Scott Kelly is heading back to Europe to introduce his new project Mirrors for Psychic Warfare.

Mirrors for Psychic Warfare is Scott Kelly (founding member of Neurosis, Corrections House, Shrinebuilder, The Road Home, Blood Caldera, River Of Madness, Tribes Of Neurot, and co-owner of Neurot Recordings) and Sanford Parker (Minsk, Buried at Sea, Nachtmystium).

Sanford Parker is a producer, recording engineer and musician from Chicago, IL. Sanford is known from bands like Minsk, Twilight and Nachtmystium and nowadays is part of Corrections House and Buried at Sea. As an engineer he worked for bands like Eyehategod, Woven Hand and Voivod over the last two years - just to name a few.

Scott Kelly about the new project:
Mirrors for Psychic Warfare is an experiment in noise, silence, restraint and aggression in all shapes and forms. The concept will be first performed to a live audience in late February-early March of 2015 on European soil. There will be a 7" record "The Oracles Hex" released by My Proud Mountain to coincide with this tour. I am very much looking forward to the open minds that will allow this in.”

Sanford Parker will also support the show with his solo project Two from the Eye
"Two from the Eye is a visceral blend of heavy rhythms, atmospheric drones and dense psychedelic layers. Debuting live in Europe this spring with an album currently in the works. This music is written with a soul crushing intent.“

Steve Von Till Reveals Details of an Astonishing New Solo Album, 'A Life Unto Itself,' Upcoming on Neurot Recordings in May

The title doesn't quite say it all, but it says some of it: A Life Unto Itself is as much the name of Steve Von Till's fourth solo album as it is the perfect description for the 25-plus years he's spent forging, with his brothers, the incomparable musical force that is Neurosis—not to mention the numerous sonic tapestries he's woven with Tribes Of Neurot and under his alter ego Harvestman. You can hear that rich musical history, and all the life experience that goes with it, on his new solo album A Life Unto Itself – and this album goes deeper still.

Where Steve Von Till's previous solo recordings took on a more traditional approach with a respectful nod toward American and European folk music, A Life Unto Itself expands and ventures into compelling uncharted territory for its maker. Steve Von Till's weathered, distinctive voice and sparse acoustic guitar provides a foundation, but a much wider variety of sonic textures are presented here. Bold and ambitious arrangements weave vintage synth, sublime strings, percussion, and electric guitars in and out of these unique and expansive songs as Steve Von Till's raspy whisper dives deeply inward and speaks genuinely of visions, memories, and self-reflection in a way that feels both seasoned and exposed.

A Life Unto Itself is a powerful and evocative collection of beautiful Celtic balladry, haunting folk songs, dark psychedelia and expansive Americana, transporting one to the very heart and soul of its creator. If you allow yourself to fully submit to it, abandoning all preconceptions, the rewards can be magnificent.
