Described by Aryn Jonathan Black as “a sonic landscape of a 24-hour period” and joining the elite ranks of rock’s present day flag bearers such as Graveyard, The Sword, Wolfmother, and Rival Sons, SCORPION CHILD‘s self-titled debut album was produced and arranged by Chris “Frenchie” Smith (The Answer, Jet, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead) using analog technology.
Scorpion Child debuted at #26 on the Billboard Heatseekers chart & at #99 on the Hard Music Album chart the week following its June 2013 release. Shortly after the announcement that the band would headlineRockstar Mayhem’s Sumerian Stage last summer, their single “Polygon Of Eyes” was selected as theiTunes “Single of the Week.”
Praised for their “proper rock-and-roll riffage” & “unapologetic classic rock” by CLUTCH vocalist Neil Fallonand commended by radio & television personality Eddie Trunk for their “old school spirit, kick-ass hard rock, killer riffs and vocals,” SCORPION CHILD’s music has been played on Eddie Trunk’s live show on SiriusXMsatellite radio and on Nights with Alice Cooper.
SCORPION CHILD has toured with CLUTCH and KADAVAR, showcased multiple years at the SXSW Music Festival, and performed on the Shiprocked Cruise in January. This will be their second appearance atRocklahoma.
