Electric Century will finally be releasing some new tracks.
The group took to Twitter last night to reveal the good news to their fans who have been awaiting new music since last year.
The record, which will be the first solo release from former My Chemical Romance bassist Mikey Way and his partners in the act Dave Debiak of Sleep Station and Justin Siegel formerly of Stars in Stereo, is set to be released on Record Store Day (April 18).
The EP will feature four songs; three of which are previously unreleased tracks. Check out the full details of the upcoming record directly from the Record Store Day website as well as the band.
“Electric Century EP
Format: 10″ Colored Vinyl
Label: Panic State Records
Release type: RSD Exclusive Release
Electric Century is a fever dream. A Britpop happening made to bounce along heavy beats and driving bass. It’s your subconscious offering relief, a telltale anthem of joy. But the dream has been infected, like always, by the voices in your head: I can’t remember life without the pain.
Mikey Way (My Chemical Romance) conceived Electric Century in a daydream. The band is derived from a title, scribbled in his middle-school science notebook. Its idea has been weathered through love and bitter loss, and cultivated within the world’s strangest embrace — sudden celebrity.
In Electric Century, Mikey joins forces with longtime friend Dave Debiak (Sleep Station, New London Fire), whose songwriting captures demons, addiction and despair, then holds them up plainly against the happy facade that we show to the world.
