Labtones Artist of the Month November: Electric Litany

The Labtones Artist of the Month of November is Electric Litany (UK)! Electric Litany sings about anarchy and social revolution. The London based band stayed in abandoned public buildings for three years, to write and rehearse songs for their debut album. Finally, in the summer of 2009 they arrived in an abandoned church in North London. The acoustics were perfect for the sound they wanted. Therefore, in this church the 13 tracks for the album 'How to be a Child & Win the War' (2010) were recorded in three days. The album was mixed in Athens and mastering took place in the Abbey Road Studios. 

The band consists of Alexandros Miaris (vocals, guitar, piano, synths, cello), Richard Simic (drums, percussion), Benjamin Prince (synths) and Alex Deligiannidis (bass). Electric Litany has a long résumé of live performances in Greece, England. They also performed as support act for style mates Interpol and iLiKETRAiNS, amongst others. 

In November 2011, they will go for a short tour through the Netherlands and Belgium. They will perform at the Geleen Calling festival, for example ( Electric Litany is considered to be a big sensation by experts in the Netherlands. Fans of Radiohead, Interpol and Sigur Rós have to see this band at work for sure! You can listen to some songs on their Labtones profile:
