Mid-Atlantic whiskey mongers Wasted Theory are ready to release their third full-length album, ‘Warlords of the New Electric’, upon the world on October 26th, through Argonauta Records. Their second release with Argonauta, after the ‘2017 edition’ CD re-release of 2016’s Defenders of the Riff, this new Wasted Theory album displays a disturbingly sober vision of slammed down, heavy rock invaders.

With writing and recording completed this Spring (April/May 2018), the eight songs were engineered by Joseph Boldizar (Ruby The Hatchet, Ecstatic Vision, The Age of Truth), with assistance from Kyle Graham, and additional mixing by Chris Pollock – at Retro City Studios in Philadelphia, PA. Mastered by David Downham at Gradwell House Studios. Album cover artwork and design for Warlords Of The New Electric was created by Bill Kole.

Argonauta Records‘ label owner Gero had this to say:

“After teaming-up for the 2017 edition of their monumental album ‘Defenders of the Riff’, Argonauta Records is thrilled to renew the collaboration with WASTED THEORY, whose new album is already anticipated as one of the hottest releases of the coming Fall,”

The eight song, full hammer strike is available on two physical formats, CD and solid White ‘Fan Edition’ Vinyl LP, with Digital Download and Streaming through most major outlets.

Some words from Wasted Theory on ‘Warlords of the New Electric’:  

“When we set out to write ‘Warlords of the New Electric’ we wanted to take the energy and enthusiasm of ‘Defenders of the Riff” and develop those vibes even further. In our opinion, this is the perfect companion to the last album. We didn’t want to put out the stereotypical third album where we start getting all experimental and bizarre. So, we did the exact opposite – we took our gritty rock n’ roll origins and pushed them even heavier into the material.

The riffs are harder, the fast stuff is faster and the doom stuff is doomier. This is the perfect album for those hot, sticky summer nights hanging out at your buddy’s BBQ bonfire and having way too much to drink. This album is very much a Wasted Theory album.”


Wasted Theory debuted their new video for ‘Warlords Of The New Electric”s first single, “Rawhide Hellride”, its premiere was featured October 4th on The Obelisk. “…they push their sound forward on the eight-track/36-minute long-player, which is inarguably their tightest and most professional-sounding collection to-date.” ~ JJ Kozcan – The Obelisk
