Goblin to tour U.S. prior to Housecore set in Austin! [Updated with dates!]Books/Art/Culture,Movies/TV,News Samuel Zimmerman
In anticipation of their two sets — one live-scoring Argento classic SUSPIRIA — at Phil Anselmo’s Housecore Horror Film Festival this October, the full line-up of Goblin will launch a mini U.S. tour.
Joining keyboardists Claudio Simonetti and Maurizio Guarini and guitarist Massimo Morante will be Bruno Previtali on bass and Titta Tani on drums, as Goblin makes their way through the U.S. playing iconic and splendid scores to SUSPIRIA, TENEBRE, DAWN OF THE DEAD, DEEP RED and more. The road ends at the aforementioned Housecore Festival, where the influential prog-rockers will play two nights.
Guarini says, “This is an important event. I’m perfectly aware that everything started thanks to you. There are fans all over US that have been waiting for us for decades, and now that the news has spread and people start realizing that we are coming to the Housecore Horror Film Festival.”
Additionally, the great folk at Death Waltz Records will be releasing a tour-exclusive EP featuring four brand new versions of the Goblin classics SUSPIRIA, TENEBRAE, PROFONDO ROSSO & ROLLER. “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 Humphreys (Evil Dead, A Nightmare On Elm Street).”
