Art and love are more important than ever, because they are now the conduits that preserve our life forces. If you don't create art and you don't love nobody...well then, you will be forgotten, rather quickly. No one wants to be forgotten rather quickly. No one more so...than Electric Six. Electric Six understands all this stuff as it prepares to unveil its eleventh studio album B*tch, Don't Let Me Die!, which will be released on October 6 on Metropolis Records. From the pounding, driving opener, Drone Strikes, through the 1970s guitar anthem Two Dollar Two, B*tch, Don't Let Me Die! reveals that Electric Six knows that it is going to die, but will not go out quietly. From there, the album moves through the pop goodness of Kids Are Evil and A Variation of Elaine, the prog-rock showmanship of Slow Motion Man, and even a tribute to Elvis Presley in his more rotund years with Dime Dime Penny Dime. Big Red Arthur is the anchor track of the album, as it emits a rock-opera bombast that is reminiscent of Radiohead sodomizing David Bowie in the center of his mind. To summarize, mortality is everywhere, and this fall, thanks to their new record B*tch, Don't Let Me Die!, Electric Six will be everywhere too.
