This year, 2013 sees Psyche celebrating 30 years of live performance, since our debut on stage in Edmonton, Alberta at the end of 1982. We plan a very special release in autumn to coincide with our shows after the summer. Some new songs, as well as old songs renewed, for example the re-recording of "Sanctuary", "Tears", "Krieg", "The Crawler", and "Goodbye Horses" which we have added to our latest performances.
Also, we continue our exclusive Bandcamp Specials with a recording of The Human League's "The Things That Dreams Are Made Of" which was completed together with Robert Enforsen (Elegant Machinery) to perform on our mini-tour through Sweden.
Eventually some of these specials will be added to iTunes, Amazon, and most of the usual outlets around the world, but for the moment this is a great opportunity to get some rare material when it's fresh, and at a fair price in any file format you like. Live concerts from our archives will continually be posted. We started with last year's Paris show at La Scéne, and a few bonus tracks from Mons, Belgium from that same weekend. Up now is a recently remastered live concert from Paris, La Locomotiv 2001, and Malmö, Sweden from 1992!
Many more good quality live shows to follow... http://psyche.bandcamp.com/

"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 first pressing is also nearly sold out.
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!
We have continually made donations to Bradley Manning's defense fund from sales of our second Bandcamp only EP
"We are Bradley Manning". To inform yourselves of this cause, and it's importance to all of us living in what we hope to be the "free" world, please visit: BradleyManning.Org.
Enjoy these releases. More activities will follow. Hope to see you around at our next shows in 2013.
3 decades going strong. Thanks for listening, coming to see us perform, and support of Psyche's music throughout the years.
