Philadelphia’s finest phenoms for truly heavy psychedelia, ECSTATIC VISION, have just dropped a new official video for the song “Troublemaker“.

The track hails from the band’s recent Heavy Psych Sounds release, Under The Influence (out now). The album is a collection of six raw, fuzzy, psychedelic slabs of cosmic rock, covering tracks by some of the band’s biggest influences including Hawkwind, MC5, Zam Rock and others.

One of those others is the 1974 Zam Rock classic from Chrissy Zebby Tembo & The Ngozi Family, “Troublemaker“. Check it out via the new visualizer below, you can find Under The Influence available for purchase HERE.


ECSTATIC VISION are on the verge of embarking on a string of U.S. live dates this week prior to launching a European tour in June. The band will be appearing at several festivals too, ones like Stoned & Dusted, Rock In Bourlon, Stick & Stone Fest, Woodrock, RodellusPietra Sonica Fest 10 and Days Of Darkness 2018.
