Orange Goblin, the British stoner metal ensemble, is set to release their tenth studio album titled “Science, Not Fiction” on July 19th, courtesy of Peaceville Records. This album serves as the successor to their 2018 offering, “The Wolf Bites Back.” The recording process took place at Woodworm Studios in Oxfordshire, UK, under the guidance of producer Mike Exeter, renowned for his work with Black Sabbath and Judas Priest.

Ahead of the album’s release, the band unveiled a single, “(Not) Rocket Science,” accompanied by a lyric video (Watch Below) crafted by Matthew Vickerstaff. Vocalist Ben Ward shared his thoughts on the track, stating:

“It’s basically saying that life can be pretty simple and straightforward if you just stop wasting your time and make each day count. Be prepared to work hard, don’t expect any hand outs and basically enjoy yourself along the way. When Chris came up with the music he said it needed something that could be delivered in a Bon Scott / Lemmy style and I think it came out really well.”

The album marks a new chapter for the band with the inclusion of bassist Harry Armstong, who joined Orange Goblin in 2021. Describing the essence of the album, Ward explained:

“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. 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.”
