2013 will see Orange Goblin embark on their biggest touring schedule EVER as they continue to promote the critically acclaimed ‘A EULOGY FOR THE DAMNED’ album, released in February 2012 on Candlelight Records and hotly tipped to be a contender for the album of the year polls.
The touring schedule will kick off with a 15 date UK TOUR at the end of January and start of February, dates of which are to be announced soon. We are also very happy to announce that the band will then head to AUSTRALIA for the very first time ever to join the SOUNDWAVE FESTIVAL 2013 (alongside Metallica, Slayer, Anthrax, Blink 182, Linkin Park, Kyuss Lives!, Ghost, Red Fang, The Sword, Gallows and many more). The full dates for Soundwave 2013 are as follows:
SAT 23rd FEB – BRISBANE – RNA SHOWGROUNDS
SUN 24th FEB – SYDNEY – OLYMPIC PARK
FRI 1st MAR – MELBOURNE – FLEMINGTON RACECOURSE
SAT 2nd MAR – ADELAIDE – BONYTHON PARK
MON 4th MAR – PERTH – CLAREMONT SHOWGROUND
There will be a handful of club shows in AUSTRALIA to coincide with the band’s appearances at Soundwave, more details on those coming very soon.
Directly after this, throughout March and April, the band will embark on a full tour of the USA & CANADA, including an appearance at the SXSW Festival in Texas. The CANADA dates will be the first the band has played there EVER. Full dates for this are also to be announced very shortly.
The band will then spend the summer extensively touring EUROPE and appearing at as many of the summer EUROPEAN FESTIVALS as they can squeeze in before heading back to NORTH AMERICA and hopefully CENTRAL & SOUTH AMERICA, ASIA, JAPAN & NEW ZEALAND.
