SCORPION CHILD Releases Video For “King’s Highway”Friday, 14th February 2014
Austin rockers SCORPION CHILD have released the video for “King’s Highway,” a song from their 2013 self-titled album. Opening with the sound of cicadas, the clip was directed by award-winning stop-motion animator Jess Cope (STEVEN WILSON, STORM CORROSION, DEVIN TOWNSEND) of Owlhouse Studios, whose talents have been seen in the short film “The Astronomer’s Sun”, the British children’s television series “Postman Pat”, and Tim Burton’s feature film “Frankenweenie”.
SCORPION CHLD frontman Aryn Jonathan Black says the following about the video: “Jess Cope’s work for our new ‘Kings Highway’ video is masterful! We are enamored by her artistic eye and ability to create a fantasy trip with an ethereal visual that’s captivating and timeless.”
SCORPION CHILD recently added a new face to its lineup: drummer Jon “Charn” Rice, formerly of JOB FOR A COWBOY.
Before heading out to the U.K. for nine shows starting March 16, SCORPION CHILD will have a showcase at this year’s SXSW festival in Austin, Texas.
