ELECTRIC EEL SHOCK, the Japanese metal, classic rock, and punk trio, whose music and stage shows are a wild, outrageous, and high energy filled celebration of the guitar, loud music, and a catchy chorus, are back.
The band - Aki Morimoto (guitar/vocals ), Kazuto Maekawa (bass ), and Tomoharu ‘Gian’ Ito (drums ), who sometimes only wears a sock on stage to cover his manhood! - are marking 21 years together with a world tour that takes in Strange Brew at the Róisín Dubh on Thursday June 25 at 9pm.
Over those years EES have won critical acclaim. Mastodon's Brent Hinds said, “EES are nothing short of awesome”. Kerrang! described their music as "mixing dark fuzzy stoner rock riffs with classic rock sensibilities and addictive song-writing hooks"; Metro said the band "put on a show that can be equally enjoyed by metal’s fanatics and its detractors. This is more than just a rock show – it’s a complete entertainment package.”
EES have also released numerous albums, such as Beat Me, Transworld Ultra Rock, and Live Around The World vol.1, and have earned comparisons to Queens Of The Stoneage, AC/DC, and Black Sabbath.
Support is from The Hitchers. Tickets are available at www.roisindubh.net, the Ticket Desk at OMG Zhivago, Shop Street, and The Róisín Dubh.
