Noise Rock pioneers, Eric Paul (Arab On Radar, Chinese Stars), Paul Vieira (Chinese Stars, Doomsday Student), and Nathan Joyner (Some Girls, All Leather,), Charles Ovett venture through uncharted territory with the Psychic Graveyard. Nathan Joyner’s grinding synths and “found sound” buries the seed of each song deep into the fertile ground - while Paul Vieira’s manic, fuzzed-out guitars, Ovett's bombastic drumming, and Eric Paul’s obsessive lyrics shower the proceedings with equal parts sunshine and rain.

The band has released three albums, Loud As Laughter (Skin Graft), A Bluebird Vacation, and Veins Feel Stange (Deathbomb Arc), and two EPs, The Next World (Skin Graft) + Mouths (Deathbomb Arc), and most recently, a split LP with U.S.A. Nails (Box Records/Skin Graft Records). According to the band, writing is an unusual process for them. San Diego-based Joyner sends files filled with the skeletons of songs to Vieira and Paul in Providence, Rhode Island, and Ovett in Charlotte, NC. The three members add their parts, and then the songs undergo an arduous, back and forth until all the members agree on the final version. The distance of the members and the anomalous approach to writing resulted in a diverse, yet coherent recordings, that pick up and drop off the listener at dramatically different places. Like nerve endings spliced and sewn back together, the process spawned a whole new auditory system - which serves as the infrastructure for Psychic Graveyard.
