New Album Coming: The Cure for Chaos Theory

If you’ve been following us on Twitter or Facebook, you’ll already know that we’ve been working on a new album for quite a while now. If you’re a newsletter subscriber, you’ve been privilege to more information about the project than everyone else and have even heard some preview tracks.

But I think it’s high time we take the shroud off of this.

The Cure for Chaos Theory Album CoverComing in the Fall of 2013, The Cure For Chaos Theory, the latest full-length album from Psycliq. The most ambitious project by band to date, The Cure For Chaos Theory promises to be a unique musical journey through space and time. Right now there are about twenty songs written for the album, with a little over half of those in a nearly-complete state. The album is going to have three distinct “chapters” to it, exploring different musical and thematic aspects of it. We’re taking a much more heavy-electronica path on much of this album, but styles also include driving rock and subtle ambient, all mixed together like you’d expect. There will even be vocals!

I’m pretty excited about how this project is coming out, even if it is turning out to be a huge amount of production work. Much of this material has been a long time coming, but I think it’s really going to be worth the wait.

We don’t have a definite release date yet, but we’re shooting for Fall of 2013 to have it all wrapped up. Once we get things a little further along, we’ll put up a preorder page for everyone. If there’s enough interest, we could even do a short run of special-edition t-shirts and posters to go with the CD release.

Exciting times ahead, friends. Be sure to keep tuned and you may even hear a track preview in the near future…

House of the Rising CD

Originally, I was going to keep House of the Rising Sun a digitalonly product, since I’m continuously told that that’s the future. We’ve sold a few copies that way, sure, but something was just nagging me about it. I finally just admitted that I’m a bit of a curmudgeon and went ahead and put together a physical CD package. Here you go.

These puppies are printed up by CreateSpace, the same company that now handles all of the copies of Results Not Typical. I was pretty happy with how Results came out and decided to give them another go.  (Side note: those of you that picked up the first edition of Results now have something very, very rare, since I’m not planning on printing any more of those myself, probably ever. Wait 30 years before you put it on eBay to really drive up the value.)

Honestly, the print quality isn’t as nice or consistent as a pressed CD, but it is darned close, and there’s no minimum order. In fact, there’s no warehouse of these anywhere! CreateSpace just cranks them out as people place their orders.

So what are you waiting for? Go put them to work! You can even get it in time for Christmas if you order soon.

Speaking of Christmas, work still continues on this year’s free Christmas track, and I’m hoping that it’ll be all put together by the end of the week. It’s turning out to be quite interesting so far. I may have spilled some dubstep on it, too.

Electric Goodies and Physical Platters

I have two cool things today! First off, for those of you who want a physical, made-of-atoms copy of Results Not Typical, the wait is over! You can now order a CD from CDBaby. Now that it’s available there, the distributors should be getting copies of things so that you can also pick it up at Amazon or order it from your local record store.

And of course, for those of you who like your music digitally, you can get it from iTunes, Amazon MP3, bandcamp, eMusic, and a bunch of other places that I don’t have links to. But just go and check your favorite music website, and if they don’t have it yet, ask!

Thing the second: I am pleased to announce the creation of the Electric Goodies Newsletter! With this newsletter, I will periodically be sending out sneak-peaks, demos, snippets, sketches, and other interesting things that will let you see into the inner workings of Psycliq. By and large, this is stuff that won’t be posted on the website or anywhere else, so if you want free MP3s and cool stuff, join today! I’ll even give you a subscription box:
