Scorpio Rising / Bio

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 Electronic/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 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, Annual GoGirls Music Fest, Art Outside, Pecan Street Festival, Eeyores birthday party, Annual Austin Corn Lovers Fiesta, and Pocket Fishrmen Fishfy. 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. In July 2008, the band released Feels Good, followed by the EP, The last one Standing, released in May 2010 after Madame Scorpio battled Breast Cancer. Their song “Always Come Back” was featured in the 2009 movie Vitreous Floaters. In 2011, Scorpio Rising released the single “Summer Jam,” to be included on an upcoming EP.
