Scum of the Earth Post New Demo Samples Online

SCUM OF THE EARTH, the band featuring former ROB ZOMBIE guitarist Riggs, has posted four new demo samples without vocals on its official MySpace page.

SCUM OF THE EARTH recently tapped renowned U.K. concept artist Paul Garner to create the cover art for the band's upcoming second release, tentatively entitled "Sleaze Freak". Paul's probably best known for his work on everything from tattoo and t-shirt design to movie/music magazine illustration to giant murals and sideshow banners, and co-designing, producing and directing the Gawkagogo Bizarre Cabaret and Theatre shows throughout London and the U.K. He's also worked with Richard O' Brien ("Rocky Horror Picture Show") and Clive Barker. Paul's style peers behind the curtain of a sinister sideshow underworld where cartoon geeks, zombie kids, and unspeakable things from the slab mingle menacingly with the ones that the Scooby Doo gang let get away.

When Riggs was asked about his decision to work with Paul, he said "He's an amazing artist, I thought his artwork looked real sleazy, trashy and basically seemed like a visual embodyment of what this album's all about... sleaze, filth, depraivety, and the dark perversion of the world. The red light district in Amsterdam, has this vibe... in my opinion, it's like the 'Disneyland of the Universe', and 'Sleaze Freak' will be our attempt to bring that vibe to the fans, through the music and the art. There might be some other artists as well..."
