It’s almost time for Scorpion Child to set out with Monster Truck for Lords Of The Riff 2014 – and they have a new video to get us in the mood.
The clip for Kings Highway was directed by award-winning stop-motion animator Jess Cope, whose talents have been seen in The Astronomer’s Sun, Postman Pat and Tim Burton’s Frankenweenie. Not only that, but it features a special intro by none other than Thin Lizzy icon, Scott Gorham!
“Jess Cope’s work for our new Kings Highway video is masterful!,” says Scorps frontman Aryn Jonathan Black. “We are enamoured by her artistic eye and ability to create a fantasy trip with an ethereal visual that’s captivating and timeless.”
Check out the video below:
