PSYCROPTIC To Enter Studio Next Month

Drummer Dave Haley of Tasmania's technical death metallers PSYCROPTIC has issued the following update:

"Well, 2010 was a pretty busy year for PSYCROPTIC. We released our first-ever DVD in early 2010 and toured Australia with DECAPITATED to promote the release. We played China and Inner Mongolia; we were the first Western band to play the city of HoHot in Inner Mongolia; crazy stuff! We toured Europe with our close friends CEPHALIC CARNAGE and rounded out the year with a U.S. tour with NILE.

"In between all of this we were hard at work writing our new album, which we're happy to say is fully written. It's as yet untitled, but we are throwing a few names around. We start tracking the drums on February 14th at Red Planet Studios, and once completed we will be moving to Joe's [Haley; PSYCROPTIC guitarist] studio to complete all the rest of the recording. We'll be taking our time on this one, as we have felt a little rushed in the past... The material is great so we want to ensure the recording matches. We'll post studio progress reports to keep everyone updated.

"Look out for the new album later this year!!"

Char Tupper of conducted an interview with Dave Haley on November 12, 2010 in Seattle, Washington during PSYCROPTIC's U.S. tour with NILE, EX DEO and KEEP OF KALESSIN. You can watch the chat below.

PSYCROPTIC's latest album, "Ob(Servant)", was released in Europe on September 26, 2008 and in North America on October 14, 2008 via Nuclear Blast Records. The follow-up to 2006's "Symbols of Failure" was mixed and mastered by former MACHINE HEAD and SOULFLY guitarist Logan Mader (DIVINE HERESY, GOJIRA) and was recorded once again by guitarist Joe Haley.
