NEW FUCKING ALBUM COMING YOUR WAY!!!
We are thrilled to announce that we will be recording our next full length album with Adam Pike at his Portland based Toadhouse Recording Studios. Adam has recorded many incredible bands (including RED FANG, RABBITS, Black Elk, Norska and Black Pussy), as well as touring with Red Fang as their front of house engineer, and we are very excited to undertake our next musical chapter with his support. We fell in love with Portland this spring during our US tour and are elated for our return to tap into the city's thriving music scene. Cheers to Adam, Portland and to a killer new album!

Check out a great in-depth interview we did with It's Psychedelic Baby magazine:
"It’s one of those rare metal albums that not only manages to keep you completely off center and guessing what to expect next, but where all the punches land where they should, effectively sweeping the listener off their feet into Chron Goblin’s own land of delightful carnage and charming havoc. When the darkness does part and the band takes a breath from time to time, they exhale these twisted psychedelic wheezes of air, providing a much needed break from the utter destruction all around them."
