band, except maybe Pentagram, deserved the big stage more -- or used it
as well -- as Dolan and her band. I can only compare the ecstasy of her
stage presence to Bobby Liebling himself, the way she flung herself

Electric Citizen continue fall tour dates supporting metal legends Pentagram this
week, with the second leg picking up tomorrow in Philadelphia following
West Coast dates in late August. Please see complete dates below.
Electric Citizen's dynamic frontwoman Laura Dolan is often compared to Pentagram singer Bobby Liebling, which makes this pairing all the more fitting. The tour comes in the midst of the band's ongoing work on a new album at Black Keys' frontman Dan Auerbach's studio Easy Eye Sound with producer Brian Olive (The Arcs, Dr. John).

The band's highly praised performance at L.A.'s Psycho California festival earlier this summer was named by Consequence of Sound among the 10 best sets of the 3-day event.
Citizen is a rock n roll band from Cincinnati, Ohio whose heavy sound
is timeless and music to the ears of any rock n roll fan. Formed in 2013
by guitarist Ross Dolan, vocalist Laura Dolan, bassist Nick Vogelpohl
and drummer Nate Wagner, the band has busied itself with turning heads
and ears onto their music. Since signing with RidingEasy Records in
early 2014, they've done several direct support tours with Wolfmother, Fu Manchu, and Budos Band. The band's recent debut album Sateen ended up on several 'Best of 2014' lists.
Sateen is available on LP, CD and download via RidingEasy Records as of July 1st, 2014.
