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 headline Rockstar Mayhem’s Sumerian Stage last summer, their single “Polygon Of Eyes” was selected as the iTunes “Single of the Week.”
Praised for their “proper rock-and-roll riffage” & “unapologetic classic rock” by CLUTCH vocalist Neil Fallon and 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 SiriusXM satellite 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 at Rocklahoma. Scorpion Child can be purchased from the Nuclear Blast USA Webshop.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ll keep my editorial mumblings brief since the band is still super duper new to my aural senses. I do really like what I am hearing and the same can be said about the band Crobot. These are two groups that remind you with every single note that Hard Rock is still alive. Hopefully some of you more investigative readers out there already know about these two bands so you can assist in the broadcasting about what good they bring to the table. Does this tour run interest you? If so please chime in down in the comments section below.
