Electric Citizen debut release set

British-inspired American psychedelic band Electric Citizen will release their debut album Sateen in July, they've confirmed.

The four-piece formed a year ago and quickly drew acclaim for early single Burning In Hell – hear it below.

The nine-track record is described as comparable to Blood Ceremony, Wolf People and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats, while being inspired by Pentagram, Sir Lord Baltimore and Amon Duul.

RidingEasy Records say: “From the cloudy and mystical swirl of Hawk Nightingale to the shades of folk metal on Shallow Water, Electric Citizen pitch scholarly interpretations of the old guard in new and electrifying ways and not always from the vaults of forgotten masters.”

Sateen is set for launch on July 1.

Not only is one-time online news editor Martin an established rock journalist and drummer, but he’s also penned several books on music history, including SAHB Story: The Tale of the Sensational Alex Harvey Band (opens in new tab), a band he once managed, and the best-selling Apollo Memories (opens in new tab) about the history of the legendary and infamous Glasgow Apollo. Martin has written for Classic Rock and Prog and at one time had written more articles for Louder than anyone else (we think he's second now). He’s appeared on TV and when not delving intro all things music, can be found travelling along the UK’s vast canal network.
