(September 22nd, 2016) – Just in time for the fall season (and most especially, Halloween!), Detroit dance rock outfit Electric Six have announced their new album Fresh Blood For Tired Vampyres, set for release on October 7th via Metropolis Records! Consistently releasing mind-bending albums annually since 2005, they’ve spiced things up with a heavier dose of atmosphere and textures on their twelfth studio album.
The group has dabbled in numerous genres in the past such as dance, punk, hip-hop and R&B, but Fresh Blood for Tired Vampyres is said to demonstrate the ability to combine all these genres into one cohesive album and we couldn’t be more hyped!
To further add to the hype train, the band also announced a new tour, which kicks off tomorrow (September 23rd) at The Loft in Lansing, MI and runs through mid-October.
