MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE are pretty much the dream team when it comes to dark, experimental industrial. Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker join forces to craft hypnotic industrial, employing mechanical percussion, joyless vocals, and bursts of noise in such a way that it could only be MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE playing. I See What I Became shines because of its diversity: bits of trip-hop and ambient music keep each song sounding different, adding uncomfortable psychedelia to an album that brims with dystopian undertones.” — Decibel

MIRRORS FOR PSYCHIC WARFARE — featuring Neurosis’ Scott Kelly and Buried At Sea’s Sanford Parker — will kick off a European tour next month. The journey begins November 6th and runs through November 24th with additional shows to be announced in the coming weeks. See all confirmed dates below.

The band will be touring in support of their I See What I Became, recently issued via Neurot Recordings. Produced by Seward Fairbury (Corrections House) and Negative Soldier, mastered by Collin Jordan (Eyehategod, Indian, Wovenhand, Voivod), with decibel manipulation by Dave French (Brothers Of The Sonic Cloth, The Anunnaki), the industrial duo’s follow-up to 2016’s critically-lauded, self-titled debut spews eight bile-rich pieces of unsettling audio devastation

“…a trip-hop-influenced track that dances around noise, power electronics, drum and bass and more, flirting with the dark aesthetics of Nick Cave, Aphex Twin, and early Tricky, creating for a fascinating bed for the vocals of Scott Kelly.” – Revolver on “Crooked Teeth”

“A noirish, sinister vibe slithers beneath all eight tracks on the album. Sparse, Godflesh-inspired austerity is the canvas with flourishes atop that paint a bleak, opaque picture. This manifests itself in the sneaky synth patterns and creaky samples, as well as Kelly’s hypnotizing nearly whispered vocals. It sounds like despair, but by the time he is intoning, ‘I need your heart to pump my blood’ on album closer, ‘Coward Heat,’ it seems as if he has resigned to his fate and looks for light in the darkness. The transition is as subtle as it is profound.” – New Noise

“Far from the clarity of enlightenment the title may suggests, I See What I Became conveys a wallowing in darkness and a sense of resignation, hollowed out, nihilistic. It’s a heavy grind that wears you down, and by the end, I feel drained. I see nothing, and I feel numb.” – Aural Aggravation

“…an unsettling walk through an industrial underbelly. The tracks reek of menace and decay with all the gravitas of Killing Joke and the swirling melody of Fields Of The Nephilim. This is not bombast, this is the hypnotism of a serpent that will coil itself around you and crush your ribs before you can scream.” – Ave Noctum
