Long awaited landing of Goblin in North America
Almost 40 years removed from their debut, cult legends Goblin will launch their first ever North American tour this October. The tour will start October 1st in Atlanta and will culminate with a two night run of performances in Austin, TX at the Housecore Horror Film Festival on Oct 25 and 27.
The Italian Soundtrack Kings will perform all of their classic cuts, including scores from Deep Red, Suspiria, Tenebrae, and other songs that are milestones among prog rock followers, including songs from Roller, Il fantastico Viaggio del Bagarozzo Mark, and most recent Back to the Goblin. Other famous scores never performed live anywhere will be included on this tour.
First signals of a reunion started 8 years ago when Massimo Morante and Maurizio Guarini, together with other members of Goblin, released a new album, Back to the Goblin, after a long absence. The band felt it was time to expose the music to new generations of fans and invigorate their loyal following. In 2009, Goblin started touring the world, hitting the major European cities including Rome, Paris, London, Berlin and many others (in 2010 Claudio Simonetti re-joined the band). The band found the tour to be a great success, and the fan base kept growing, bringing back the old enthusiastic crowds of the seventies and converting new fans of all ages along the way. To follow this up, in 2011/2012 the band ventured to Japan and Australia and met the same enthusiasm. This led to an increased desire to come to North America as a full band for the first time ever.
The tour will include a small amount of VIP ticketing, allowing fans to meet the band, get up close, see part of the soundcheck, and walk away with commemorative poster.
The line up for this tour will include original members since 1975 Claudio Simonetti and Maurizio Guarini (keyboards) and Massimo Morante (guitar). The band is rounded out by drummer Titta Tani and bassist Bruno Previtali that joined in 2010.
Support on the tour (up to October 20) will come from the Northern California based Secret Chiefs 3, formed by Mr. Bungle founding member Trey Spruance. Secret Chiefs 3 have developed quite a cult following of their own over the last 15 years with their blend of other worldly psychedelic rhythms and melodies.
Morricone Youth is a New York City septet formed in 1999 dedicated to performing and recording old film and television soundtrack and library production music. In addition to a repertoire of over 100 re-workings of old soundtracks, many of which recorded for various EPs released by Country Club Records, the band composes original music much in the same vein for the "imaginary film" as well as for live settings to accompany silent films, midnight movies, animations and shorts. Morricone Youth recorded its debut full length album of original music entitled "Silenzio Violento" with legendary Brooklyn producer/engineer Martin Bisi released by Country Club Records in 2005. The band's music has regularly been used for television and films, most recently in the documentary "Second Skin" directed by Juan Carlos Pineiro-Escoriaza about MMORPGs (Massively Multiplayer Online Role Playing Games).
Guitarist/founder Devon E. Levins, formerly of San Diego's avant-garde jazz punk band Creedle, has been a dedicated soundtrack record collector since the 80's and has hosted a weekly internet radio show since 2007 on East Village Radio under the same Morricone Youth name curating primarily obscure music written for the moving image and interviewing soundtrack composers and filmmakers.
