Drawing us a picture of what’s to come is Electric Century, with the latest release Till We’re Gone, taken from their self-titled album to be released on 26th February 2021. Continuing their 80s throwback spree on the first single to be released from their forthcoming second album, with a remnant of I Ran by A Flock Of Seagulls, Till We’re Gone is enthusiastically entertaining and is revved with enough charge to climb a mountain.
Listen to Till We’re Gone Below:
As the brainchild of David Debiak and Mikey Way, the duo are throwing another My Chemical Romance band member in the mix, thanks to both Till We’re Gone and the sequel to first album For The Night To Control being produced by lead guitarist and backing vocalist Ray Toro. Taking us behind the story, Mikey Way details, “The inspiration for the song comes from a friend that was separated from a woman for some time, and she waited for him. When they were finally reunited, they had to reconcile the past while building an amazing new life together.”
