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’ on Metropolis Records.

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.freh_blood_electric_six

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.

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 fu%£in’, the way they do it in the city.
