Psych-pop Trio PSYCHIC LINES Announce 5th Studio Album 'SUNSET ON SUNSET'

PSYCHIC LINES Sunset on Sunset album cover
Today, Brooklyn-based psych-pop trio Psychic Lines announces their fifth studio album SUNSET ON SUNSET due out August 23 and available for pre-order now. Alongside the announcement, the band shares bright, bouncy track and colorful, hand-drawn video "Mind Control" out now. On June 22, the band will celebrate the new music with a free show at Brooklyn's Mama Tried–find more information here. 

SUNSET ON SUNSET sounds unlike any previous Psychic Lines release. Lead singer-songwriter Phil Jacob shares, "Lyrically, the album touches on all the delusions we cling to. They may give us hope and spur us on but set us up for disappointment when we inevitably discover that the real world doesn't quite measure up. Many of these delusions are shaped by our lifelong immersion in social media, film and television." The LP delves into escapism and the stories we tell ourselves to make sense of the surrounding fast-paced world. Jacob continues, "In order to bridge this reality gap, we further deceive ourselves and others, seeking escape in the same stories and mythologies that caused our faulty expectations in the first place." These deceptions and coping mechanisms form a backdrop for the darkly surrealistic, yet wryly humorous collection of tunes on this album.

A Quiet Place: Day One Featurettes

A Quiet Place Day One Final Poster

Horror fans love a good monster movie, especially when the concept and creature design is innovative, not derivative, and altogether terrifying. We've already had two visits to this alternate Earth invaded by horrifically bloodthirsty beasts, triggered to attack by the slightest sound, adding an additional layer of impending doom at all times. Now, Paramount takes us back to day one and the first attacks, hopefully to reveal some insight into the monster's origins while playing out the speedy disintegration of society as we knew it. I LOVE A GOOD APOCALYPSE!! The June 28th release date is not far off, so Paramount has sent over some chaotic (and adorable) featurettes to ignite your anticipation and get your blood pumping!

Mama Doom Bleeding Garden
Horror Inspired, MAMA DOOM proudly premieres their latest "Bleeding Garden" video with  OUTBURN.COM.  Drummer Anne Terror says "We had such a blast making this video. Another DIY collaboration with (my very own) Gratuitous Productions. We dug a little deeper into using more post production tools with editing stop motion and we were then able to achieve some of the twitchier skeletal sequences throughout. Also, by using overlays and multiple video images concurrently allowed us to add a little more texture and depth too. Paying homage to the A Giallo/Argento approach our use of alternative lighting let the intensity build along with the track which had a crescendo effect. All in all, we were pretty stoked with how the whole thing came together."

However, a drunken decision to cast a spell from her favorite romance novel unleashes unforeseen consequences as she accidentally summons a brooding demon boyfriend, Metice. Now, Rayna must navigate the challenges of severing the magical bond with Metice if she ever hopes to regain her normal life.
