Bradford-based quartet to release new LP on the new in-house label from Psycho Las Vegas Festival… Psycho Waxx!!!

Formed in Bradford in the summer of 2016, Psychlona have fast become one of the UK’s most coveted heavy psych rock bands.

Stealing influence from punk; the Palm Desert scene and 60s/70s psychedelia, two chapters deep into their cosmic journey (following 2018’s »Mojo Rising« and 2020’s »Venus Skytrip«), their highly anticipated third is on the horizon and could well be their most electrifying yet.

Teaming up with Psycho Waxx, the in-house label of Psycho Las Vegas Festival – America’s leading and legendary weekend of rock ‘n’ roll debauchery; matchless curation and aural attitude – Psychlona have well and truly found their spiritual home.

Arriving next month, »Palo Verde« is their third studio album of original material and Psycho Waxx’s first, following on from their inaugural release, »Löve Me Förever: A Tribute To Motörhead«; a compilation that featured contributions from the likes of Phil Anselmo, Nick Oliveri, High On Fire, EyeHateGod, and many more.

Low-slung and leaning into that desert groove, »Palo Verde« is a time machine where guitars traverse the cosmos and reproduce the vibrations of rock’s most decadent decade. Steeped in subculture, sea change and profound sonic transformation, from the proto-metal of the late 60s, “Kiss-mania” and headlong into the heaviness of Judas Priest and Black Sabbath, Psychlona arrive with new single, »1975«:

“The video was shot under the masterful direction of Sam Drake,” explains guitarist, Dave Wainfor. “He really brings us all back to a time when distraction was never devoid of human connection. When rockers were good to each other, and music reigned supreme!”

Having appeared at festivals across the world the band is confirmed to play the next instalment of Psycho Las Vegas, Sonic Blast Festival in Portugal and a full Western US tour in 2022 (see dates below).

Psychlona’s »Palo Verde« is released 19th August with vinyl pre-orders for the “Galaxy” variant – limited to 700 copies – available exclusively here at Psycho Waxx.

Tour dates:
13/8 – Sonic Blast Festival – Viana Do Castelo, Portugal
