British doomsters ORANGE GOBLIN have issued the following update:

"ORANGE GOBLIN have been announced as headliners for this years Stoned Hands Of Doom Festival in Rome, Italy. The festival, now in its third year, takes place at the Jailbreak [in] Rome on Saturday, May 26th. There is also a pre-festival party at the Sinister Noise Club, Rome on Friday, May 25th, which will feature DJ sets from members of ORANGE GOBLIN and Walter from ROADBURN. This festival will also act as a launch party in Europe for the new ORANGE GOBLIN album ('Healing Through Fire'),scheduled for a worldwide release on May 20th (via Sanctuary). As well as ORANGE GOBLIN, other bands appearing will be SOLACE, COLOUR HAZE and many more to be announced. ORANGE GOBLIN have also added another date to the short tour of Ireland in June. ORANGE GOBLIN will now appear at Mason's in Londonderry on Sunday 24th June with support from TRIGGERMAN. There will be European dates in September announced very soon and more U.K. shows are confirmed for later in the year."

Production on the new ORANGE GOBLIN album, "Healing through Fire", will be handled by Mark Daghorn, who has recently worked with MENDEED, CRADLE OF FILTH and many more, as well as being involved in the two previous ORANGE GOBLIN albums. According to the band, the next record will definitely be a progression from 2004's "Thieving from the House of God" and will be based on its local history. Vocalist Ben Ward states that "it's not a concept album at all but we are using the theme of the Great Plague of London and the Great Fire that followed for a lot of lyrical and musical influence. It's definitely the strongest material we have written."

ORANGE GOBLIN filmed its December 16 show at The Mean Fiddler in London for an upcoming DVD.
