Electric Six Pull .nuclear. Single

Rockers ELECTRIC SIX have became the latest band to bow to the sensitivities of war - they've pulled the release of their next single GAY BAR and debut album FIRE "due to the current situation in Iraq".

Gay Bar, which had been due for release in early May (03), features a reference to nuclear war.

The Detroit, America quintet's label XL had prepared alternative edits, but the band decided they didn't work. They are now re-recording the track with an alternative verse.

A statement from the DANGER! HIGH VOLTAGE hitmakers says, "Having rejected an edit of the track done by the label and, although understanding the sensitivity required in the current climate, are rightly only willing to make a compromise on their terms.

"As a result, all copies of the unapproved edit have now been withdrawn and the band are recording a new version (with a replacement verse) this week in Detroit.

"The new version will become both the new radio and video edit but unfortunately means that both release dates will have to change."

The band are currently in the midst of an American tour.
