Psychic Ills will tour North American in support of their new record, One Track Mind, out February 19 on Sacred Bones Records. Fans of the Psychic Ills will have the opportunity to purchase One Track Mind at their record release show in New York at Bowery Ballroom on February 7 – a full two weeks before the album hits stores! There will also be an extremely limited edition new 7-inch available at this show only.

When it comes to following the beat of their own drum, New York’s Psychic Ills have exemplified the phrase since their beginnings in 2003. Initially spawned from electronic-centered home recording experiments, they progressed into all-night full-band exploration in a neighborhood where noise wasn’t a problem. They soon after evolved into a live band seemingly at home within the extended jam, exploring a variety of musical terrain. The early years saw several releases for Social Registry, tons of time on the road, and collaborations with artists as diverse as Gibby Haynes (Butthole Surfers) and Sonic Boom (Spacemen 3/Spectrum). In 2011, their first effort for Sacred Bones, Hazed Dream traded in the synthe­sizer space-outs and raga rumbles, and delivered a record of sunburned psych pop, awash in warm tones and blues damaged songwriting.

The album artwork is by former 13th Floor Eleva­tors songwriter and artist Powell St. John. There will also be a limited value-add covers 7″ available at most retail outlets, containing the Ills’ takes on The Godz’ “Radar Eyes” and private press psych pop obscurity Cosmic Michaels’ “Cosmic Michael Theme”
