Alternative / psych rock band PSYENCE released their long awaited debut album in August 2019. The self titled album is a 10 track opus shaped by years of hard touring up and down the UK and in Europe, channelled into a release that traverses psych rock, rock n roll and electronica, with soaring melodies and huge guitar riffs.
"Our debut album is an intense chemical reaction of face-melting riffs and groove-laden tunes," the band explains, "It's a product of many years toiling away in backroom venues and countless van-hours. It's a working man's release. Tune in. Drop out!"
PSYENCE's debut album generated great reviews in Bearded Magazine, Uber Rock, and Sonic Abuse, amongst others, and was voted a Top 50 album of the year by Power Play Magazine.
Developing a fearsome reputation for their incendiary live shows, the band have become firm favourites at the Shiiine On Festivals (and Cruise) and continue to grow as a festival band. Recent supports included Saint Agnes, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, The Blinders and Warmduscher.
Stoke on Trent based PSYENCE are Steve 'Wedge' Pye (lead vocals and guitar); Jay 'Colonel' Bellingham (bass); Joe 'Gonzo' Walsh (drums); Ben 'Pig' Nixon (keys and synthesizer); and Jamie 'Carty' Cartlidge (rhythm guitar and vocals).
