Scorpion Child have inked a new deal with Nuclear Blast Entertainment.
Here is what the band’s new label had to say about the signing, as presented in a press release: “Every few years, a band comes along who borrows just enough from the revered past to bring a new infusion of vitality to the musical present. Scorpion Child’s sound invokes a time when guitar-driven rock ruled radio’s airwaves, when being hypnotized by a frontman and his bandmates in a concert arena was one of life’s ultimate main events.
“A five-piece from Austin, Texas, Scorpion Child have spent the last few years perfecting both their songwriting and stage show. Guitarists Chris Cowart and David Finner deliver their finessed twin guitar attack with experience older than their years; bassist Shaun Avants and drummer Shawn Alvear are steadfast sentinels of their driving rhythm section; and lead singer Aryn Jonathan Black fronts the psychedelic rock cavalry with a passion & voice reminiscent of the early eras of Robert Plant and Ronnie James Dio.”
OK, I’ve had enough; sometimes press releases can oversell.
The band’s self-titled debut full-length drops this May, kids. I will say this: These guys rock it like a magic fucking boomerang of pure fuck! And if you know what that means, we’re probably just on the same mental plane, which is dope.
See for yourself. Bravo to Nuclear Blast for signing something that isn’t fucking, well, expected.
I bet these dudes are pretty awesome live. The following video seems to indicate as much, but then again…they could just stand there. But I doubt it.
