Pet Shop Boys will release their 12th studio album, Electric, on July 15. The album comes less than a year from 2012's Elysium and will be their first since leaving Parlophone to start their own label, x2. The album was produced by Les Rhythms Digitales' Stuart Price who co-wrote Madonna's "Hung Up," wrote music for the 2012 London Olympics opening ceremony, and has worked with New Order, Scissor Sisters and others. You can check out the video for "Axis" from Electric below.

Neil Tennant and Chris Lowe will be going on tour to support the new album as well, and will play two nights in NYC at Beacon Theatre on September 16 & 17. Tickets go on VIP presale on Wednesday (5/1) at 10 AM (password is "PSB2013") with the regular on-sale happening Friday (5/3) at 10 AM. All tour dates are listed, along with the new video, below.
