Scott just supported Led Zeppelin legend Robert Plant’s Saving Grace on big summer shows.
While touring and performing again, Scott said, “It felt like a long time coming for these new songs to be heard where I wanted them to be heard, especially after I finished New Skin in August of l. ‘last year.
“I have always envisioned the electronic beats and rhythmic pulses bouncing off the walls of an old 14th century chapel – something that seems incongruous, but has always intrigued me.
