Dictator Ship 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 on the new album. The second single leading up to »Electric Jihad« is called »City Girl« and is released on the 18th of August on The Sign Records.

The band comments on »City Girl«: “It’s a song about romance. About meeting a fantastic someone that you really want to sleep with and hang out with but you know you won’t ever get the chance. What can you do? You just get yourself a drink and move on.”

Pre-order »Electric Jihad« on black vinyl:


Dictator Ship! A frenetic rock’n’roll quartet channeling their inner obsession of 60’s soul and doo-wop, inspired by early giants such as Sam & Dave, Sly & The Family Stone, Jackie Wilson and The Platters. Their live act is often described as a combination of the raging sound of The Sonics, the discontent attitude of MC5 and the pure stamina of Elvis Presley in Las Vegas.

Dictator Ship released their debut album »Your Favorites« on The Sign Records in 2020. The album was received with acclaim and Classic Rock Magazine marks it as “An astounding live-in-studio debut from a raw twin-guitar-fronted quartet of Swedes, all of whom double on vocals, channeling the MC5’s explosive, action-rock remodel of 60s soul. Essential. 9/10”. In 2021, Dictator Ship released two singles that will be followed by their second album »Electric Jihad« in September 2023, along with three more singles.

»Electric Jihad« is a step up from the debut album in every single way, with more harmonies in the vocals and more structure in the guitars. It’s also a reflection of how the band feels about the society they live in.

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.
