SCUM OF THE EARTH, the band founded by former ROB ZOMBIE guitarist Riggs, have announced Jägermeister's "biggest, sickest, meanest tour."
After landing themselves a Top 10 spot on the FMQB metal chart, and one of Top 5 most played music videos on MTV2's "Headbanger's Ball", Riggs and his new project are heading back out on the road at the end of this month with supporting acts TILL WE DIE and DEAD BY WEDNESDAY.
When asked about the tour, Riggs said the following in a recent interview, "Jägermeister and Lucky 13 have both been great in supporting this tour... they gave us tons of cool custom Jäger-SCUM OF THE EARTH swag to give away and even hooked me up with a Jäger tap machine for my tour bus. The Devil Girl contest (sponsored by Lucky 13 clothing) is gonna be lots of fun as well, probably end up being like a XXX strip show, but with blood..."
Lucky 13 clothing will be holding a SCUM OF THE EARTH Devil Girl contest at all tour dates, bringing those who think they've got what it takes to be the next Lucky 13 Devil Girl, and let the crowd decide who the hottest Devil Girl is in each city. The winner gets a Lucky 13 gift bag containing some custom Lucky 13 clothing. Free Jägermeister swag giveaway items will also be available at all shows (to those 21+).
