Evil Scarecrow

Tuesday, 26th February 2013

Evil Scarecrow Set Time: 8:50pm to 9:50pm

EVIL SCARECROW ARE - the finest parody metal band from Nottingham to have written a song about a robot… probably.

It is in the live arena that the band have really proved their worth, they have gigged relentlessly around the UK for a number of years captivating and sometimes rather surprising audiences from venues as small as the local pub, as legendary as Nottingham Rock City, as mammoth as the main stage at Bloodstock Festival and as exclusive as a boat sailing down the Thames on the way to the Metal Hammer Golden Gods Awards. Everywhere they play they win new fans, their passion and enthusiasm ensures they always connect with their audience who in turn spread the word far and wide.

The unwavering support of their fans has seen Evil Scarecrow win the Bloodstock Unsigned Competition and feature in Terrorizer’s best unsigned band readers’ poll, in October 2013 the fans stepped up once again by ensuring the band reached the goal of their first Pledge Music Campaign less than 24 hours after the project went live.

This support is what keeps the band pushing forwards as they step into the studio with legendary producer Russ Russell to record their highly anticipated 3rd album, the first recorded with the current line up. As ever the album will include influences from across the metal genre melded together with the inimitable Evil Scarecrow humour and just a smattering of some rather more imitable dance moves. The band show no signs of slowing down their gigging schedule with shows across the UK scheduled throughout the coming year, including a return to the Main Stage of Bloodstock 2014. When they’re invading a stage near you, it's not to be missed!

"If you havent seen Evil Scarecrow (9) yet then it feels unfair to ruin the surprise. An affable blend of Pythonesque absurdity, artfully drawn from an evident love of metal, they have the crowd in the palm of their collective claw from Sixty-Six minutes past Six." Metal Hammer

 “Praise be, then, for Evil Scarecrow…Novelty bands don't last long on stage, everyone's tired of the joke by the third song in. Evil Scarecrow break the mould by being damned competent musicians as well as piss funny.” The Rock City Review

DAMAGED STOCK SAY - "Evil Scarecrow are instrumental in putting this festival together and year on year have given the audience a real treat with their home town full length set, this year will not be an exception, they are currently working on their 3rd studio album and hope to showcase some of the new tracks at Damaged Stock. The band work hard all day to ensure the festival runs smoothly but still say this is one of their favourite live shows of the year."
