Scorpion Child have streamed their track Moon Tension from second album Acid Roulette.

The follow-up to their 2013 self-titled debut arrives on June 10 via Nuclear Blast, and tells the story of a travelling man imprisoned for a murder he didn’t commit.

Frontman Aryn Jonathan Black recently said: “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 psychological changes throughout the years, and escapes by means of drugs and his writings. These songs become his diary of a madman.”

Scorpion Child previously revealed their tracks My Woman In Black and She Sings, I Kill. They play the Download festival at Donington (opens in new tab) next month. Acid Roulette is available for pre-order now.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
