News | Peggy Sue to release covers album Songs of Scorpio Rising

Peggy Sue have made the surprising but welcome announcement they are releasing a special new album on Monday! Songs of Scorpio Rising is a collection of covers inspired by the 1963 Kenneth Anger film Scorpio Rising. The idea came about after the band were last year invited to play a live soundtrack to the film at a showing in Hackney, as Anger had originally compiled a groundbreaking rock ‘n’ roll soundtrack for the film.

The band then decided to record the songs they had played that night, and the results will be heard when a limited edition run of 1000 CDs goes on sale on Monday. A digital version of the album will be released on July 23.

To celebrate that, on Sunday July 22 the band will be playing two very special shows at a surviving World War II bunker in Dalston, which seats only 50 people at a time. Tickets for those shows will go on sale on Monday June 18 at
