“Frontwoman Laura Dolan is one of the best in the business, and she sounds fantastic on this recording [“Evil”], wailing over heavy organs and a chugging riff. Electric Citizen have the most breakout potential of all the young bands on this list, and with songs this good, they deserve to blow up.”
– Consequence of Sound (20 Most Anticipated Metal Albums of 2016)
Los Angeles, Feb. 10, 2016 – Electric Citizen, the Cincinnati-based four-piece whose 2014 debut album, Sateen, Decibel Magazine described as “rock’n’roll grooves” that are “tremendous and insanely catchy”, release their anticipated follow-up, Higher Time, on May 13 via RidingEasy Records.
The band recently gave fans an early preview of the ten-track album with the song “Evil,” heard here: http://bit.ly/20Jhkez. Consequence of Sound included the new album in their list of 2016’s Most Anticipated Metal Albums, saying “Electric Citizen have the most breakout potential of all the young bands on this list, and with songs this good, they deserve to blow up.”
“We chose producer Brian Olive (The Greenhornes, Dan Auerbach, Dr. John) because he’s an excellent musician with a great ear for rock ‘n’ roll, and a trusted friend,” notes singer Laura Dolan. The quartet, which also includes guitar player Ross Dolan, bass player Randy Proctor and drummer Nate Wagner, joined Olive at The Diamonds Studio in Cincinnati. Mixing was done at Nashville’s famed Easy Eye Studios and handled by Black Keys’ engineer Collin Dupuis.
