Danger! Danger! Detroit’s finest sharp-suited, disco-punk-funk rockers Electric Six are back with a vengeance!
Dick Valentine and his eccentrically named chums are currently holed up in the studio recording their Rushmore Recordings/Warner Brother Records debut and the follow-up to 2003’s Top 10 album ‘Fire’. Eager to give fans a taster of the new material ahead of their upcoming, Electric Six are set to make the new song ‘Vibrator’ available as a FREE download from October 18th from www.electric6.com
Further more, Electric Six are set to soundtrack office Christmas parties everywhere when their awe-inspiring version of Queen’s gargantuan ‘Radio Ga Ga’ is released as a single on December 13th.
Electric Six first hit the collective consciousness of the UK when only Girls Aloud’s ‘Sound Of The Underground’ could prevent their classic debut single ‘Danger! High Voltage’ from blasting straight to the top of the charts. And was that Jack White we heard on it?
The band soon had another hit to their credit when the feverishly addictive ‘Gay Bar’ hit the Top 5, aided by a suitably big gay video. And how many hit singles have you heard with the lyrics “Girl, I’ve got something to put in you/at the gay bar, gay bar”? Exactly.
A full-scale nationwide tour will follow later this year.
