We got a surprise early release from Alt Press today with the debut of "I Lied" by Mikey Way's new project Electric Century.
"I Lied" is an earnest electronic pop song with a dark undercurrent that, if transcribed into a visual aesthetic, would lie somewhere between Tron and a dark room filled with balloons and twinkle lights.
In an exclusive interview with MTV, Mikey revealed that Electric Century has been a long time in the making- almost two decades. In his long and storied history of coming up with great band names, Mikey developed the idea for the band in 7th grade, and had been sending snippets of music to Dave Debiak for years before the band officially came to fruition.
You can listen to "I Lied" on the AP website now, and the song will be released on iTunes on February 26th.
Electric Century features Mikey Way, Dave Debiak, and Justin Siegel, and their debut album, produced by D James Goodwin will be released later this year.
