Electric Six returns at its regularly scheduled time of year … the end of the year. As part of the tour, the band come to O2 Shepherd’s Bush Empire London on 30 November with support from The Lounge Kittens, a three-piece girl cabaret act who describe themselves as ‘rock sluts in disguise’.
The year is ending, you’ve come up short on all your goals, none of your expectations have been met, and you’ve been left holding the bag. Let’s face It … you’ve never needed a good time like you need it now. Enter Detroit’s six-headed white knight dressed in military-grade spandex at just the right time to save you from the crushing weight of your own life. Electric Six returns tanned, rested and ready after a year off of touring and they are coming at you with all the songs you love from their remarkable sixteen-year career.
The band released their fourteenth studio album Bride Of The Devil late last year in which they examine the concepts of evil and corruption, humanity’s various falls from grace, the nine circles of purgatory and of course, the internet itself. They explain, “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.”
Your life just got better.
