Psychic Teens

Psychic Teens Opening for Publicist UK & Dälek at JB's Aug. 26

Purveyors of the underworld, Psychic Teens, have been hidden away working on their third full-length album. Tonight, they'll crawl up from the undebelly of Philly's DIY scene to shred the stage of Johnny Brenda's. Psychic Teens will be opening for Publicist UK, who just released their first LP, Forgive Yourself, last week via revered local label Relapse Records. Also along for the ride are New Jersey experimental hip-hop visionaries Dälek. This will not be your ordinary, homogenous evening of music. Johnny Brenda's, 1201 N. Frankford Ave., 9pm, $12, 21+ - Alexis V.


Fight Amp/KEN mode Record Release Tour at KFN June 19

The power trio of Fight Amp celebrates the release of their new record Constantly Off as its dual record release tour with Winnipeg’s KEN mode (who dropped their album, Success, earlier this week) rolls into Kung Fu Necktie. Constantly Off maintains an undeniable heaviness; however, the music moves with a distinct purpose. The band displays a ferocity but with an ear toward control. With that aim in mind, the combustible force, chainsaw-menacing guitars, thick, thudding, eerie bass and percussion pounces in a zooming in of immediacy. All that said, while fusing sludgy riff and rhythm combinations with vocals that can snarl without losing sight of melody. Fight Amp can knock you out, but has trained to go the distance. Ominously pursuing post-punk trio Psychic Teens opens the show, leaving the door cracked and daring you to look inside. Kung Fu Necktie, 1250 N. Front St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita


Psychic Teens Opening for Nervosas at Great Indoors April 10

A healthy supply of menace buzzes through you while listening to Psychic Teens, demonstrating a ravenous street-lurking mode that escalates the suspense around every poorly lit street corner while conjuring up images of gloomy dungeons in classic horror flicks. Those ominous tones of heart rattling bass/drum and eerie slivers of guitar illustrate a haunting setting in which Larry Ragone's commanding baritone serves as a guide. The dance inducing synth-driven propulsions of Decade and the sprinting punk rock of Dark Thoughts help to set the stage at the Great Indoors for the fully-loaded post-punk of Columbus, Ohio’s Nervosas, whose unrelenting clean bursts of intertwined instrumentations tie you in. Great Indoors, (Please contact one of the acts or venue for more info.), 7pm, $5, All Ages - Michael Colavita


Psychic Teens & Hound Release Show at Boot & Saddle Nov. 7

The prospects for tonight’s SRA Records-oriented dual release show at Boot & Saddle are righteous. "Face," one-side of tormenting psych-death rockers Psychic Teens, is a menacing energetic tune littered with jagged, attacking instrumentations and a dose of commanding growl driven vocals that will crawl into your ear waves in a hauntingly pleasant manner. The heavy-footed pedal to the floor classic metal with garage grit of Perry Shall, Colin Mcginus and Chris Wilson combine as a bona fide rocking force, as Hound, and this show will also serve as the record release for their debut LP Out of Time. The show will also feature renowned hardcore outfit Flag Of Democracy, a.k.a. F.O.D., and the high-speed intensity of Spectrum Disorder. Be prepared for Boot & Saddle to rain sweat and ooze with unrelenting, raucous intensity. In other words, be there. Boot & Saddle, 1131 S. Broad St., 8pm, $10, 21+ - Michael Colavita

New Track: "Face" - Psychic Teens

We're excited to share a new track with you from Psychic Teens. It certainly has been a while since we've heard from the post-punk power trio, and "Face" doesn't disappoint with its combustible guitar licks and Larry Ragone's ominously macabre diction. The single is the A-side to the forthcoming 7" that the group will drop on November 7 via Reptilian Records. They'll also have a big release show that same evening at Boot & Saddle with legendary hardcore outfit F.O.D., a.k.a. Flag of Democracy, and Hound, who will also be celebrating their new album with SRA Records.
