Relapse Records is excited to announce Goblin Rebirth‘s new self-titled album, which will see a release on CD/LP/Digital on June 30th, in North America; June 29th, in the UK/World; and June 26th, in DE/Benelux/Finland. The group (which features members of Italian film score figureheads Goblin — yup, the guys responsible for Dario Argento’s Suspiria and George A. Romero’s Dawn of the Dead) has revealed an album trailer (in the player above) to give fans a taste of what to expect.
Inspired by the legendary Goblin, the 1970’s-synth/film score icons responsible for such soundtracks as Suspiria, Zombi, and Tenebre, Goblin Rebirth came together after a temporary reformation of the original group in 2009. The new incarnation of the group contains the famed rhythm section of the original Goblin (drummer Agostino Marangolo and bassist Fabio Pignatelli, who both played on the classic soundtracks to Zombi/Dawn of the Dead, Suspria, Profondo Rosso/Deep Red, and more), with the addition of Aidan Zammit and Danilo Cherni on keyboards and Giacomo Anselmi on guitar.
The band formed in 2010, and started with a live repertoire of Goblin hits and some unusual songs from more obscure Goblin soundtracks. The band members soon began creating new material and decided to look to the future, creating songs that grew out of an organic process, through a combination of individual compositions and jam sessions.
The music from this new album is to be performed at festivals in Italy starting in May 2015, and there are plans for live performances in other countries in the following months.
