This event is 18 and over
The Devil has always been there. He is the great outsider, the original
iconoclast. He is a conniving little shit and never seems to tire of giving
humanity a wedgie or a wet willie just for a laugh. The Devil is capable of
taking many forms. He can exist as one being or spread out amongst many. He
can present himself as an ordinary man or as a horrific cloven-hoofed beast
depending on his mood. Above all else, The Devil lives to corrupt, to
adulterate, to defile.
Electric Six has often used The Devil as subject matter for its songs because of
that last bit, the part about corruption and adulteration. That’s what Electric Six
has been trying to do with its music now for quite some time!!!! We want to
corrupt young women....just like The Devil!!! There’s nothing more rewarding
than the seduction of a young innocent maiden, forcing her to wear demonic
dresses, levitating her towards the great fiery skull and watching her eyes turn
black as she gives into evil and becomes the bride of The Devil!!!! That....is
why we started this band....to help women realize their potential as sexy evil
maidens with eyes reflecting the utter darkness of a corrupted soul.
With its fourteenth studio album Bride of the Devil, Electric Six examines the
concepts of evil and corruption, humanity’s various falls from grace, the nine
circles of purgatory and of course, the internet itself. Bride of the Devil opens
with the thunderous opener “The Opener”, a bombastic celebration of the arena
rock Electric Six never got to play. The next two numbers are textbook ear
worm guitar pop numbers that deal with debilitating income inequality and
nepotism (“Daddy’s Boy”) and the horrors of being forced into a pool of toxic
waste by an a rabid Doberman trained to kill (“(It Gets) (A Little) Jumpy”).
And then we get to the title track, a radio anthem, where it all becomes clear
that The Devil is a metaphor for Russia and the United States is the young girl
who is seduced, corrupted and wedded into a Satanic covenant with the beast.
It’s all there in black and white. The Carrie Underwood-esque lyrics alongside
a backdrop of vodka and caviar and backchannels and Seychllian bank
accounts. That’s how they did it. They went after our country performers and
got the rubes to feel good about being Russian assets. And still, it is the feel-
good anthem of the summer.
Finally, the haunting album closer “Worm In the Wood” is Electric Six at its
most serious, most tender and emotional. Haunting. Effervescent. Corrupt.
So there you have it. Electric Six is back with its fourteenth record and it’s
poppy and feel-good, as well as heavy, both sonically and lyrically. Our sound
will corrupt you and enslave you as the beautiful demonic bride you know you
truly are. Fraulein, take this severed hand with it’s creepy long nails from the
beginning of time. To do so is truly thine destiny.
Come see Electric Six on the “Russia, If You’re Listening” tour this fall and
into 2019. Bride of the Devil will be released on Metropolis Records
on October 5, 2018 world-wide.
