Welcome to the Psyche Headquarters,
Now into our 30th year of performance, and unleashing our unique blend of Industrial, Synth-Pop, and Dark Wave
songscapes on the world at large.
Get ready to be "Thunderstruck"!
For the first two weeks of October we will be joining Canadian Electro-Pop Legends RATIONAL YOUTH for a tour together through Germany, and one stop in Poland. Still in October Psyche headlines the AEON OF SHADES FESTIVAL marking our return to Kassel for the first time in 10 years! Finally the last show this year will be on Halloween joining our friends NO MORE, and Bleedingblackwood and The Bernsteins. The "Thunderstruck" plus "Underrated" single is available in three different coloured vinyl 7" singles. A collaboration between both bands, and we will be taking advance orders on a signed postcard for this release while on tour. Click on the image above for more infos.
"The Saint Became A Lush (RadicalG Rework)" was our first digital single ever, and promptly climbed up the Top Ten in the German Alternative Charts (DAC). The mix is a slight update from last year's "Halloween EP (Fan Edition)" at Psyche's Bandcamp Store, and avaiable on iTunes, Amazon, Spotify, and other services worldwide. Here's the video: http://youtu.be/f2EU80xKljg
Although we have been issuing various archive recordings on the digital scene in the past few years, the first physical release of 2014 is "Re-Membering Dwayne" which has arrived on the US label Dark Entries as a special limited vinyl album that comes with a booklet containing selections of the official Psyche Diary written from 1982-83. The sound is PHAT!
Earlier this year...
February 15th saw Psyche return to play in Mexico City for the third time in the 5 years since our debut, and live album recording "Noche Oscura" there in 2008.
Here you will find many performances from around the world on the playlist: www.youtube.com/psyche-live
Check our updated schedule for new dates on the concerts page. Contact Endless Promotion for Bookings in the European Union.
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 2015. 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.
Enjoy these releases, and hope to see you around at our next shows. 3 decades going strong. Thanks for listening, coming to see us perform, and support of Psyche's music throughout the years.

Last year, 2013...
The Canadian Original LP Mix of "Insomnia Theatre" available digitally on iTunes, Amazon and co. as well.
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.

"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. The final copies were sold out 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!
