’90s band Psychotica is back with two brand new singles and a US West Coast tour, which kicked off in May. The band, who officially returned to the public eye with a recent co-headlining gig at the Azkena Rock Festival in Spain, just released their All The Broken Souls 7″ on Greenway Records, on limited-edition clear vinyl. Its two tracks are also streaming on Spotify.
What started as a way to combat boredom within the New York music scene in the early ’90s turned into a wild ride for the members of Psychotica. As they were rehearsing for what would be their very first show, an A&R rep from American
Records happened to be walking by, heard them, and had a record deal on the table immediately. By their second show, fashion icon Stephen Sprouse had statues fashioned of the band, and placed them in the highly- acclaimed glam rock exhibit in the Rock ‘n’ Roll Hall of Fame (in the Amhet Ertegun Hall of Costumes, sandwiched next to David Bowie and Iggy Pop, you’ll find “Patrick Briggs from
Psychotica,” decked out in Saran Wrap and strung up on a neon cross.)
As their first year as a band unfolded, it was announced that Psychotica would be the opening act for Lollapalooza ’96, on a bill that featured Metallica, Rancid, The Ramones, Soundgarden, Devo, and The Godfather of Punk himself, Iggy Pop.
