Scorpion Child confirm 2nd album Acid Roulette

Scorpion Child have confirmed their second album, Acid Roulette, will be released on June 10.

It comes after the recent release of opening track She Sings, I Kill.

Frontman Aryn Jonathan Black says the follow-up to 2013’s self-titled debut tells the story of a “travelling man imprisoned for a murderous crime.”

He adds: “He was forced into confessing by his wife and her wealthy lover. Sentenced to a life’s term, he goes through extreme emotions, dealing with the only woman he’d ever loved taking everything away from him.

“He experiences many different psychological changes throughout the years and escapes by means of drugs and his writings. These songs become his diary of a madman.”

Scorpion Child are currently touring Europe with Monster Magnet, including a show at London’s Forum alongside Orange Goblin.
