Announce New Album One Track Mind
Out February 19, 2013 On Sacred Bones Records
Stream “Might Take A While”:
Psychic Ills are proud to announce their fourth studio record, One Track Mind, out February 19 on Sacred Bones Records. The Brooklyn group will tour North America immediately following this release.
When it comes to following the beat of their own drum, New York’s Psychic Ills have exemplified the phrase since their beginnings in 2003. Initially spawned from electronic-centered home recording experiments, they progressed into all-night full-band exploration in a neighborhood where noise wasn’t a problem. They soon after evolved into a live band seemingly at home within the extended jam, exploring a variety of musical terrain. The early years saw several releases for Social Registry, tons of time on the road, and collaborations with artists as diverse as Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers) and Sonic Boom (Spacemen Three/ Spectrum). In 2011, their first effort for Sacred Bones, Hazed Dream traded in the synthesizer space-outs and raga rumbles, and delivered a record of sunburned psych pop, awash in warm tones and blues damaged songwriting.
In 2012 they did two full US tours including a stop at Austin Psych Fest, and had their first trip to China. In August of 2012 they released the song “Take Me With You” as a split 7″ with Moon Duo. They recorded One Track Mind, their fourth full length, this fall. This track features production & back up vocals by Neil Michael Hagerty of Royal Trux/The Howling Hex. The album artwork is by former 13th Floor Elevators songwriter and artist Powell St. John. There will also be a limited value-add covers 7″ available at most retail outlets, containing the Ills’ takes on The Godz’ “Radar Eyes” and private press psych pop obscurity Cosmic Michaels’ “Cosmic Michael Theme”.
