Black Joe Lewis Announce New Album 'Electric Slave' To Be Released August 27th 2013

Black Joe Lewis are excited to announce details surrounding their brand new full-length LP, Electric Slave, to be released on August 27 on Vagrant Records. Most of the album was produced by GRAMMY award winner Stuart Sikes (White Stripes, Cat Power, Modest Mouse) and recorded at Church House Studios in Austin, TX. Three of the new tracks ("Skulldiggin," "Dar Es Salaam," "My Blood Ain't Runnin' Right") were recorded and produced by John Congleton (Explosions in the Sky, St. Vincent, Okkervil River) at Elmwood Studios in Dallas.
 
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 are also excited to unveil 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. For complete itinerary, please see below.
