Commenting about the new album s title and thematic elements, Joe himself said: Electric Slave is what people are today with their faces buried in their iPhones and the only way to hold a conversation is through text. The next step is to plug it in to your damned head. Nothing is up front anymore and people are de socializing.
The band have also just unveiled an upcoming North American tour supporting Electric Slave. The band will hit the road beginning in September, playing a number of shows along the east coast including a show at New York's Terminal 5 on September 26 with Okkervil River and Pickwick. Pickwick will support on a number of dates.
