Liverpool Psych Festival Launches 2017 Season (Sept. 22-23 Weekend + Pre-Festival Events)

Liverpool Psych Festival Gears Up for 2017 Season (September 22-23)

The Liverpool International Festival of Psychedelia (a.k.a. Liverpool Psych Fest or PZYK) kicks into overdrive on September 22-23, celebrating artists operating at the cutting edge of today’s global psychedelic renaissance, alongside visual art, film, performance and mind expanding visual delights. Once again, masses of psychedelic activities will pack the warehouses and recesses of Camp & Furnace, Blade Factory + District in Liverpool’s so-called Baltic Triangle for a global psychedelic frenzy.

Liverpool Psych Fest finds is a frontrunner of the psychedelic scene, while communities and festivals are flourishing in a global movement in consciousness. Prepare for the time of your life as PZYK presents a whole host of sonic and visual delights in multiple dimensions. This is a true exploration and celebration of extremes. High on visual aesthetics, this festival combines post-industrial architecture with its acid house rave atmosphere and art gallery space with an awesome village kind of mentality. This cohesive approach makes for a breathing art installation much like a psychedelic technicolor dream.

The 2017 programme features an exciting opening party and launch events, exclusive pre-festival gig (headlined by New Jersey’s Ducktails, led by Real Estate guitarist Matt Mondanile), a film programme, exclusive new virtual reality installations, daytime events, and an immersive late night audio visual experience, in addition to a month-long art exhibition developed on key visual themes and ideas present across this year’s aesthetic.

PZYK offers the world’s greatest psychedelic music to bring festival-goers an awe-inspiring trip to the sub-ultrasonic zone, with remarkable live performances interspersed with DJ sets. Headliners include Texas’ neo-psych favorites The Black Angels and Croydon space rock veterans LoopThe 2017 PZYK Congregation also includes Lætitia Sadier, A Place To Bury Strangers, The KVB, The Telescopes, Songhoy Blues, Träd Gräs och Stenar, Träden, W.I.T.C.H (We Intend To Cause Havoc), The Holydrug Couple, Wolf People, The Bug vs Dylan Carlson, Jane Weaver, Adrian Sherwood, Fujiya & Miyagi, The Comet is Coming, White Manna, GNOD, Endless Boogie, Sex Swing, Castles, In Bliss, Celestial Bums, and many more artists.

Following its fantastic inception in 2016, PZYK COLONY – an immersive, 360-degree audiovisual installation – will again transform the Camp warehouse space into a late-night shifting, geometric cube from 11pm to 3am throughout the festival. The live installation re-imagines this industrial space as an intense, singular light-emitting diode, a trance-den-cum-live-space, and will play host to much anticipated performances by The KVB, Loop, The Bug vs Dylan Carlson, Sex Swing, The Comet is Coming, and Adrian Sherwood.

One of the stand-out events is a showcase from California’s Castle Face Records, called ‘Irregular Orbits’, which involves five bands from the label’s roster – Once & Future Band, Male Gaze, Magnetix, Duds, Exit Group (Useless Eaters side project). A world-first for the label, which is now one of the world’s leading off-kilter psych music imprints.

PZYK presents a mix of international and homegrown artists providing a soundtrack to late September madness. The international diversity of this year’s acts are underlined by performances by Songhoy Blues (Mali), Laetitia Sadier and Acid Arab (France), Dans Dans(Belgium), The Holydrug Couple (Chile), Celestial Bums (Spain), White Manna (California), Julie’s Haircut (Italy), and Hurricane Heart Attacks (Argentina).

This is the sixth year for the festival. The first festival took place in 2012, being international event from the outset. In just a few years, this has become perhaps the most renowned Psych Fest in the world. In fact, it was named ‘Best Small Festival’ at the 2015 NME Awards.

PZYK presents a special ‘Psychedelia In Film’ season, with screenings at FACT (Foundation for Art and Creative Technology) of a series of short films drawing on the theme of sensory overload and excess. The screenings will be accompanied by specially curated PZYK playlists in the Picturehouse bar, plus a Q&A with PZYK organizers around the festival’s themes.

Festival-goers will also enjoy the ‘Musings In Drone’ symposia, which is a tripped-out chat show, digging out the stories, tales and experiences of the artists, labels and heads within today’s neo-psych scene. Hosted by audio-oracle Bernie Connor from the Sound Of Music podcast, this edition features Q&As with The Black Angels, collaboration with the #AUDiNT research cell (an investigation of sonic extremes in A Century Of Zombie Sound presentation), and W.I.T.C.H.’s Emmanuel ‘Jagari’ Chanda with collaborator Jacco GardnerMatt Jones of Castle Face Records will also talk about the label’s journey from the Californian underground to the label’s journey from the Californian underground to the world-class psych label it is today – he will be joined by guests from the label’s roster.

As well, the organizers introduces PZYK SKAN, a major immersive AV installation, which is a brain-scanning-meets-audiovisual-extremes collaboration between Luciana Haill, Rob Strachan, PZYK AV and #AUDiNT research cell.

All of the above are carefully curated elements that give LiverpoolPsych FestIval its global appeal, and the 2017 edition will undoubtedly become an even more attractive prospect for fans of psychedelia. Running with the motto “THIS FESTIVAL WILL DESTROY YOU”, the organizers qualify “unless it destroys us first”. Prepare for the PZYK of your life… but if you can’t be there, California’s KFJC 89.7FM will be broadcasting the festival live from the four festival stages, as well as interviews, online via KFJC.org and on FM in the San Francisco Bay area.

The PZYK opening party will take place on Thursday, September 21 at Constellations. Real Estate’s Matt Mondanile bring his Ducktailsproject to Liverpool for this event, joined by Strange Collective‘s Ali Horn, and Goa Express. More detailed information, as well as weekend and day tickets, are available from http://liverpoolpsychfest.com

New Zero God, Rumors, and Nochnoy Dozor – Live @ Embros Theatre, 5 May

On Friday 5 May, a rock concert will take place at Embros Self-Managed Theatre (Riga Palamidi 2, Psirri, Athens – Greece) with free entrance.
These three bands are: New Zero God, Rumors, and Nochnoy Dozor.


New Zero God was formed in 2006 in Athens by Mike Pougounas, former singer of the Greek band The Flowers of Romance.

From the onset, they seamlessly mixed punk rock, post punk, and goth which carried over onto their debut album “Fun Is A Four Letter Word” eventually ending up in the top ten of Terrorizer Magazine [UK] for two months in 2011.

Their mini album “Club Bizarre” followed, released by UK label Secret Sin Records and on January 2013 the same label put out New Zero God’s album “MMXIII”.

The band returned in 2016 with the album “Short Tales & Tall Shadows”, listed by many international media as one of the best releases for 2016.

Other New Zero God releases included two 7” singles “Destination Unknown / Forever Today” (Surgut Resort Records – 2013) and the split single “Redemption / Madhouse Magical” (New Savage Records UK – 2016), which shared sides with Scottish band Savage Cut on the other side.

On the band’s Bandcamp page one can download for free the mini album “Zona Pericolosa” recorded live in Italy.

The band also released two charity digital singles. The track “The Night Calls Your Name” with all artist proceeds going directly to the UK’s “Sophie Lancaster Foundation”, which deals with hate crimes. The track “Second Chance” has all artist proceeds going directly to the U.S. foundation HAWC, which provides aid to those suffering from domestic and child abuse.

In 2014, New Zero God brought together five Greek bands, putting together a festival to raise money for medicines to the Hellinikon Medical Center.

The band will perform with the following line up:
Mike Pougounas – Vocals
Akis Nikolaidis – Guitar
John Psimopoulos – Drums
Mike Semertzoglou – Bass

Nochnoy Dozor was formed on December 2015.
They are a five piece Athenian band which puts together different music influences creating an atmospheric sound on rock music forms.

Although the band members are also playing with other bands (Universe217, Mapplerun, Blame Canada, One Man Drop) the idea of Nochnoy Dozor’s project is different.

The band is now on their first recording steps while playing live in Athens.

Phantogram and The Veldt Spring Eastern U.S. Tour, March 11-17 11 March 2017

Phantogram and The Veldt to Embark on East Coast Tour, March 11-17

Alternative pop icons Phantogram and shoegaze alternative soul pioneers The Veldt have announced they will play six exclusive U.S. East Coast cities before the former departs for their European tour. The duo will again return to the U.S.A. in mid-April for two separate appearances at Coachella.

Phantogram is touring in support of their recently released their third studio album ‘Three’ (Republic Records). Consisting of Josh Carter (guitars) and Sarah Barthel (keyboards), the duo formed in 2007. On ‘Three’, they take their sound in an enthralling, darker direction, adding new textures to their signature style. This album represents a new creative peak they’ve been building towards for nearly a decade. The latest chapter in the duo’s impressive ascent to the forefront of alternative pop, this iridescent record glows with warmth even as it explores the desolation of personal pain. This is also proof that nothing, at this point, can hold them back.

This six-date joint tour kicks off on Saturday, March 11 at Chicago’s Riviera Theatre, followed by dates in St. Paul, MN (Palace Theatre), Madison, WI (Orpheum Theater), Urbana, IL (Canopy Club), Cincinnati, OH (Bogart’s), and Atlanta, GA (The Tabernacle).

The Veldt are touring in support of their EP ‘The Shocking Fuzz of Your Electric Fur: The Drake Equation’ the band’s first new recording in fifteen years, which will be released worldwide on June 2 via Schoolkids Records, home to artists such as Adam Franklin & Swervedriver, Tommy Keene and Bettie Serveert with a history of collaboration with artists such as New Model Army, Daniel Lanois and Emm Gryner.

The Veldt formed in the late 80’s in Raleigh amongst the royalty of the legendary North Carolina music scene, including bands such as Superchunk, Archers of Loaf, The Connells, Dillon Fence, The dBs, Squirrel Nut Zippers, and Ryan Adams. Pitchfork recently included their album ‘Afrodisiac’ in the top 50 shoegaze albums eve released. Today their musical output is in the same ballpark as A.R.Kane, Cocteau Twins, Massive Attack, and Jesus & Mary Chain.

Signed to Capitol Records in 1989 and eventually Mercury Records, The Veldt embarked on a musical journey that changed their lives. The soon found themselves in the studio with dream-gaze guru Robin Guthrie, touring America with Cocteau Twins and the UK with The Jesus and Mary Chain and working with leading producers Lincoln Fong of Moose on their debut album ‘Marigolds’ and Ray Schulman (Bjork, Sugarcubes, The Sundays) on ‘Afrodisiac’. The Veldt were a sensation from the start and part of a movement of innovators, who came of musical age at a time when rhythmic rebels were reflective, gritty and wild. Their sound inspired future generations of alternative artists, including TV On the Radio.

The Veldt have collaborated with TV On The Radio, Mos Def, The Jesus & Mary Chain, Lady Miss Kier (Deee-Lite), and most recently with A.R.Kane, and have shared the stage with the likes of The Pixies, Throwing Muses, Echo & The Bunnymen, Cocteau Twins, Manic Street Preachers, The Jesus and Mary Chain, Oasis and Living Colour.

The band reformed in 2016 and their new EP started to make the rounds with a 2016 vinyl release via Manchester’s Leonard Skully Records. Their return was met with incredible enthusiasm and significant press attention, including from The Guardian (UK), who say “the new songs invite paradoxical praise: serenely assaultive and vertiginously soothing.” In the past year, the band did a mini-tour with The Brian Jonestown Massacre, embarked on two Canadian tours, toured and played multiple festivals across Europe.
