ELECTRIC SIX lives in a world filled with double entendres, subversive scenarios, and a soundtrack that relies on equal parts rhythm and melody. On October 20, 2009, that world takes a murderous direction with their sixth album KILL on Metropolis Records.

The band will be kicking off their “I’m Trying to Cut a F*cking Spot, Tony” Tour in support of KILL, starting Oct. 15th in Rochester, NY and circling around the US straight through the end of November.

Metropolis recording artists ELECTRIC SIX are gearing up for the release of their fifth album FLASHY on October 21, 2008. Produced by guitarist Zach Shipps and recorded at Hamtramck Sound Machine in Michigan, Flashy is a diverse journey in their absurdist, surrealist, and oftimes double entendre-driven minds. “Our modus operandi for this record was to use more horns,” vocalist Dick Valentine says with a sideways glance, “And also to write songs on synthesizers and then turn them into guitar-based songs. But the main thing was to get all these songs out of our heads and onto paper. They were in our heads. Now they are on paper.”

In advance of the album’s release, Electric Six will also be playing a handful of shows this week, supported by New York-based Tragedy, a heavy metal tribute to The Bee Gees, including boat cruises in New York City and Boston. In the Fall to kick off album’s release, the band will also embark on an extensive national tour with Local H, kicking off in their homestate of Michigan.
