ELECTRIC SIX announce new album and tour

Eternal life can seem like an eternity. Ask any vampire. The continuous
march of sun ups, sun downs, transformations of form, seductions, cape fittings and
exsanguinations eventually it all just becomes an endless, tired routine. It all seems so
exciting and so sexy to those of us who operate knowing we have limited time. But ask any vampire about the downside of eternal life, and you won’t be surprised to hear tales of binge eating garlic bread just to feel the hurt or of the occasional dangling of a wooden
stake just over the centre of the rib cage.

Electric Six knows all about eternal life. Electric Six has been around forever and it can
never die. That’s lovely but it’s also very tiring. You are witnessing Electric Six come
at you with its twelfth studio album in as many years, and you are seeing some very tired
vampires, Jack. But Electric Six still smells blood and that blood is you. And it is you who will give us new life.

Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres is the new release by Electric Six on Metropolis Records. One listen and you will immediately understand that the sexiest vampires are urban vampires. Where E6 has dabbled in dance, hip-hop and R&B here and there in the past, Fresh Blood is the whole enchilada. It is thirteen songs designed to make the listener
interested in smooth and nasty fuckin’, the way they do it in the city.

From the Grandmaster Flash-inspired Number Of The Beast to the super smooth tour of the NYC outer boroughs Mood Is Improving, the listener finds himself immediately deposited into an urban drop zone with hustlas and dickblockas coming from behind
every corner.

The radio-ready pop hits I’ll Be In Touch and Dance With Dark Forces are the tracks
that get the listener off the street and into the club. And it would not be an Electric Six
album without an epic closer, that being the beautiful and haunting Spacewalkin’, the
ballad that assures the listener that the vampire has now fed and will live a thousand more years, albeit in outer space.

Electric Six changes more frequently than change itself, but ultimately this just means
they’re never gonna put out the same album twice. Fresh Blood for Tired Vampires is poppy and smooth, nasty and raw and oh so life affirming, especially if you are undead.

Get your copy when it comes out on Metropolis Records on 7th October. And come see
Electric Six on their Just Another Dickblocka on the I.R.T. tour, which visits 17 UK/RoI
towns in November and December.
