Posted by BV on 06/02/14

The hard-rocking retro outfit Scorpion Child has dismissed two members of the band and will continue as a four-piece, with former Job For A Cowboy drummer Jon ‘Charn’ Rice joining the line-up. He takes over from Shawn Alvear, while rhythm guitarist Tom Frank won’t be replaced.

In an interview with bassist Shaun Avants explains:

“It should be noted that their contributions were not without their merits. As with any team or group, decisions must be made that are vital to the overall attitude, creativity, quality and lifespan of a shared and common goal. Any decision we make will be for the betterment and advancement of this band.

We have decided to move forward as a four-piece, at least for now, as we say goodbye to our friends Tom and Shawn Alvear. We wish them the very best in any and all of their future endeavours."

Avants says of new man Rice:

“He exemplifies ambition, hard work and the general personality that gives this band the potential to function as a tighter unit. His handful of performances with Nonpoint and the Shiprocked cruise earlier this year only solidified our faith in his abilities and filled us with an overwhelming excitement for the coming possibilities.

Thank you to all of our fans for weathering the seas of change. We’ll see you all very soon. Bigger. Better. Faster. Stronger.”
