"Holiday in Heaven"
It's been almost a year since the release of The Battery Electric's The Heart and The Thrill. Today, the Asbury Park band share their new single, "Holiday in Heaven," by way of a photo video. The song is the first taste of the band's upcoming Lose Control EP, recorded with Paul Ritchie. It's also the first video in a planned series that will see the band doing something similar for each song on the EP until we get the whole thing.
This oughta be fun. I'm sitting here watching "Holiday in Heaven" and remembering some pretty crazy shows with the Battery boys, like their wild and snowy LP release show last year at Asbury Lanes. Have fun picking yourself out. I know I did.
As for the song, it is a rocker in the grand tradition of what we've come to expect from The Battery Electric featuring a particularly soulful performance from frontman Ron Santee and some major shredding from guitarist Brent Bergholm.
Check out the video and the Lose Control tracklist below, and keep your eyes peeled for the next entry. Also, don't forget to catch The Battery Electric when they open for The Dictators NYC at Asbury Park's House of Independents on February 19th.
