Electric Six – The Academy, Dublin

Electric Six

Label: Too Many Robots
Format: CD/DD

Release date: October 25, 2010

Electric Six have a 7th studio album coming out on Too Many Robots, October 25, 2010 followed by a UK tour in December. The record is called Zodiac and it features Electric Six at the height of their musical confidence…

Zodiac begins in a most hauntingly poppy fashion with “After Hours” and although Zodiac differs from many of its predecessors in the Electric Six discography it’s probably their strongest and most commercial release since ‘fire’. It’s largely lower-fi, not necessarily in sound, but in essence. Tracks like “I Am A Song!” and “Table and Chairs” see the band embracing its love of The Poppy Family, Neil Diamond and yes, The Doors. But Electric Six will always hold the center with equilibrium force. Songs like “Jam It in the Hole”, “Clusterfuck!” and “American Cheese” shows you that Electric Six is never done being the band that you want them to be. They are Electric Six and they must electrify you.
