Led by front man Dick Valentine yes ladies that's right Dick Valentine the Electric six are a six-piece band from Detroit, Michigan. Their style has been described as a brand of rock music infused with elements of "Garage, disco, punk rock, new wave, and metal." The band met recognition in 2003 with the singles "Danger! High Voltage" and "Gay Bar", and subsequently recorded nine full-length albums: Fire, Señor Smoke, Switzerland, I Shall Exterminate Everything Around Me That Restricts Me from Being the Master, Flashy, KILL, Zodiac, Heartbeats and Brainwaves, and Mustang.
They have also released a rarities album, Sexy Trash, and a live album entitled Absolute Pleasure. A live DVD, funded via Kickstarter, called Absolute Treasure was released for download in February 2014. Dick Valentine also announced on the Mustang tour that a new album was in the works.
