“Electric Hydra will release their new self-titled album on November 27 via Majestic Mountain Records and Tee Pee Records. If you’re aware of either of those record labels, then you already know what to expect – riffs that will melt your speakers.”Metal Injection
Following the announcement last month of Electric Hydra’s conscription to Majestic Mountain Records, we’re thrilled to announce that the band will also be backed stateside by legendary US independent rock label, Tee Pee Records.
With the release of their debut single/video for ‘It Comes Alive’ premièring now over at Metal Injection (check it out here), Electric Hydra, the band’s self-titled debut album will be officially released on November 27th, 2020.
“The song ‘It Comes Alive’ was one of the first songs written for the album,” explains bassist, Ellinor Andersson. “After a lot of coffee and some serious talk regarding guitar gear, Dennis started to play a riff and we continued to mess around with it while Sanne drafted lyrics. The song is about how your mind takes you to the darkest parts of your imagination.”
Formed on the windswept West Coast of Sweden, amid the dark forests of Småland, Electric Hydra – formed by Sanne Karlsson, Ellinor Andersson, Jonathan Möller and Jonny Petterson – first met on an impromptu night in late 2017. In doing so they discovered a connection; a newfound friendship through a shared of Kyuss, Fu Manchu, Entombed and Black Sabbath, and decided to book a rehearsal room the very next morning.
Known for delivering high energy shows, the band has played live at Sweden Rock Festival and Malmöfestivalen; toured Europe, and shared stages with Lucifer, Monolord, Truckfighters, and Greenleaf, among many others.
With Dennis Åhman being brought in to replace Petterson on drums, work on their debut began in early 2020 and continued throughout the COVID-19 pandemic at Shimmer Studios, Studio BO, and Welfare Studios. Further reinforced with new recruits in Peter Söderberg and At the Gates/Bombs of Hades’ Jonas Stålhammar (following the departure of Jonathan Möller) the quintet is keen to prove exactly why they are considered one of the most exciting new acts on the Swedish rock scene.
Electric Hydra’s self-titled debut album is released November 27th on Majestic Mountain Records/Tee Pee Records.
