ECSTATIC VISION Reveals ‘For The Masses’ Album; BRANT BJORK US Tour Support/EU Tour

Article By: Pat ‘Riot’ Whitaker ‡ Edited By: Leanne Ridgeway

Philadelphia’s fuzz-infused, heavy psych-rock band ECSTATIC VISION announces the release of their new album, For The Masses‘, on September 20th via Heavy Psych Sounds Records.

The highly anticipated follow-up to 2017’s ‘Raw Rock Fury‘ and 2015’s ‘Sonic Praise‘ was recorded at Retro City Studios in Philadelphia with Joe Boldizar. Mixed and mastered by Tim Green (Earthless, Sebadoh, Melvins) in Grass Valley, CA. ‘For The Masses‘ is more than just a title… it is an assurance to fans.

The music of ECSTATIC VISION is a hybrid blend of rich, synth enhanced psychedelia with funk vibes, flavors of krautrock, and acid punk garage rock. Listen to two new songs, “Shut Up And Drive” and “Grasping The Void” here today. They are accompanied by the ‘For The Masses‘ album artwork and tracklist; find pre-order at the following links:
