    GOBLIN/ SECRET CHIEFS 3 to tour North America in Oct

    Long awaited landing of Goblin in North America

    Almost 40 years removed from their debut, cult legends Goblin will launch their first ever North American tour this October. The tour will start October 1st in Atlanta and will culminate with a two night run of performances in Austin, TX at the Housecore Horror Film Festival on Oct 25 and 27.

    The Italian Soundtrack Kings will perform all of their classic cuts, including scores from Deep Red, Suspiria, Tenebrae, Dawn of the Dead, Phenomena, Sleepless and other songs that are milestones among prog rock followers, including songs from Roller, Il fantastico Viaggio del Bagarozzo Mark, and most recently Back to the Goblin. Other famous scores never performed live anywhere will be included on this tour.

    First signals of a reunion started 8 years ago when Massimo Morante and Maurizio Guarini, together with other members of Goblin, released a new album, Back to the Goblin, after a long absence. The band felt it was time to expose the music to new generations of fans and invigorate their loyal following. In 2009, Goblin started touring the world, hitting the major European cities including Rome, Paris, London, Berlin and many others (in 2010 Claudio Simonetti re-joined the band). The band found the tour to be a great success, and the fan base kept growing, bringing back the old enthusiastic crowds of the seventies and converting new fans of all ages along the way. To follow this up, in 2011/2012 the band ventured to Japan and Australia and met the same enthusiasm. This led to an increased desire to come to North America as a full band for the first time ever.

    The tour will include a small amount of VIP ticketing, allowing fans to meet the band, get up close, see part of the soundcheck, and walk away with commemorative poster. Also, during the tour the band will be selling an exclusive tour EP put out by Death Waltz Records. The EP features brand new versions of Classic Goblin tracks re-recorded by the recently reunited band. The EP will be pressed on blood red 180g vinyl and feature an exclusive cover design by poster artist Graham Humphrey's (Evil Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street).

    The line up for this tour will include original members since 1975 Claudio Simonetti and Maurizio Guarini (keyboards) and Massimo Morante (guitar). The band is rounded out by drummer Titta Tani and bassist Bruno Previtali that joined in 2010.
    Support on the tour (up to October 20) will come from the Northern California based Secret Chiefs 3, formed by Mr. Bungle founding member Trey Spruance. Secret Chiefs 3 have developed quite a cult following of their own over the last 15 years with their blend of other worldly psychedelic rhythms and melodies.

    Dates for the tour are as follows:

    Oct 1 Atlanta, GA/ The Loft
    Oct 3 Asheville, NC/ The Orange Peel
    Oct 4 Baltimore, MD/ Otto Bar
    Oct 5 Philadelphia, PA/ Underground Arts

    Oct 27 Austin, TX/ Housecore Horror Film Festival

    Wow! Goblin at the Opera House?! Never thought I'd see the day.
    Really hoping for a Seinfeld DVD reissue series that removes the hideous bass guitar every 30 seconds.

    Where many of us nearly died approximately one year ago at the Marillion show where it was about 50 degrees Celsius inside the venue, and people were passing out all over the place. Awful. Seen quite a few good bands there but always walk out exhausted and sore.

    I made my mind up a few years back, that I wouldn't attend any more shows at these stand up dumps that Toronto passes off as venues. Regardless, on that date, I'll be on my way to the New Jersey Proghouse. BTW, Goblin keysman Maurizio Guarini's show at the Lula Lounge, which is a great venue, was awesome!!

    Wow! They're actually coming to L.A? I'm totally jazzed! Loved them ever since I heard "Roller" back in the day. They have certainly contributed to 'the house of dark prog"...a place where I live. Can't wait!
    Day dawns dark...it now numbers infinity.

    This is absolutely unbelievable and so very welcome.

    My concern is some of these venues are very large! I hope they feel they are accurately gauging demand.

    Well...Ottobar in Baltimore is pretty reasonably sized, all things considered. They probably could've gone slightly bigger even.

    Having Secret Chiefs 3 on the bill will pull in quite a few people.
