“Skulldiggin”

Black Joe Lewis on the album:

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 desocializing.”

Electric Slave will be released on August 27th on Vagrant Records. Most of the album was produced by GRAMMY award winner Stuart Sikes 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 at Elmwood Studios in Dallas.
