Electric Citizen Signs To EasyRider Records, Announces “Sateen” Release

EasyRider Records this week announced the signing of the heavy psychedelic outfit Electric Citizen.

Following on from limited edition vinyl/cassette-only releases on The Crossing and Breathe Plastic Records, the winners of this year’s Best Rock Band honor at the 2014 Cincinnati Entertainment Awards will release a debut album, entitled “Sateen” on July 1st, 2014. EasyRider Records comments:

“Taking their name from a song by the legendary Notting Hill Gate set the Edgar Broughton Band, Electric Citizen is the brainchild of guitarist Ross Dolan, enigmatic vocalist Laura Dolan, Nick Vogelpohl (bass) and Nate Wagner (drums).

“Despite only forming last March the band has had a busy year turning heads and ears onto their dark and esoteric brand of haunting ’60s West Coast folk and quintessentially British sounding rock.

“Recorded and produced by fellow Ohioan and local legend Brian Olive (Greenhornes, Soledad Brothers) at The Diamonds, Electric Citizen follow in the footsteps of other, similarly 1970s obsessed anti-modernists Blood Ceremony, Wolf People, Graveyard and Uncle Acid and the Deadbeats. Drawing on influences and eras synonymous with the heaviest of heavy psychedelic rock and archaic ill vibes, and music by bands such as Shocking Blue, Black Sabbath, Pentagram, Black Widow and Amon Düül II.”

The band takes to the road over the next few months ahead of the album’s official release in July. Dates are available below, you can also hear the song “Burning In Hell” below, courtesy of

Wednesday, March 19 – Double Door (Chicago) w. Mad Alchemy
Thursday, March 20 – Pyramid Scheme (Grand Rapids) w. Mad Alchemy
