Discovering a new band is like having a new best friend. They do things that make you fist-pump the air and roar “Yyyeaaaahhhhhh!!!’; they think you’re awesome and are always happy to see you; and every time you hang out with them, you feel better about the direction this god-forsaken world is headed in. And here’s the other thing: you’re ridiculously good-looking, but how is the rest of the world gonna know that?
Luckily for you, SCORPION CHILD is on this summer’s Rockstar Mayhem tour right now waiting to be discovered. By you. Plus, they’ve launched a photo contest on Instagram.com (#scorpionchildren) for all their new friends to show themselves reppin’ The Child!
For example: Did you douse yourself in sunscreen and endure 119-degree heat to watch the guys’ headlining set on the Sumerian Stage like Andrew Banks of San Diego (pictured above with the band) did? Did you organize a 4th of July BBQ with all your rocker buddies and insist on wearing your Scorpion Child shirt to the E.R. when you got food poisoning from the undercooked beer chicken? Did you lose the better half of your favorite pair of shoes at your local record store in a furious tug-of-war with an older hippie over the last Scorpion Child CD? Well, the guys in the band wanna know!
Upload your look-alike photos, brand-spankin’ new scorpion-themed tattoos, your ‘70s-inspired moustache/beard, and mosh pit pics on Instagram using the #scorpionchildren hashtag.
Photo finalists will be selected by members of Scorpion Child. The First Place Winner will be given the opportunity to pick from one of the following three upcoming Mayhem Fest dates to attend, receive 2 tickets and 2 Meet & Greet passes, and have bragging rights for life about how awesome your new friends are!
Contest date #1: July 27th - First Midwest Bank Amphitheater - Tinley Park, IL
Contest date #2: July 30th - Lakewood Amphitheater – Atlanta, GA
Contest date #3: July 31st - 1-800-Ask-Gary Amphitheater – Tampa, FL
Contest ends on Thursday, July 25th, so start uploading your masterful expressions of rock ‘n’ roll fandom.
Scorpion Child will support San Francisco classic heavy rockers ORCHID when they return to the old continent this November.
