About Electric Eel Shock
Electric Eel Shock are a three-piece garage rock band, formed in Tokyo in the late 1990s. They first toured the United States in 1999 and have been touring the world ever since.
Electric Eel Shock are a glorious celebration of Classic Rock, Punk and Metal. A true power trio from the time before rock became fractured into a diverse multitude of sub-genres and we were all still one big happy Rock & Roll family.
“EES are nothing short of awesome” – Brent Hinds (Mastodon)
It’s been said if Nine Inch Nails and Daft Punk had a baby it might sound something like Tokyo based power trio - Villain. Combining cutting edge drum samples and progressive synth lines with hard driving power cords and deep bassline lines, Villain’s sound is so unique it’s impossible to define within a single genre. They’ve been accused of playing Rock, Metal, House, Techno and everything in between. Villain even made up a genre called Rocktronic but even that doesn’t do the band’s sound Justice.
A huge part of the Villain experience is their unbelievable live performance. It has to be seen and heard to be truly understood. Villain's manic, high-energy performances accompanied by rave-like lighting turn the band’s adrenalized concerts into mind-blowing experiences. It’s a dance party that rocks.
Villain consist of London-born bassist Alex Fujino, Boston's prodigal-guitarist-son Jon Pappas, and Toronto vocalist and button pusher, Mike Armstrong.
Mike is also known as progressive house DJ Model Citizen who, as a DJ and producer, and has played some of the top clubs in Tokyo including Ageha, Womb, Club Asia, and Bullets.
The Tokyo based power trio unleash their sound at GARRET udagawa Saturday August 6, 2016.
