PSYCHE

 

Psyche is a Canadian dark synthpop band, now based in Germany. Psyche was formed by brothers Darrin and Stephen Hussin Edmonton, Alberta, named after the B-Side of Killing Joke’s Wardance single as well as being chosen for the meaning of the word. The band’s debut performance was on December 13, 1982, with Dwayne Goettel on additional keyboards. During this period, Psyche was known for their bizarre live shows wherein Darrin performed nude while talk-singing and shouting over the music.

In 1986 was released album “Unveiling the Secret”. In 1989 was released album “The Influence”

In 1996 Anders Kurenbach joining as a new member. The first single release was “You Ran Away” with a cover version of Goodbye Horses by Q Lazzarus as the B-Side.
After playing for the first time in Oslo, Norway and a return to Sweden, Psyche released a live video featuring highlights from their Strange Romance Tour. 1998 saw the beginning of a new record label partnership, and in June of that year Psyche released their eighth official album on the “Strange Ways”

At the beginning of 2000, Psyche signed to Artoffact Records of Toronto, Canada. The specially-compiled release of Misguided Angels contained material from 1983 through 2000 as a re-introduction of Psyche back on their original continent. The new line-up made its debut on Accession Records with the single “Sanctuary” released in April 2001.

“The 11th Hour” Psyche’s 11th album, was released through Accession Records in Europe, Metropolis Records in North America, and Irond Records in Russia making it the widest release in the band’s history. Following The 11th Hour, Psyche shifted their focus to touring rather than recording, playing shows and festivals across Europe, North and South America, and South Africa.

In July 2016, the first three albums “Insomnia Theatre”(1985), “Unveiling The Secret”(1986/1987), and “Mystery Hotel”(1988) are digitally remastered and re-released as double albums including archival bonus tracks, plus related singles, and mixes.
