UK lysergic proto-metal trio Josiah sign to Heavy Psych Sounds booking roster!

UK lysergic proto-metal band Josiah has just signed to Heavy Psych Sounds booking roster.

Heavy Psych Sounds comments: “We are so stoked to announce that the legendary UK power trio Josiah is now part of the Heavy Psych Sounds booking roster!!!

The band is available for summer festivals and will do an European Tour in september!! If you want to have them in your city write to”


The UK power trio have been making lysergic proto-metal since 2000. Dressing the bare bones of hard rock with a coat of acid drenched flesh. A dark sound, cloaked in banshee-like cries, thunderous rhythms and psychedelic guitar offerings.

Their sonic reputation has been built upon the releases »Out Of The First Rays« in 2001 followed by the full-length albums »Josiah« (2002), »Into The Outside« (2004) and »No Time« (2007). By the time »Procession« was released in 2009, they had established themselves as a great live act and pushers of the heavy.

In 2021 Heavy Psych Sounds Records reissued the 20th anniversary edition of »Out Of The First Rays« and in 2022 the band returned to the scene with a new line up, new album »We Lay On Cold Stone« (for Blues Funeral Recordings) and the reissue of their entire back catalog by Heavy Psych Sounds Records.

Josiah is:
Mathew Bethancourt – Guitar / Vocals
DC Lockton – Drums
Jack Dickinson – Bass / Backing Vocals

Bojan Bidovc // music enthusiast, promoter, misanthrop and sometimes a journalist as well
