Texan Classic Rockers SCORPION CHILD are far from slowing down. Hardly of the hook off their European Tour alongside labelmates ORCHID and BLUES PILLS and just about to take off for another tour leg with SPIRAL ARMS , the quintet has now been confirmed to do an extended UK tour in early 2014. Presented by Teamrock brands Metal Hammer and Classic Rock, SCORPION CHILD will be featured co-headlining with Canadien Rockers MONSTER TRUCK, on the “Lords Of The Riff” Tour in March 2014. The tour is designed to showcase new artists that both brands are passionate about, championing their talents to their respective and very diverse audiences, at an affordable price. A support band is still to be announced. Metal Hammer editor-in-chief, Alexander Milas comments: "It isn't often that Classic Rock agrees with what we put on the office stereo, so you can imagine our surprise when not one, but two new Metal Hammer favourites met with their approval, and a pint or two later a tour was born. MONSTER TRUCK and SCORPION CHILD are two phenomenal live bands, and we can't wait to see them on these shores. Riff on!" Texas has spawned a mighty sting in the form of Austin-based energy thieves, SCORPION CHILD. The five-piece will be returning to British Isles after their huge debut UK performance in London earlier this month. The band released their colossal hard rock self-titled debut back in June via Nuclear Blast. The record contains so much venom, the UK media and the band’s touring partners are positively writhing. Classic Rock described lead track ‘Polygon of Eyes’ as “Some mighty impressive shredding, a dramatic pause and then... Blam! Evoking memories of early 80's Rainbow and Iron Maiden, this single by the Austin-based five-piece leaves you so breathless that you hardly have to time to wonder what a ‘Polygon Of Eyes’ actually is.” Equally impressed are US touring buddies CLUTCH. CLUTCH frontman Neil Fallon raves, “Aryn Jonathan Black has one of the best voices I've ever heard. His range is outrageous. And thankfully, it is accompanied by proper rock and roll riffage. SCORPION CHILD is unapologetic classic rock... just as the ancient ones intended.” MONSTER TRUCK frontman/bassist Jon Harvey exclaims, "We can't wait to get back over to the UK with SCORPION CHILD! A certified rock n roll roadshow that will melt your face off! Prepare your booties for a lot of shakin'!" Aryn Jonathan Black, vocalist for SCORPION CHILD, enthuses, "We are super excited to rejoin our European family, along with Canadian brethren MONSTER TRUCK for the Team Rock sponsored March tour!"
