After removal of some objectionable content, MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball" has agreed to air SCUM OF THE EARTH's video for "Get Your Dead On". The episode will air Saturday, January 22 at 10:00 p.m. and will repeat Monday, January 24 at 4:00 a.m.
The "Get Your Dead On" clip was directed by Rob Prior ("Buffy the Vampire Slayer") and was based on his upcoming film "Shadow Walker", currently in pre-production. The unique horror film's main character is the basis for the video, 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.
"Get Your Dead On" comes off SCUM OF THE EARTH's debut album, "Blah…Blah…Blah…Love Songs for the New Millennium", available now via Eclipse Records. Former ROB ZOMBIE guitarist Riggs recorded "Blah…" with an all-star cast of friends including 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 — SYSTEM OF A DOWN drummer John Dolmayan, as well as Clay Others (bass) and more. On tour, Riggs will be flanked by ADEMA guitarist Ransom, POWERMAN 5000 drummer Adrian Ost and others.
