SCUM OF THE EARTH ANNOUNCE HEADLINING TOUR; BAND FEATURES RIGGS, EX-ROB ZOMBIE GUITARIST

TOUR LAUNCHES DAY OF CD RELEASE OCTOBER 26 IN LOS ANGELES

FIRST CD EVER TO FEATURE UMIX IT INTERACTIVE TECHNOLOGY

Lenses video for “Get Your Dead On”
Directed by Rob Prior (Buffy the Vampire Slayer, Shadow Walker)

New York, NY – Scum of the Earth, the monstrous new breakout band from ex-Rob Zombie guitarist Riggs, announced today they will embark on a nationwide tour supporting their Eclipse Records debut, Blah…Blah…Blah…Love Songs for the New Millennium. The tour will commence October 26, the very day the albums drops, canvas most of the U.S. and venture into Canada. Riggs recorded Blah… with an all-star cast of friends including Zombie drummer John Tempesta (White Zombie, Rob Zombie) and his brother Mike Tempesta (guitar, Powerman 5000)—marking the first time the brothers have played together on record, SOAD drummer John Dolmayan, as well as Clay Others (bass) and more. On tour, Riggs will be flanked by Adema guitarist Ransom, PM5K drummer Adrian Ost and Others.

“We’re trotting out the scummier side of the Scum family,” says Riggs. “Lock up your daughters and small animals.” Riggs’ caveat is both cheeky and certifiable; Scum of the Earth’s live show is serial-killer tense and ferociously executed. Riggs and his mates are seasoned rock vets that will scratch your rock itch raw. Expect to gorge on visual and sonic delights.

The much-anticipated Blah…is a bloodsucking feast of Riggs’ trademark slaug hterhouse guitars, go-go beats and drive-in movie aesthetics, produced by Michael Beinhorn (Korn, Red Hot Chili Peppers) and Irv Gotti. It will be the first CD to feature UMixIt™ interactive technology, an enhanced feature that allows listeners—should they desire a little more grind in tracks like “Pornstar Champion”—to play producer/Dr. Frankenstein and isolate, violate and remix on their computer, up to 16 audio tracks by emphasizing, cutting back or removing any instrument or vocal.

In addition, Scum of the Earth has lensed a video for the single “Get Your Dead On” with director Rob Prior (Buffy the Vampire Slayer), based on his upcoming film Shadow Walker, currently in pre-production. The unique horror film’s main character will be the basis for the clip which, in an unprecedented move, will introduce the mythology of the Shadow Walker villain before its appearance in a film, comic book, or video game (each is scheduled for release next year). Prior conceived the Shadow Walker, a violent creature from New Zealand folklore that moves only within darkness, with groundbreaking comic book writer Paul Jenkins ("Origin: The True Story of Wolverine," "Spider-Man: Return of the Goblin," "The Incredible Hulk," "Darkness: Resurrection"). Prior, a renowned master of photorealistic comic book art (he crafted the creatures for the Buffy the Vampire Slayer and Angel), designed the Shadowalker.

Jenkins and Prior decided that music video would be the ideal medium to introduce what they hope will be the breakout monster franchise of 2005. Scum of the Earth, a breakout monster band, is a natural partner.
