SPB exclusive: Cyberplasm - The Psychic Hologram

Cyberplasm - The Psychic Hologram

Coming on June 21, Cyberplasm will release a new LP to the world titled The Psychic Hologram.

The band pulls from a diverse influence, mixing noise punk guitars, atmospheric drum processors, and furiously shouted vocals for a blistering belt of hardcore that’s both perfectly suited to the genre while simultaneously destroying it.

The band will be on tour this fall in support of the new record. Pre-orders are available from Iron Lung.

Give a listen to the 11-song record here:

Neurosis & Jarboe: remastered & reissued

Neurosis & Jarboe: remastered & reissued

Neurosis & Jarboe

Originally released 16 years ago (2003), the collaboration between Neurosis & Jarboe will be reissued on August 2 on Neurot Recordings. Fully remasted with all new artwork from Aaron Turner, it will be the album's first time on vinyl, also releasing on CD and digital formats.

Steve Von Till of Neurosis explains:

Bob Weston [Chicago Mastering Service, and member of Shellac] worked closely with Noah [Landis, NEUROSIS] on making these new versions sound as good as the possibly can. Noah has the most trained critical ear for fidelity out of all of us being an engineer himself. We recorded this ourselves with consumer level Pro Tools back then, in order to be able to experiment at home in getting different sounds and writing spontaneously. The technology has come a long way since then and we thought we could run it through better digital to analog conversion and trusted Bob Weston to be able to bring out the best in it... This new mastered version is a bit more open, with a better stereo image, and better final EQ treatment.

Neurosis will be on tour throughout the summer, playing dates in Europe and the USA.
