“The Devil Made Me Do It 3”, the new single from SCUM OF THE EARTH — the band led by former ROB ZOMBIE guitarist Riggs — will receive its premiere on Saturday, May 19 during the New Jersey Devils/New York Rangers Eastern Conference Finals game at the Prudential Center in Newark, New Jersey.
The song is the first single from SCUM OF THE EARTH‘s forthcoming third album, titled “The Devil Made Me Do It”, due out in the fall of 2012.
Being a passionate hockey fan, Mark Nawara, president of Goomba Music, thought he would send the song to the New Jersey Devils and they loved it.
“When I heard the track, I immediately thought of the Devils and I figured the song could fit in during their upcoming home games in the quest for the Stanley Cup,” said Nawara. “On an impulse, I contacted the team and they loved the song and are going to use it in some way.”
“I’m excited that the New Jersey Devils decided to use the song,” stated Riggs. “The track definitely had an anthem feel when I wrote it.”
Goomba Music will release “The Devil Made Me Do It 3” on iTunes and other digital music outlets on Tuesday, May 22.
SCUM OF THE EARTH‘s latest CD, “Sleaze Freak”, was released on October 23, 2007. The explicit (PA) version of the album was made available at most retailers containing an added DVD video. The DVD consists of footage filmed while recording and mixing the album documenting the recording and mixing process and many hijinks of the band around town, in the studio, and on the road.
SCUM OF THE EARTH‘s first studio album of all-new material since the critically-acclaimed debut “Blah…Blah…Blah…Love Songs For The New Millennium” (2004), “Sleaze Freak” contained 13 brand new songs described by Riggs as “heavy-as-hell grinding, stripper-rock.” “It’s a much more intense collection of material than ‘Blah…Blah…Blah…’” said Riggs. “We did everything we wanted to do this time around, which allowed us to really embody the whole red-light-district sleazy vibe into the material.”
