Orange Goblin have been busy working away on their ninth studio record and are now ready to unleash all the details along with a brand new track! The Wolf Bites Back is due for release on 15th June via Universal/Candlelight Records.

Commenting on the new record, vocalist Ben Gazey touched on the impact producer Jaime 'Gomez' Arellano had - "Gomez has a very new, custom built studio in a really remote part of the English countryside so there are zero distractions and we were totally focused on the job at hand. We gave ourselves plenty of time so the vibe was relaxed and almost experimental. We were trying out new sounds and working with equipment and instruments that we may not have considered in the past. Gomez was like a fifth member of the band, constantly making useful suggestions. I think that the band's playing and songwriting on this album are the best they've ever been. It's a huge wall of sound and Gomez has recorded and mixed it perfectly."

Check out the brand new track Sons Of Salem below! A track Ben Gazey is very excited about, "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."
