Orange Goblin announce an updated and improved deluxe version of their sixth full-length album »Healing Through Fire«

Orange Goblin will release an updated and improved deluxe version of their sixth full-length album »Healing Through Fire« (Sanctuary Records, 2007), available on August 20th, 2021 via Dissonance Productions.

A statement from the band as follows: “We are unleashing an updated and improved deluxe version of »Healing Through Fire« – available as a 2 disc set featuring 27 tracks and a wealth of bonus material!

The package will be released by Dissonance Productions, the Heavy Metal arm of Cherry Red Records. The »Healing Through Fire« 2CD deluxe version is available to pre-order now here:

Boasting re-worked artwork, and housed in a deluxe double digipack, the new edition of »Healing Through Fire« is considered by the band to be the definitive version of what was their first release after leaving Rise Above Records.

Disc 1 features the original album, remastered, and adds four BBC Radio One Rock Show Session tracks, as well as three demos from 2006, including a raucous cover of The Damned’s »New Rose«.
Disc 2 contains a full 11 track live set recorded at the Mean Fiddler in London in 2006, showcasing the Orange Goblin live experience in all its high volume high octane glory.”

Frontman Ben Ward explains the thoughts behind the release: “People have been asking us to reissue »Healing Through Fire« for a few years now so when the time came we wanted to make sure it was done well. We are really happy to present this version of the album with all new artwork and extensive liner notes from all of the band.

The audio on the studio album and the extras has all been remastered and sounds better than ever so we feel that Cherry Red / Dissonance Productions and the team there have done it justice. This is a very special album to us as a band as it marked a period of transition for us after the first five albums had been released by Rise Above Records – this was our first venture with a new label.

It’s an album that stands alone in our catalogue as being the only one loosely based around a certain ‘concept’ and the themes, artwork and imagery of that have been brilliantly brought up to date with this stunning reissue. There are also some rare gems included from our BBC Radio One Rock Show session recorded at Maida Vale studios in London as well as some demos and a cover we recorded in Boston prior to our US tour with Scissorfight in 2006. Crack open a cold beer and PLAY IT LOUD!”
