Many years ago in a desolate Lincolnshire town a band of dubiously termed musicians of Nordic heraldry with a fondness for sticky back plastic decided to go their separate ways, but as a phoenix rises from the ashes a new and perhaps even more glorious band emerged from the dying embers of Thor’s Children (widely regarded as the greatest Blue Peter Metal band of all time) and thus Evil Scarecrow triumphantly exploded in to existence.

In the following years the slowly band relocated to Nottingham evolving through several line up changes to become the monstrous and stunning apparition that you see today. The current incarnation of the band is version 5.0 featuring Dr. Rabid Hell, Brother Dimitri Pain, Kraven Morrdeth, Princess Luxury and Ringmaster Monty Blitzfist.

The band have two full albums “Crowcifiction” and “Sixty Six Minutes Past Six” with the “Hell Dog” EP being released between the two. Two official videos have been released, the ever popular “Robototron” and fan favourite “Blacken the Everything”.

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 and Hammerfest 2015. When they’re invading a stage near you, it’s not to be missed!
