Vocalist Aryn Jonathan Black and guitarist Christopher Cowart of Texan classic rockers Scorpion Child discusses in their fourth video trailer for their new album Acid Roulette, out June 10, 2016 via Nuclear Blast.
They talk about how the band writes new material as well as how the title track was created. Watch it below.
“Acid Roulette chronicles the life trials of a traveling man who was imprisoned for a murderous crime.”
“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.”
