History

The Age of Electric formed in 1989. Their commercial breakthrough came with their independent EP Ugly in 1993, which spawned several hits and set the stage for the major label release of their eponymously titled album The Age of Electric in 1995.

In 1996, the Dahle brothers released an album with their side project Limblifter, which was also commercially successful in Canada.

The band then released Make a Pest a Pet in 1997. The album produced the radio rock hit "Remote Control", which peaked at No. 9 on Canada's Singles Chart[1] and was later featured on MuchMusic's diamond certified compilation album, Big Shiny Tunes 2. Although it was the band's most successful album yet, being certified Gold in Canada in 1998,[2] tensions within the band led the group to break up after a 1998 tour as the opening band for Our Lady Peace.

Upon the break-up of The Age of Electric, the brothers Kerns went on to form Static in Stereo with other members, including their brother Ryan. Kurt Dahle went on to work with The New Pornographers. Todd Kerns became the bass player and backup vocalist for Slash's band, The Conspirators.

Reunion

In July 2015, The Age of Electric performed a reunion show scheduled in Calgary on August 29, 2015 (with opening act, Zuckerbaby), marking their first public performance together in over 17 years.[3]

In 2016, the band announced plans to release a remastered, expanded two-LP vinyl reissue of Make A Pest A Pet in February, 2017 in celebration of the album's 20th anniversary.[4] Simultaneously, the band announced plans to release a new four-song EP that same month. The first single from the new EP, "Keys", was released in November, 2016. Both the Make A Pest A Pet reissue and the new EP, titled The Pretty EP, were released on February 17, 2017.
