The Life Electric // Class of 2014
The Life Electric are Joey Chehade – lead vocals, Ben Leang – guitar and keyboards, James DiNanno – drums, Cory Bean – bass
Sometimes, when you know, you just know. And when former Action Verbs frontman Joey Chehade met up with three-fifths of the former Gold Star Morning guys, they just knew.
The Life Electric was born in 2011, bringing a sound that’s been uniquely described as a combination of modern disco, The Flaming Lips, and pure f***ing rock. The band first came to our attention with their self-titled debut release in May of 2012.
They followed up with the Calico EP in early 2013. The Life Electric’s fall single, “Heartbeat” was released in November 2013 with 100% of the song’s proceeds going straight to Crash Safely, a charity benefiting The National Multiple Sclerosis Society.
With gigs opening for the likes of Neon Trees, Crash Kings, and Marcy Playground under their collective belt, The Life Electric have set out for the ultimate goal in 2014: to make an epically catchy, inspired, and maybe a little weird full-length record. Game on.
