Bride of The Devil
DIGITAL (2018) · Listen & Buy on Bandcamp
Electric Six has often used The Devil as subject matter for its songs because of that last bit, the part about corruption and adulteration. Thatâs what Electric Six has been trying to do with its music now for quite some time!!!! We want to corrupt young womenâ¦.just like The Devil!!! Thereâs 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!!!! Thatâ¦.is why we started this bandâ¦.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, humanityâs various falls from grace, the nine circles of purgatory and of course, the internet itself. Bride of the Devil opens with the thunderous opener âThe Openerâ, 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 (âDaddyâs Boyâ) and the horrors of being forced into a pool of toxic waste by a rabid Doberman trained to kill (â(It Gets) (A Little) Jumpyâ).
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. Itâs all there in black and white. The Carrie Underwood-esque lyrics alongside a backdrop of vodka and caviar and backchannels and Seychllian bank accounts. Thatâs 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. Jaundiced. Tired.
So there you have it. Electric Six is back with its fourteenth record and itâs 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 itâs 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.
