Psychic Graveyard; the new band from Doomsday Student and All Leather members; follow up the release of their debut single “Dead In Different Places” (remixed by the Electro-House duo MSTRKRFT) with “Loud As Laughter”, the title track from their upcoming full-length album. The B-Side is an exclusive remix by Mute Records’ LIARS, which find’s the band’s Angus Andrew simultaneously expanding upon and tearing apart the the bold new territory tread on LIARS latest - LP “TFCF” – using Psychic Graveyard’s driving noise rock offensive to engage in a cacophonous, discordant band to band discourse.
About Psychic Graveyard:
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, "Loud As Laughter " - 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.
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, with remix duties handled by Liars’ Angus Andrew.
"Loud As Laughter" 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.
