British rock legends Orange Goblin have revealed their new single Sons Of Salem. The track is lifted from their forthcoming album The Wolf Bites Back, set for release through Universal/Candlelight Records on June 15.
Vocalist Ben Ward says; “Sons of Salem is the first track on the album and we consider it an Orange Goblin anthem. We see this song being a staple of the live set with the singalong chorus and the awesome, catchy riff. A mean and moody intro to the album that sets the tone throughout, it’s short, sweet and straight to the point. The lyrics are about the sons of the Salem witches returning from the grave to seek vengeance on the religious fools that murdered their mothers during the witch trials.”

The band have also revealed the artwork for the new record. It was created by Roland Scriver (Familiar Ink) and Ben explains; “We wanted something dark, menacing, striking and memorable all at once and we feel that Roland has certainly delivered that. We think it has the look of an iconic cover, one that you will recognise for years to come and one that perfectly represents the music on the record. The wolf is such an amazing beast. The wolf is predatory, vicious and a merciless hunter but at the same time so determined, smart, cunning and beautiful and the portrayal of the wolf about to strike on the cover is a great representation of the way we felt when writing this album.”
