William Control is an American electronic music project founded in 2008 in Seattle, Washington. It was the side project of Aiden’s William Francis before Aiden's hiatus, and he now operates as William Control full-time. 'William Control' therefore refers to both the band as a whole and to Francis as his stage name. Francis was signed to Victory Records before starting his own independent label Control Records, and, as William Control, has released four full-length albums (Hate Culture, Noir, Silentium Amoris, and The Neuromancer), an EP (Novus Ordo Seclorum), two acoustic albums (Skeleton Strings and Skeleton Strings 2), two live DVDs (Live in London Town and Babylon) and a remix album (Remix). The first EP (The Pale) of the fifth studio album Revelations was released on October 14, 2016. This album will be split into 4 separate EPs released over a period of months instead of one single release. The second EP The Black was released on February 17, 2017 and the third titled The Red followed that with a release date of July 14 of the same year. Since The Neuromancer Francis has referred to his band as 'The Neuromantic Boys', and the 'Boys' currently consist of Kenneth Fletcher (who has been a part of the William Control project since Hate Culture), Ian MacWilliams, and Ben Tourkantonis, with Crilly Ashes standing in for Fletcher for some of 2017's live shows.
