SCUM OF THE EARTH Putting Finishing Touches On New Album

SCUM OF THE EARTH, the band featuring former ROB ZOMBIE guitarist Riggs and ex-WHITE ZOMBIE drummer Ivan DePrume, is currently wrapping up recording sessions for its second album, entitled "Sleaze Freak", to be released by Eclipse Records later this year. "We decided to write two more songs for the album, so after wrapping up preliminary tracking at Belt of Orion studios in Los Angeles, we took a little break to write some more material," said Riggs. "I also needed to take care of a few things back home so we postponed recording for sessions for two months and now we have resumed. It's great to be back to working on getting 'Sleaze Freak' wrapped up and into the hands of the fans, we've got some great new shit to record."

The band is currently at Studio 2100 in Springfield, MO to finish tracking and mixing the new album, and expect to be finished by June 1. When asked about a street date, Riggs replied, "Eclipse hasn't set one yet. Everybody's been asking, but it makes sense what they're doing, not setting the street date until we hand over the finished masters. Plus it's allowing us to be a lot more creative, taking our time and not having a deadline looming over our heads... up until now."

"Sleaze Freak" tentative track listing (not in order):

01. Bombshell From Hell
02. Devilscum
03. Love Pig
04. Hate X 13
05. Macabro Expectaculo
06. I Am Monster
07. Sleaze Freak
08. Corpsegrinder
09. Deathstomp

11. Scum-O-Rama
12. Devil Made Me Do It Again
13. 13 Freaks

SCUM OF THE EARTH recently tapped renowned U.K. concept artist Paul Garner to create the cover art for "Sleaze Freak". Paul is 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.

SCUM OF THE EARTH's debut album, "Blah…Blah…Blah…Love Songs for the New Millennium", was released in 2005 via Eclipse Records. The CD features Riggs alongside an all-star cast of friends, including John Dolmayan (drums; SYSTEM OF A DOWN), and John Tempesta (drums; HELMET, WHITE ZOMBIE, ROB ZOMBIE, TESTAMENT, EXODUS) and his brother Mike Tempesta (guitar; ex-POWERMAN 5000). The Tempestas' appearance on the album marks the first time the brothers have played together on record.
