“Going from one riff-filled masterpiece to the next, Electric Citizen go well beyond anything that they accomplished with 2014’s Sateen. The band is coming into their own, and they know it.” — Metal Injection

“Electric Citizen’s greasy pop hooks come buried under layers of swaggering stoner licks, hot rock leads, and vocalist Laura Dolan’s sinewy yowl, keeping things good and dirty even as they let a little sparkle peek out.” — Noisey
“With songs this good, they deserve to blow up.” — Consequence of Sound

Helltown, the third album by Electric Citizen is, in many ways, a homecoming. While the title may seem fittingly metal (if not exceedingly so), it actually has real relevance. Helltown (all one word), while also multidimensional, is named after the Cincinnati, OH neighborhood in which the band lives, practices, and where the album was written, recorded and mixed. Now known more prosaically as Northside, Helltown earned its name in the 1800s due to its reputation for rowdy taverns frequented by the neighborhood of factory workers and immigrants.
Inasmuch as Helltown is an ode to the band’s home and its buried past, it also represents a return to the grittier sound of their 2014 debut, Sateen. Furthermore, it marks the return of original bassist Nick Vogelpohl, who rejoins vocalist Laura Dolan, guitarist Ross Dolan and drummer Nate Wagner. It’s a fun, tough, dirty rock n’ roll album.
Helltown is available on LP, CD and download, released September 28th, 2018 via RidingEasy Records. Orders are available HERE.
