Texan classic rockers SCORPION CHILD are set to release forthcoming album Acid Roulette, on June 10, 2016 via Nuclear Blast Entertainment.

Guitarist Chris comments, 
“I think this is the band Aryn and I have always envisioned. Having AJ on the keys was a real big thing on this record that we were really pushing for. With him...it’s almost like having another guitar player on stage, but he fills out these other layers of sound that another guitar necessarily can't do. With that though he can also emulate guitar parts" 

The band recently released new track "Moon Tension" which can be heard here: 

Acid Roulette was recorded at The Bubble in Austin, TX with Chris "Frenchie" Smith (The Answer, And You Will Know Us By The Trail Of Dead...) who produced and arranged the band’s self-titled, first full-length. Acid Roulette was mixed by Dave Schiffman (The Mars Volta, Dead Meadow, Jane's Addiction, Rage Against The Machine). The album's artwork, pictured above, was a collaboration by Aryn Jonathan Black, photographer Max Taylor and graphic designer Rob Kimura.

"Acid Roulette chronicles the life trials of a traveling man who was imprisoned for a murderous crime," comments Aryn. "He was forced into confessing by his wife and her wealthy lover so that they could live out their romance without him in the picture. Once sentenced to a life's term, he goes through extreme emotions dealing with the only woman he'd ever loved taking everything he'd known as "real" away from him. He has to create and redefine his own reality accompanied by its roller coaster of emotional reflection. He experiences many different psychological changes throughout the years and escapes by means of drugs and his writings. These songs become his diary of a madman. The focus is mainly on the seasons in a year, for each song represents a month. The songs exist to drive home the full power of human emotion as many albums do, however, Acid Roulette wires us into those extremes."
