Scalping Change Name to Scaler, Share New Song ‘Loam’

    Bristol quartet Scalping have changed their name to Scalping, sharing the new single ‘LOAM’ along with the announcement. Daniel Avery produced the track, which you can check out below.

    In a statement about the name change, Scaler said: “We have changed our band name. All future releases, performances & projects will come under the new name SCALER. As this band has grown and the opportunity to travel further afield has presented itself, we’ve become aware of the wider context surrounding our previous name and how offensive it can be to Indigenous cultures. We want to apologise for this, it was never our intent to offend. Everything else remains the same. New music tomorrow… This is just the start.”

    Of the new single, the band added: “When the opportunity to work with Daniel Avery came up we obviously jumped at it; we’ve been fans of his for a long time and working on these tracks with him really helped us be more decisive, to trust our gut and not overcomplicate things.”
