Orange Goblin Announce First U.S. Tour Dates in Five Years

The legendary stoner-metal troupe have announced their first U.S. tour since 2014.

Orange Goblin are returning to the USA! The British heavy metal band have announced their first US tour dates since 2014. Formed in 1995, the band will be touring in support of their ninth full-length, The Wolf Bites Back, which was released in June last year.

We have an amazing array of supports lined up for this special tour and we can’t wait to bring the Orange Goblin thunder back to our rabid U.S. fan base! Grab your tickets now as these will be the most wild and memorable shows we have done in the U.S., drawing on our full back catalogue of material spanning the bands whole career, including material from last years The Wolf Bites Back’ album!
