Monster Truck, Scorpion Child for Classic Rock Lords Of The Riff tour
Classic Rock is proud to present the Lords Of The Riff UK tour, featuring a double-whammy of rising star acts Monster Truck and Scorpion Child, in association with our sister title Metal Hammer.
Highly rated by both magazines, the bands will deliver nine shows in March next year, taking turns at closing the show.
Canadians Monster Truck have been in existence for four years. The four-piece released their debut album Furiosity earlier this year and won a Juno Award in their home country. Frontman Jon Harvey says: “We can’t wait to get back over to the UK with Scorpion Child. It’s going to be a certified rock’n'roll roadshow that will melt your face off…”
Texan outfit Scorpion Child launched also launched their first album this year. The self-titled opus led to their nomination in the Best New Band category at the Classic Rock Awards. Vocalist Aryn Jonathan Black enthuses: “We are super excited to rejoin our European family, along with Canadian brethren Monster Truck.”
Metal Hammer editor Alexander Milas adds: “These are two phenomenal live bands, and we can’t wait to see them on these shores. Riff on!”
