Rockin' MILLENNIUM DISCO out of Austin Texas.
Scorpio Rising is an electro/dance/rock band from Austin, Texas, whose
recordings and intense live performances have made them one of Austin’s
premiere entertainment commodities.
Hailed as one of Austin’s best Goth/Industrial bands and DJ bands
by the Austin Chronicle Music Poll, Scorpio Rising’s fans have
likened their sound to The Rolling Stones meet Scissor Sisters,
with vocals reminiscent of Cyndi Lauper, Shirley Manson, and Madonna,
polished with a touch of Motown.
Scorpio Rising started in the mid 1990’s as a side project of
Austin Funk outfit Retarted Elf’s vocalist/dancer
Madame Scorpio and guitarist Wonderbred. The two had compiled a
huge catalogue of new material and wanted to take it to the stage.
Scorpio Rising has built a diverse and loyal fan base throughout
Texas, playing consistently in Austin, San Antonio, Houston,
Belton, Dallas, Bryan/College Station
and Corpus Christi. Festival appearances include the Central Texas
State Fair, SXSW showcase and Eeyores birthday party.
Scorpio Rising’s debut recording, Scorpio Tales was written, recorded and
produced by Wonderbred and Madame Scorpio. Their sophomore effort,
Vain Bastard was a full band effort and included songs “Get It Up” and
“Eerie,” which have both enjoyed publishing success and can be
heard on The Discovery Network, a compilation CD release from
the WB network, clothing ads, and video game song distribution.
The band’s latest release, Feels Good was released in
July 2008 to rave reviews by fans and critics alike.
Scorpio Rising’s current line-up includes
Madame Scorpio on vocals,
Wonderbred on bass and guitar
D.J. Bixler on drums.
This incarnation has been performing, touring and recording together for the past three years.
