Dictator Ship is back! In 2020, the band launched their excellent debut album "Your Favorites", which received praise from fans and media alike, being called "An astounding live-in-studio debut" by UK's Classic Rock Magazine. Now the Swedish four piece is back, ready to launch their second studio album "Electric Jihad" in September 2023. Blending energetic and raw rock'n'roll with exquisite multi-layered vocal harmonies and melodies inspired by 60's soul and doo-wop, the band has carved out their very own niche in the rock landscape, perfectly displayed throughout the whole album. In many ways, the album is the natural progression of their debut. The band explains:This is a step up from our first album in every single way. We knew from the start that we wanted more harmonies in the vocals and more structure in the guitars than we had on "Your Favorites" and we are very satisfied with the end result. It's also a reflection of how we as a group feel about the society we live in. The true frustration that a capitalist pig power structure plants in you may not bring out the best solutions to the problem, but it's true and honest and should be taken seriously either way. The Album Electric Jihad was produced by Stefan Brändström (Gatuplan, Märvel, Side Effects, Satan takes a holiday, The Holy Ghost) and the band in The Dustward Studio, Stockholm. Stefan also mixed and mastered the record. As with their debut album, Dictator Ship has once again teamed up with The Sign Records, who will release the album world wide on black vinyl, and all streaming services.

Scandi Rock meets Southern Rock with attitude

     —RPM, https://rpmonline.co.uk/?p=22823

'And Then I Heard About The Groove,' kicks serious ass. 'City Girl,' is bluesy and ballsy. 'Sorry State,' turns and twists through the mirage of time. 'Those Without Power,' rampages through. 'Resignation Boogie,' brings the blip through

     —THE MEDIAN MAN, https://www.themedianman.com/dictator-ship-electri

Anyone with even the slightest penchant for the rock, the roll or any combination of the two can't help but feel an instantaneously involuntary compulsion to strap on the old invisible guitar and throw a broad selection of shapes to its rip-roaring charms

a harmonious rebellion that resonates with the essence of rock 'n' roll

     —Maximum volume music, https://maximumvolumemusic.com/review-in-brief-dic

There's Punk there, and there's New Wave, but there's also stuff like Foo Fighters, The Who and the MC5, not to mention a dollop of Funk and Soul. It's mesmerising and impressive
