Orange Goblin have confirmed that they’ve begun writing material for what will be their 10th studio album.

The UK outfit hope to release the follow-up to 2014’s Back From The Abyss in May or June next year via Spinefarm Records/Universal. It will be produced by Jamie Gomez Arellano who has previously worked with artists including Ghost and Paradise Lost.

While Orange Goblin haven’t yet revealed full details on the as-yet-untitled record, they have revealed that former Motorhead guitarist Phil Campbell will make a guest appearance.

The band have also announced a run of shows which will take place over the coming weeks and months, including sets at the UK’s HRH Doom v Stoner festival on September 30 and Ozzfest Meets Knotfest in California on November 4.
