Goblin U.S. Tour: News
If there is one thing I love as much as the films of Italian horror maestro Dario Argento, it is the amazing soundtracks that the prog-rock band Goblin provided for some of his best films. Classics like Suspiria and Deep Red, just wouldn’t be the same without the sinister bass lines and keyboards that the band laid down for them.
Rejoice fellow U.S. Goblin fans, as you are about to get your chance to see the band perform some of their classic theme songs live stateside for the first time…ever. Not only that, but fiends in attendance for the upcoming U.S. Tour will also get to witness a rare 35mm screening of Argento’s classic giallo, Deep Red. In addition to General Admission tickets, there will also be a very limited number of VIP tickets for shows. VIP tickets get you a multitude of horrifying goodies including an exclusive vinyl EP of re-recorded Goblin tracks courtesy of the most awesome Death Waltz Recording Company. Dig in below for additional info on shows, and a full itinerary of tour dates.
Initial Press Release:
“We are very excited to be working with one of the most influential Italian bands of all time Goblin. This October they head out on their first ever tour of the USA and are releasing a tour EP featuring four brand new versions of the Goblin classics Suspiria , Tenebrae, Profondo Rosso & Roller exclusively through Death Waltz. These re-recorded versions by the recently reunited band not only manage to capture the spirit of the original recordings but instill them with an urgency and intensity that is truly representative of their recent live performances. The EP will only be available on the US tour and will be pressed on blood red 180g vinyl featuring exclusively comissioned artwork by legendary poster artist Graham Humpreys (Evil Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street).
