About The Band
an artist needs an outlet for his other creative visions that don't coincide with what he's doing, it makes sense to start
work on a side project to get it out of your system. William Control is the electronic side project of William Francis of
"Aiden", who needed a way to purge himself of all of creative talent that was confined in his body while he worked diligently
on his main project, much to the joy of fans everywhere. It was in 2008 that "Hate Culture", William Control's debut album,
was released into the world, instantly gaining a wide audience of fans from all over that praised him for his work. Telling
the story of a man's last night on Earth before he kills himself, "Hate Culture" was received incredibly well by fans and
critics alike, spawning a handful of singles. It was in 2010 that the next William Control album was released, "Noir", which
included a number of Francis' friends heading into the studio to contribute. It was in that same year that William Francis
decided to leave the record label, Victory Records, and began to record and release music on his own record label, Control
Records. Keeping fans happy with a five track EP in 2011, William released his third album, "Silentium Amoris". With one more
EP being released to tide fans over until his next album to be released in December 2013, William Control has been an incredibly
active side project that many have found to be a better use of time than William's main project.
While already a well known musician and artist, it wasn't going to take much for William Francis to prove that
he had what it takes to start his own electronic side project. But he was able to completely blow critics and audiences away
when he emerged with his debut album, "Hate Culture". Showing a side of himself that many hadn't seen while William is at
work with "Aiden", this debut album was more than enough to convince anyone that this was more than just an ordinary side
project. The album peaked at number twelve on the Billboard Electronic albums chart and placed fairly high on the Heatseekers
chart as well, providing early evidence that William Francis was more than capable of taking his creative vision to places
that he hadn't yet been.
William Control Trivia
After you listen to a few songs or read a few track titles,
it might not take long to realize that this electronic project contains some dark tones and subjects. With his debut album
being about the story of a man's last night on Earth before he kills himself, William Francis set the tone for William Control
early on to be a dark synth band. He continued on with this theme throughout his releases with his second album, "Noir", but
most notably with his single track contributions to iTunes that were spoken word tracks of work by Edgar Allen Poe. Starting
with "Eleanora", William Control created four spoken word tracks to iTunes that were all Edgar Allen Poe works such as "The
Tell Tale Heart", "The Raven" and "The Oval Portrait".

world of electronic music, then you can't go wrong at all in checking out William Control on his newest tour! Taking electronic
synth music and throwing a dark cowl over it, William Francis has been providing the most intriguing and entertaining electronic
