Having kicked off their latest European tour with four UK shows earlier this month before heading off to the continent, Electric Six return this
week for another 13 UK/RoI dates as they continue to promote their brand new album, ‘Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres’.
ELECTRIC SIX – ‘Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres’
new album out now + UK/RoI 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 nd 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. And come see Electric Six on their ‘Just Another Dickblocka on the I.R.T.’ UK/RoI tour :
