Orange Goblin have released a stream of The Wolf Bites Back.

It’s the title track from the UK outfit’s upcoming ninth studio album, which will arrive on June 15 via Universal/Candlelight Records. The new song follows Sons Of Salem (opens in new tab) which the band revealed back in April.

Listen to it below.

Orange Goblin frontman Ben Ward said: “We are very excited about this new album. The Wolf Bites Back is our strongest and most diverse collection of songs to date – it’s certainly a lot darker both musically and lyrically.

“It is still definitely a distinct Orange Goblin album, but we have incorporated a lot more variation on this record and there are hints of Can, Captain Beyond, Wishbone Ash and The Stooges nestling amongst the obvious Sabbath and Motorhead influences.

“Lyrically I have explored everything from alien serial killers to zombie biker gangs, Buddhist warriors through to descendants of the Salem witches!”

Orange Goblin have several festival appearances lined up throughout the summer. Find details below.
