The artist pushing trap metal to new extremes
SCARLXRD is the moniker of Wolverhampton-born rapper Marius Lucas Antonio Listhrop, whose music generally blends elements of heavy metal and trap.
Pronounced as “Scarlord”, he likes to replace the letter “o” with “x” not only in his stage name but also in song titles. Influenced heavily by Japanese culture, SCARLXRD is often seen donning a surgical mask, inspired by the manga Tokyo Ghoul.
At first he began uploading humorous videos to YouTube in 2012 as Mazzi Maz and then launched his music career in 2014 by forming the nu-metal group Myth City and releasing a self-titled EP the following year.
In 2016, he became SCARLXRD and embarked on a solo path with the debut track Girlfriend. He released a handful of albums over the next two years but didn’t break into the music charts until DXXM, his major label debut with Island Records, arrived in spring 2018.
SCARLXRD followed that up with the album Infinity, which led to a nomination at the 2019 Kerrang! Awards for Best British Breakthrough artist.
In early February 2021, SCARLXRD released his 12th album DXXM II and announced a huge tour stopping in four UK cities in November 2021.
SCARLXRD is playing four shows in the UK from 16 – 20 November 2021.
SCARLXRD will be visiting the following UK cities in 2021:
Tickets for SCARLXRD's UK tour dates go on sale from 10:00 on Friday 12 February 2021.
