PDF One-Sheet

“Loud As Laughter” is a thrashing, wild beast of a track - frightening in its intensity (think Arab on Radar meets Throbbing Gristle). Listening to it brings back memories of an episode of Soviet-era cartoon Nu Pogodi - the one where the main character ends up in a rocket and is shaken in a violent simulation of an astronaut’s experience... There’s a reason why it hits so hard - Psychic Graveyard features the noise rock scene’s creme da la creme in its ranks. - I HEART NOISE

Following the release of two singles, backed with remixes from MSTRKRFT and LIARS respectively, SKiN GRAFT Records is honored to announce the impending release of PSYCHIC GRAVEYARD's full-length debut. "Loud As Laughter" will be released on May 17th as a Black Vinyl LP, an MOD Compact Disc and as a Deluxe Ultimate Edition - that brings together the CD and the LP - with a unique "Over-Wrap OBI", and a full color double-sided Poster-Lyric sheet.

About Psychic Graveyard:
Noise Rock pioneers, Eric Paul (Arab On Radar, The Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), Paul Vieira (The 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 new single and LP title track, "Loud As Laughter " - 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.

A video for "Loud As Laughter" will premeire online this Monday, March 25th at Brooklyn Vegan - and Psychic Graveyard have announced their first live shows; in conjunction with Child Abuse; who are touring in support of their five-song suite on the Chicago vs New York compilation (details below).

3/27 Brooklyn, NY @ Brooklyn Bazaar
3/28 Pittsburgh, PA @ Brillo Box
3/29 Baltimore, MD @ The Crown

CHICAGO vs. NEW YORK... It’s a war that’s been waged ever since the early settlers started razing the land and long before the first high rises reached for the skies. Now SKiN GRAFT Records raises the stakes, pitting each city’s finest ‘head to head’ in a battle royale where everybody wins. TWO NEW SONGS FROM EACH BAND!

CHEER-ACCIDENT vs. The FLYING LUTTENBACHERS
In the lead off position, progressive rock’s genre-defying Cheer-Accident enlist an assist from Dead Rider-slash-U.S. Maple’s Todd Rittmann for the opening volley “War is A Warrior” - and in a dramatic about face, flesh-out and finish up a previously unrecorded composition (dating all the way back to the “Salad Days” / “Trading Balloons” era) by the band’s dearly departed Phil Bonnet.

In response, Chicago expatriates The Flying Luttenbachers switch sides and make their New York debut with their first new recordings in over a decade (both exclusive to this release). With unparalleled precision, Weasel Walter’s new line-up radically reinterpret the band’s punk-jazz standard “Demonic Velocities” and bring a brutal blast beating to all comers with the new composition “Prelude to Mutation”.

LOVELY LITTLE GIRLS vs. SKRYPTOR
Led by visual artist Gregory Jacobsen and Cheer-Accident alumni Alex Perkolup, Lovely Little Girls is the kraut-prog, art-pop, big-band cream of Chicago’s bountiful avant-rock crop. With “Be Good To Your Shoes” & “Emphatic Service”, Lovely Little Girls combine complex, hi-fructose arrangements with a sour, yet perfectly-seasoned pop sensibility only hinted at previously.

flyers

Sporting a line-up of loud-rock luminaries culled from the likes of Dazzling Killmen and craw, NYC instrumental trio Skryptor meld Black Sabbath’s hazy stomp with the ecstatic modal improvisation of Mahavishnu Orchestra; the leering bass lurch of Touch & Go Records’ glory days; and the cerebral bite of the city’s contemporary metal underground.

BOBBY CONN vs. CELLULAR CHAOS
A veteran of Chicago’s No Wave scene, Bobby Conn quickly developed a reputation for delivering messages of hope, politics, despair, revolution and bullshit in a quasi-falsetto, all the while decked to the nines in glitter, eyeliner and high heels. Extravagantly excessive art rock for today’s stripped-down lifestyles.

More than any other act currently at-large, Cellular Chaos mirror, reflect and escalate the spirit of NYC’s 1970’s downtown avant-garde music scene - re-upping the ante in their hi-gloss, take no prisoners blend of neo-new wave kicks, glam raunch and no wave noise-rock.

TIJUANA HERCULES vs CHILD ABUSE

Fronted by singer/guitarist John Forbes of Chicago noise rock heroes Mount Shasta and christened in part after “Tijuana Bibles”, the clandestine depression-era comics which cast mainstream cartoon characters in pornographic situations, Tijuana Hercules bang out boundary-busting blues and psychedelic, tangled roots music that's grown out in all the wrong places.

One of the most innovative, polarizing bands in New York - and coming in at a solid last place - Child Abuse go for the gut in a typically atypical way-eschewing their new-math, proto-prog precision and 12 tone composition for a five-movement-long deep dive into death metal atmospherics, scum-rock histrionics and grating noise improvisation.

Glass Mastered Compact Disc comes packaged in a Six-Panel Gatefold Jacket with SKiN GRAFT Cartoons and Band Photos. Designed by Gumballhead The Cat’s Rob Syers and SKiN GRAFT’s Mark Fischer. Mastered by Todd Rittmann. Curated by SKiN GRAFT Records.

- and
LIARS' Angus Andrew shared this... "so very honoured to remix Psychic Graveyard. All members are legends in their own right.

SKRYPTOR
"Luminous Volumes" Gold Vinyl LP / MOD CD / Book / Ultimate Edition
Pre-Order through Bandcamp and get the SKRYPTOR teaser for immediate Download!

"Luminous Volumes", the debut LP by NYC instrumental trio Skryptor, is the work of learned veterans with a holistic command of loud-rock techniques. The band's members, who have contributed to Dazzling Killmen, Craw, Stats and many other projects, bring together various influences — from Black Sabbath's hazy stomp to Sonny Sharrock's fiery improvisations and the ecstatic prog-jazz of Mahavishnu Orchestra - to create a complex yet immediate sound. A joint release between renowned labels Aqualamb, Sleeping Giant Glossolalia and SKiN GRAFT Records, the album will be released on vinyl CD and as an Ultimate Edition which pairs both with a deluxe, illustrated 200+ page book featuring original horror stories curated by Skryptor bassist David McClelland.

Skryptor's roots stretch back to the early '90s post-hardcore underground. Cleveland's Craw and St. Louis’ Dazzling Killmen, two of the more advanced and unusual bands of the era, struck up a friendship and occasionally shared the stage. David McClelland and Tim Garrigan - guitarists in Craw and the Killmen — respectively, reconnected when both found themselves living in New York in the early 2000s.

In Skryptor, they join up with Hank Shteamer, drummer for bands including Stats and an avid longtime fan of McClelland and Garrigan's prior bands. A 2015 Craw box set, spearheaded by Shteamer and co-released by Aqualamb, led to two reunion gigs, which in turn became the direct impetus for Skryptor: “When Craw powered up again, I realized I had come to some sort of peace with the idea of making music as an endless process, and began stockpiling musical ideas. That led in a pretty natural way to Skryptor,” says McClelland, who had drifted away from making music in the preceding years

flyers

Shteamer and McClelland set about writing together, with McClelland on bass for the first time in his musical career. Upon realizing they needed a third instrumental voice, they approached Garrigan about getting involved. He agreed to join, and the nascent band immediately dove into writing its debut, intensively reworking the compositions over and over until they were left with a crisp 35 minutes of music, free of any “dead air,” as Shteamer puts it. "They had some good riffs/arrangements of some things, and gave me room to add and stretch out parts," explains Garrigan. "I eventually contributed more writing/arrangement wise."

The results range from the muscular, kinetic prog-punk of "Red Mountain" and the wild synchronized shredding of "Raga" to the gentle atmospherics of epic album closer "Summer Blossoms." Fans of the members prior bands will recognize a similar brand of gritty intensity and brainy intricacy in Skryptor, coupled with a new focus on concision, power and improvisational depth.

SKRYPTOR will also appear on...

PSYCHIC GRAVEYARD
New Band from DOOMSDAY STUDENT and ALL LEATHER Members
release 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.

ad

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, RI and San Diego, CA.  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 is now available as a Digital Single and as a Limited Edition, Manufactured on Demand CD Single in Jewel Case packaging. It can ordered from SKiN GRAFT Records Bandcamp Store or Paypal Shop.
