Psycroptic Issue Album Update, U.S. Tour Dates
May 21, 2010
Tasmania's technical death metallers Psycroptic are currently hard at work on writting material for their follow up to their Nuclear Blast Records debut 'Ob(Servant)'. The band will be writing the new record right up until their US tour with Egyptian themed deathers Nile, the ancient Roman themed arsenal Ex Deo, Norwegian extreme metallers Keep Of Kalessin, and brutal death grinders Pathology.

States guitarist Joe Haley:

"We're half way through the writing process for the new Psycroptic album, and everything is going great. The songs are coming together really naturally - nothing sounds forced, and we're really excited to start recording this one. The material is the strongest and most memorable we have written .I know every band says this but if it wasn't true there wouldn't be a point in us recording it! The Demoing process will begin in the next few weeks. We hope to have everything finished up before we head out on the last touring for 'Ob(Servant)'.

Which brings us to the other news we have - we'll be supporting Nile through the US later this year. We're really happy to be have been extended the invitation to tour with Nile once again - they are an amazing band, and are a pleasure to tour with."

Biography
YEAR FORMED: 1999
HOME TOWN: Hobart, Tasmania
MEMBERS:
Jason Peppiatt - Vocals
Cameron Grant - Bass
Joe Haley - Guitars
Dave Haley - Drums

Without an alignment to any particular style, sound or scene, Psycroptic incorporate many elements of music to capture a sound that is uniquely their own. Having released their 3rd album Symbols of failure in 2006, Psycroptic undertook their most extensive international touring, firmly making their mark on the worldwide metal community.

Formed in Hobart, Tasmania in 1999 with members Joe Haley (Guitars), Cameron Grant (Bass), Matthew Chalk (Vocals), and David Haley (Drums), Psycroptic wrote intensively for the months following their formation, crafting the material for the debut album The Isle of Disenchantment. This album was self released in January 2001 to overwhelming response from the metal underground which helped spread the Psycroptic name all around the world. In support of this release shows around Australia were played across Australia, earning themselves many new fans.

Much was quiet on the live front in 2002, due to the decision to work hard on material for the second album The scepter of the ancients. Recording started late in 2002, with the final touches being added in early 2003. Again self financed, a suitable international licensing agreement was reached with US label Unique Leader which allowed many new people to hear Psycroptic for the first time.

Extensive touring around Australia was undertaken is support of the album, which included the national support slot for Incantation as well as appearances on well known metal fests such as Bloodlust and Metal for the Brain. New material began to take shape throughout early 2004, as well as touring with label mates Deeds of Flesh across Australia in July. Following this tour a 23 date European tour was undertaken with Dismember exposing the band to many new fans. Unexpectedly original vocalist Matthew chose not to tour, which meant searching for a fill in at short notice. Jason Peppiatt rose to the task, perfecting 8 songs in a short amount of time proving he was a talented and dedicated musician.

Following the European tour, several shows were played with Matthew returning on vocals. However, ongoing disharmony and tensions resulted in the rest of the band asking Matthew to leave in March 2005. In April 2005, Jason was asked to join Psycroptic. Jason beyond proved himself as a vocalist to enthusiastic Australian audiences when the band toured with Hate Eternal on their June Australian tour.

Symbols of Failure was released in February 2006, and followed up the release with several Australian nation tour and 2 european tours in support of the album, with some of metals biggest names: Cannibal Corpse, Deicide, Nile, Kataklsm and Behemoth. Willowtip Records re-released Symbols of Failure for the North American market in late 2007, and the band will tour this region for the first time in 2008.

Psycroptic are now hard at work writing the follow up to "Symbols of failure".
