The self-titled debut album from MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE, a collaboration between Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Buried at Sea’s Sanford Parker, is now available through the Neurot Recordings Store. 

Purchase Mirrors for Psychic Warfare CDs, LPs and digital downloads HERE


The band’s album is also streaming in its entirety via Revolver Magazine. Listen HERE

The five songs that comprise Mirrors For Psychic Warfare lurch and pulsate across a sullen, desolate landscape with an almost curious obsessiveness. And while Mirrors For Psychic Warfare may remind some of the best work on the classic Cold Meat Industry label, there is enough familiar Kelly/Parker-isms scattered throughout to keep the album stimulating. It is a work with more in common with a fever or a fitful wraith than a record.

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare was realized and recorded by both Kelly and Parker at Actual 13 Studio and Hypercube respectively over the course of 2015. The record was mixed and mastered by Parker and is available in CD, vinyl and digital formats.

This is not the first occasion where Kelly and Parker have joined forces. The two work together in Corrections House, a project that also features the talents of Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, and Bruce Lamont of Yakuza, and where Corrections House seem hell-bent on impersonal bludgeon and unrestrained panic, the pair’s latest project — MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE — is far more restrained.

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE is the latest collaboration between Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker. The band’s unsettling, soon-to-be-issued self-titled debut is the sonic manifestation of insomnia, complete with the tossing, turning, and perennial dread that comes with facing another shabby daylight.

Neurosis’ SCOTT KELLY Announces Week-Long String Of Solo Dates Accompanied By Multi-Instrumentalist/Backing Vocalist John Judkins (Rwake); New Three-Song EP Streaming At Cvlt Nation

[Photo by William Lacalmontie]
Neurosis’ SCOTT KELLY will bring his signature acoustic odes of pain, reflection and redemption to stages again later this month on a week-long run of solo dates. Set to begin on February 23rd in Nashville, Tennessee and run through February 29th in Shreveport, Louisiana, KELLY will be performing material predominantly from his starkly minimalist The Wake full-length as well as his recently issued three-song EP, Push Me On To The Sun. KELLY will be accompanied by multi-instrumentalist and backing vocalist John Judkins of Rwake. See confirmed dates and venues below. 

In related news, SCOTT KELLY recently released a three-song EP entitled Push Me On To The Sun available now through My Proud Mountain and currently streaming in full at Cvlt Nation who issues of the poignant offering, “This record is soul music at the highest level, meaning that Scott bares all of his emotion, and that is what makes the songs so powerful. The confidence that he unleashes in his songs make this some of the best happy music clothed in reality you might hear this year. When I hear him sing that he got his teeth kicked in on San Pablo Ave and had a gun put to his head, it’s not just about the violence, but also where he had put himself during that part of his life.”


Hear Push Me On To The Sun at THIS LOCATION.

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE Featuring Neurosis’ Scott Kelly And Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker To Release Self-Titled Debut Via Neurot Recordings

Scott Kelly (Neurosis) and producer/engineer/sonic warlord Sanford Parker (Buried At Sea) are restless. This inquietude has culminated in another collaboration. The two work together in Corrections House, a project that also features the talents of Mike IX Williams of Eyehategod, and Bruce Lamont of Yakuza. While Corrections House seem hell-bent on impersonal bludgeon and unfettered terror, the pair’s latest project -- MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE -- is far more restrained.

The band's haunting self-titled debut is the sonic manifestation of insomnia, complete with the tossing, the turning, and the perennial dread that comes with facing another shabby daylight. The five songs lurch and pulsate across a desolate landscape with an almost curious obsessiveness. While Mirrors For Psychic Warfare may remind some of the best work on the classic Cold Meat Industry label, there is enough familiar Kelly/Parker-isms scattered throughout to keep the album stimulating. It is a work with more in common with a fever or a fitful wraith than a record.

Mirrors For Psychic Warfare was realized and recorded by both Kelly and Parker at Actual 13 Studio and Hypercube respectively over the course of 2015. The record was mixed and mastered by Parker and will see release this Spring via Neurot Recordings.

NEUROSIS To Enter The Studio; Band Adds Third San Francisco Thirtieth Anniversary Performance And Additional Euro Festival Tour


Passing their three decade mark this month, NEUROSIS has confirmed that the band will be returning to Electrical Audio in Chicago with engineer Steve Albini on December 27th to record their forthcoming brand new LP, their follow up to 2012's Honor Found In Decay. Additional details on the album and its approximate release in 2016 will be revealed in the early months of the year.

NEUROSIS will celebrate their thirty-year milestone with a series of performances where they will deliver a massive two-hour set list, invoking material spanning their entire recorded lineage, from 1987’s Pain Of Mind through 2012’s Honor Found In Decay, with varied set lists at each event. These sets will span the band’s entire career, showcasing the comprehensive evolution, from their primitive beginnings into the seminal, epic outfit of today, as the band’s ever evolving, sonic palette has become a genre-defying template for underground music over the last three decades, avoiding genre classification.

NEUROSIS has added a third show at the Regency Ballroom in their origin of San Francisco in March. The newly-confirmed third show will take place on Sunday, March 6th, at the Regency Ballroom. NEUROSIS has selected special opening acts to open this show, today confirming the participation of longtime Detroit hardcore punk legends, Negative Approach, as well as extremely influential Salem-based punk/metal experimenters, Converge. Tickets for the March 6th show will go on sale January 6th at 10 am PST. The previously announced show March 3rd with support from Sleep and March 4th with support from Shellac have both sold out.

The following month, NEUROSIS will headline two nights at the mighty Roadburn Festival in Holland, April 16th and 17th, again bringing their thirtieth anniversary sets to fans, with those shows led by special solo performances by guitarist/vocalists SCOTT KELLY and STEVE VON TILL together on April 15th.

NEUROSIS has also announced an additional set of European tour dates separate from the thirtieth anniversary performances, returning to the European continent for a run of festival performances in August, including Festa Radio Onda D'Urto in Italy, Oya Festival in Norway, Motocultor Festival in France and Amplifest in Portugal.
