New Band from DOOMSDAY STUDENT and ALL LEATHER Members announce Debut Single; Remix by Electro-House duo MSTRKRFT
Noise Rock pioneers, Eric Paul (Arab On Radar, Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), Paul Vieira (Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), and Nathan Joyner (Some Girls, All Leather, Hot Nerds) venture through uncharted territory with their new band, Psychic Graveyard. The band’s debut single, "Dead In Different Places" - set to be released early in 2019 through SKiN GRAFT Records - exemplifies the raw tapestry of sounds that characterize the new endeavor. Nathan Joyner’s grinding synths and “found sound” buries the seed of each song deep into the fertile ground - while Paul Vieira’s manic, fuzzed-out guitars and Eric Paul’s obsessive lyrics shower the proceedings with equal parts sunshine and rain.
"Dead In Different Places" is the first single to be released off their debut album, "Loud As Laughter", which is due out Spring 2019. According to the band, the process of writing the album was unusual for them. Throughout 2018, San Diego-based Joyner would send files filled with the skeletons of songs to Vieira and Paul in Providence, Rhode Island. The two would add their parts, and then the songs would undergo an arduous, back and forth until all of the members agreed on the final version. The distance of the members and the anomalous approach to writing resulted in a diverse, yet coherent album that picks-up and drops-off the listener at dramatically different places. Like nerve endings spliced and sewn back together, the process spawned a whole new auditory system - which serves as the infrastructure for Psychic Graveyard.
The single was engineered by Joyner and mixed by Psychic Graveyard in Providence, Rhode Island and San Diego, California. The B-side to "Dead In Different Places" features a radical reinterpretation of the title track - a stunning remix by the illustrious Dance-Punk, Electro-House duo MSTRKFRT, who've previously been commissioned to remix songs by artists ranging from Katy Perry to Kylie Minogue; from Wolfmother to John Legend.
"Dead In Different Places" will be released as a Digital Single and as a Limited Edition, Manufactured on Demand CD Single in Jewel Case packaging. Live shows to support the release will be announced shortly.

after seeing Blague multiple times around KC (RIP Negative Space) i finally picked up the recordings. it's dark, it's heavy, it pounds unrelentingly. feel free to imagine the leather-clad behemoth from the album covers dancing in a strobelight while you're listening - it is the truth that makes the darkness shine. ivyvore
