Join Forces With Doom Metal Icons SAINT VITUS On UK, Ireland And European Tour; October And November 2014
ORANGE GOBLIN will join forces for a massive co-headline tour this October and November with none other than the legendary Kings of Doom Metal, SAINT VITUS, who are celebrating their 35th Anniversary on this tour and performing their classic album ‘Born Too Late’ in it’s entirety. Orange Goblin will be promoting their 8th (as yet untitled) studio album, due for release via Candlelight Records in the Autumn. This is all doom metal and stoner rock fans dreams come true as these titans of the scene join forces for the first time.
OG vocalist Ben Ward had this to say, “We are extremely excited to be going on tour with our good friends and long-time heroes Saint Vitus. Vitus are one of the bands that inspired us to form Orange Goblin all those years ago and to be able to promote our new album and celebrate their 35th anniversary at the same time just blows my mind. This tour is going to be awesome. DOOM!!!!”
