With their unique brand of alternative rock, fronted by a charismatic singer, two powerful guitars and a tight rhythm section, Psycho-Path is a formidable force live on stage. No pretention - eclectic, honest, sweaty, sexy and very guitar-laden.
Together since 1993, Psycho-Path have gained a lot of respect on the scene. Even from such prolific artists as Scott McCloud, Dälek, Josh Homme and many more.
Touring all over Europe and with 4 full length albums (with the 5th one coming out in March 2008), this is a band with experience.
In July 2007, the band entered the studio with producer Bobby MacIntyre (ex- member of The Twilight Singers, also worked with Bad Brains, Jimmy Girl, Lucinda Williams, Mark Lanegan…) to record their fifth full-length album.
Also featuring a special guest on the back vocals, on the epic ‘Bekkognition’ – Scott Bennett (Brian Wilson’s band, also worked with Flaming Lips, Filter, The Smashing Pumpkins, Liz Phair, The Twilight Singers…).
