Austin rockers SCORPION CHILD have entered the studio to begin recording their sophomore album, due later in the year via Nuclear Blast Entertainment. The band have once again joined forces with Chris “Frenchie” Smith (THE ANSWER, AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TAIL OF DEAD…), who also produced and arranged SCORPION CHILD‘s self-titled, full-length debut.

SCORPION CHILD vocalist Aryn Jonathan Black states: “The band is now locked in the studio committing everything to album No. 2. Everyone is dressed to the nines and it’s business time!”

SCORPION CHILD last year added a new face to its lineup: drummer Jon “Charn” Rice, formerly of JOB FOR A COWBOY.

SCORPION CHILD‘s self-titled debut album sold around 900 copies in the United States in its first week of release. The CD landed at position No. 26 on the Top New Artist Albums (Heatseekers) chart, which lists the best-selling albums by new and developing artists, defined as those who have never appeared in the Top 100 of The Billboard 200.

“Scorpion Child” was released on June 25, 2013 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment, the new U.S. partnership between Nuclear Blast owner Markus Staiger and former Roadrunner Records A&R chief Monte Conner.
