|02-18-2012|| ||Wow. It's been a while. We've been laying a bit low, working on our CD, Ontogeny, which will be out this spring. A few shows here and there, mostly nationals, on weekdays, which are tough for people to get out to, but its always a good show. We have another show lined up, a good one, on a weekend, that will be announced very soon. Many of you will like it, as its a national that we've played with before. Should be a packed house, we are looking forward to it. We should also have our CD ready by then, so it will be good for people to finally be able to leave with our music. |
This is also the first post from the new website. A bit cleaner, less reliant on popups for the pages, bigger, bolder, and will improve over time. Our primary focus, however, still remains to be the CD. Stay tuned, we'll keep you posted!
|07-24-2010|| ||Well, the Clubhouse show is now in the books, and it was... well, it went. With our June that was full of out-of-towns, flu's, and whatever else Murphy's law could throw at us that made it difficult to practice, our "tightness" took a hit. As the audience, you may or may not have noticed it, but we certainly did. You may have noticed a few other glitches though that dropped bombs on our opening song, 6P. Most notably, vocal issues lasting a little more than half the song, and a broken bass string that had Matt playing with three strings the entire set. |
Troubles aside, it was still a fun night. Psyphen shirts were everywhere, the crowd was loud and into it, we LOVE that. We want to see you at every show wearing Psyphen gear and making noise! In fact, we are doing something that will be one token of our appreciation for your support. We mentioned that we are currently working on a CD, and that is true, slower than we'd like, but in pursuit. Once ready for production, we will include name mentions of our top supporters in our CD insert! We will attempt to keep track of how many tickets each person has bought and/or sold to make sure we reward our supporters with a mention. So come to our shows and help spread the word and bring others to our shows with you and you will forever be immortalized in Psyphen's debut release!!
Now on to our next live show. On August 7th K&Z Entertainment will present the first annual "Mini Ozzfest", which will feature 10 of Arizona's top local bands at the Marquee Theatre. We will play along with some other big names such as (Sic)monic, The Asylum, and Makeshift Family. Tickets are $10 in advance (you can get the at: https://psyphen.com/catalog/index.php). In support of the show, there will be a radio ad running on 98Kupd during the two weeks prior to the show that will feature our music!!
Just wanted to remind everyone of our recently launched merchandise section were you can buy tickets to our next show, shirts, hats... whatever you want. Possibly the easiest way to get tickets before a show. Place the order, and we will mail the tickets to you. https://psyphen.com/catalog/index.php
Thanks again, and weâ€™ll see you at the show!!!
|07-03-2010|| ||Welcome to the first official Psyphen email newsletter. As we look to communicate a bit more with those who are interested, email is one form we will likely be using. Though it wonâ€™t typically be more than once a month or so, we will use this medium to keep you connected and informed on all things Psyphen.
As you may know, weâ€™re constantly working on new material. June was a rough month for us, as we were out of town, battling illness, and melting in the sun. This has even had us on the verge of going for each others throats, but we still carry on. In doing so, our goal is to have a new song with each show we do. Though that wonâ€™t be feasible for every show, it is our goal and we try to stick to it. There is a balance between making progress and rushing it. If we feel we are rushing it or simply donâ€™t have enough time between scheduled shows, a new song wonâ€™t be introduced. The good (or bad) news is, we only have a certain amount of time for our set and with each new song added we must remove one from our setlist. All of our songs will be rotated with each show, which we particularly like, as it makes for interesting change.
Speaking of next shows, our upcoming show on July 16 at the Clubhouse in Tempe looks to be a good one. We are playing with some really good bands - bands that we havenâ€™t played with before, including Laconic, Ashes for Erin, and Comfort for Change. We are scheduled to go on at 8pm and do a 25 minute set. In addition, we have another show in the works that we will announce shortly. With it, we will be returning to a venue weâ€™ve played before but on a much larger scale, and many more bands. The show will be another K&Z Entertainment event which promises to be big. Thatâ€™s all the detail for now, we will officially announce the show in two weeks.
Another new item is our online store. Weâ€™ve recently launched a merchandise section of our website were you can buy tickets to our next show, shirts, hats... whatever you want. Check it out when you get a chance: https://psyphen.com/catalog/index.php
Thanks, and weâ€™ll see you at the show!
