San Franciscan Sabbath-worshipping quartet, Orchid, have just announced a one-off London show at Camden Dingwalls on November 3rd, 2013. Orchid will be supporting their recently-released second album, 'The Mouths Of Madness'.

Their new album has had UK critics salivating...

"Thought Sabbath had already written all the best riffs? Think again – these guys have some monsters". Metal Hammer

"Orchid will have floored you with their immense power and California cool". Kerrang!

"Orchid, from their riffs to wailer Theo Mindell's shamanic shrieks, are a vibrant, charismatic proposition". Terrorizer

Mouth watering? Let's add the main support band into the mix! We are equally stoked to announce that label-mates, Austin based five-piece, Scorpion Child will be making their UK debut at this show. The band released their colossal hard rock self-titled debut only last month but already have the UK media and US touring partners buzzing.

"Some mighty impressive shredding, a dramatic pause and then... Blam! Evoking memories of early 80's Rainbow and Iron Maiden, this single by the Austin-based four-piece leaves you do breathless that you hardly have to time to wonder what a "Polygon Of Eyes" actually is". CLASSIC ROCK UK

"I can confirm that Scorpion Child are the real deal. Thunderous drums, huge riffs, quality songs and in Aryn Jonathan Black, a singer and frontman that brings to mind Robert Plant AND Paul Rodgers... Scorpion Child are destined for greatness!" - Ben Ward, ORANGE GOBLIN

"Aryn Jonathan Black has one of the best voices I've ever heard. His range is outrageous. And thankfully, it is accompanied by proper rock and roll riffage. Scorpion Child is unapologetic classic rock... just as the ancient ones intended". Neil Fallon, CLUTCH

"It's rare when a new group emerges that’s so perfectly polished, and so outrageously talented that they already seem like the finished article and you have to double check they haven't actually been around for 20 years!" METAL HAMMER

Juices well and truly running down your leg? With support from young American-Swedish-French quartet Blues Pills, we've got ourselves a bit of a killer show on our hands.

Orchid singer Theo Mindell commented: "We're really excited to be returning to the UK with such great bands supporting us. We're so blown away by the love and support everyone has shown us and can't wait to play these shows. Looking forward to seeing you all on the road."

Scorpion Child frontman Aryn Jonathan Black added: "We are enthralled to spread our live show to the UK and what could be better than sharing the experience with Orchid and Bluies Pills!"
