The new single from UK metalheads Orange Goblin’s hugely anticipated new album »Science, Not Fiction« is out today. The track, titled »The Fire At The Centre Of The Earth Is Mine«, follows »(Not) Rocket Science« and »Cemetary Rats« as the third single to be taken from the album and is accompanied by a new lyric video by Matt Vickerstaff which you can watch below.

Speaking about the track, singer and lyricist Ben Ward said, “We are very proud to present »The Fire At The Centre Of The Earth Is Mine«. We consider this a very ‘typical’ Orange Goblin song…uptempo, melodic and instantly catchy, with all the ingredients of classic Heavy Metal! it’s the perfect way to kickstart the new Orange Goblin album! Lyrically, it’s about how we can’t change our past, but as the rest of the world is seemingly falling apart, we all have a chance to change our future. We are very excited about adding this banger to the live set at future shows!”

»Science, Not Fiction« was recorded at Woodworm Studios UK in late 2023, with production and mixing duties carried out by Grammy winning producer Mike Exeter (most notable for his work with Black Sabbath, Judas Priest and Tony Iommi) and mastering conducted by the esteemed Peter Hewitt-Dutton at The Bakery in LA.

From the explosive death-boogie of opener »The Fire At The Centre Of The Earth Is Mine« onwards, the band’s tenth album crackles with energy and belligerence. Following the departure of long serving bassist Martyn Millard in 2020, Orange Goblin welcomed close friend Harry Armstrong (formerly Hangnail) into the fray, making »Science, Not Fiction« his first studio outing with the band. With the new line-up fizzing with chemistry, the hard rocking likes of »(Not) Rocket Science«, »The Fury Of A Patient Man« and »The Justice Knife« breathe new life into some classic Orange Goblin tropes. Meanwhile, twisted prog-doom detours like »False Hope Diet« and »Cemetary Rats« take the Londoners into epic new territory, with everything from skull-shattering punk ‘n’ roll to transcendent space rock hurled into the swirling brew.

“It is a continuation of what we’ve been doing, and that’s because when we write, it’s a big mixing bowl of all of our influences and favourite artists, and we try and create the perfect band that we always wanted to hear,” Ben states. “This album, it’s just more accomplished and mature, I guess. None of us are spring chickens anymore and we’ve got ten albums under our belts now. I feel like we’re more professional in the recording studio, I feel like we’re better musicians and writers, and now with me looking after myself, I feel like my performance is better as well. It’s all moving in the right direction.”

For the last 30 years, Orange Goblin, London-based hard rock lifers, have tirelessly flown the flag for balls-out heavy metal and maximum rock ‘n’ roll. Driven by passion, persistence and heartfelt love for metal’s dark magic, Orange Goblin have always been a vital force and a risk-free bet. But while some may be content to trade on past glories, Orange Goblin view heavy metal as a lifelong pursuit. In 2024, they open a new chapter in their heroic saga, marking it with the release of their tenth studio album: »Science, Not Fiction«.
