Black Joe Lewis will release 'Electric Slave' on August 27th via Vagrant Records, with the group touring shortly thereafter. Today Lewis shares one of his new tunes, "Skulldiggin", with listeners.

"Electric Slave is what people are today with their faces buried in their iPhones and the only way to hold a conversation is through text. The next step is to plug it in to your damned head. Nothing is up front anymore and people are de socializing." -- Black Joe Lewis
