Welcome to the Psyche Headquarters,
We will be saying goodbye to 2013 with a concert on December 19 at FZW in Dortmund, Germany.
Music news this year continued on Halloween, as we made the first taste of Psyche re-recordings available digitally with "The Saint Became A Lush (RadicalG Rework)" exclusive to the special Fan Edition of our "Halloween EP" on Bandcamp. The regular 7 track version of this EP, and the Canadian Original LP Mix of "Insomnia Theatre" have now been added to iTunes, Amazon and co. as well. Also available now is the live recording from Club Anything in Milwaukee, USA recorded during the "Endangered Species" tour in 2002. A very powerful performance with an enthusiastic audience!
The first physical release of 2014 will "Re-Membering Dwayne" which will arrive on the US label Dark Entries as a special limited vinyl album with a booklet containing selections of the official Psyche Diary written between 1982-83.
Our "Rare Mixes & B-Sides" was released to great acclaim on Friday the 13th in September. Again exclusively to our Bandcamp Store.This digital only collection of deleted CD-Single B-Sides, rare collaborations, and never before released mixes of songs from the 90's up to 2005 is for all to enjoy in any digital format you like. On the market as well is a new "Metal Dance" compilation by renowned DJ and artist Trevor Jackson which includes influential electronic tracks from '79-88 and features our classic "The Saint Became A Lush" in its original form with special liner notes containing details of Psyche's early story, plus the full explanation of this song for the first time ever!!
As we continue work on a new album, a special 12" Vinyl EP to include new versions of songs such as "Sanctuary", "Tears", "The Crawler", "Ghost", "Unveiling The Secret", "Lord Unleashed", "The Saint Became A Lush", and maybe one more round of "Goodbye Horses" is being mixed for release sometime in April, 2014. The plan is to then have our next album to include these tracks as a bonus CD to the all new album, which is still going through title changes, so best not to name it until it's truly ready for you all to hear.
Our now just over 30 year celebration will continue with historical music making in classic audio formats, as well as new music for future generations in 2014!

"As The Brain Collapses" on Infacted Recordings - a new collection of Psyche's harder edged Electro-Classics from the 80's has sold out! That leaves the last of our equally limited 23rd Anniversary Edition of "The Influence" (click to listen) on Italy's Final Muzik available on CD to order until it's 1,000 copies are gone. "The Influence" originally released in 1989 has been remastered, and re-sequenced, with bonus tracks, and a proper 8 page booklet including all lyrics plus previously unseen press photos, and additional credits. These CDs are available through the links here, just click on the album cover, or send your order request directly to PSYCHE.HQ.
Worldwide shipping for up to 2 Psyche CDs is available for just €3.50. For vinyl lovers, our "All Things Pass Into The Night" EP on OPTIMO MUSIC & KOMPAKT distribution has been a smash success. It's also down to the last copies being sold at our concerts. This 12" vinyl contains a refreshed 21st Century "Goodbye Horses" extended version, renamed as it deserves to be the "Immortality Mix". Also, the never before heard 5 minute version of "Eating Violins" found recently in the archives. Plus, 1987's original Electro-Funk Monster "Prisoner To Desire" in a newly intoxicated version. To round out the experience "Contorting The Image" appears remastered from the original source material. Side B can be played at 45 RPM or slowed down to 33 1/3 for a chilling experience!
Get yourself a copy, and blast it from a good old record player!
Enjoy these releases. More activities will follow. Hope to see you around at our next shows in 2013.
3 decades going strong. Thanks for listening, coming to see us perform, and support of Psyche's music throughout the years.
