PSYCHOTIC WALTZ Announce Comprehensive Back Catalogue Reissue Campaign

After having successfully released their 5th studio album The God-Shaped Void in 2020 via InsideOutMusic, US progressive metal pioneers and innovators Psychotic Waltz are now finally making their entire high-quality catalogue available again on LP/CD formats worldwide via the label too.

Across two chapters of reissues with street dates in May & July 2024, the band’s classic first four albums – A Social Grace (1990), Into The Everflow (1992), Mosquito (1994, now with new artwork by Travis Smith) and Bleeding (1996) – will be available newly remastered by Patrick W. Engel / Temple Of Disharmony as 2CD Digipaks with tons of rare or previously unreleased bonus material as well as expanded layouts.

The main albums will additionally be re-issued as Ltd. Gatefold coloured LP editions on 180g vinyl. An additional demo rarities compilation (of some of the bonus material) entitled To Chase The Stars (Demos 1987 - 1989) will also be made available as Ltd. Gatefold 2LP edition, making this re-issue campaign an exciting and indispensable project for both longtime connoisseurs of the band as well as more recent, new-generation members of the ever-growing progressive music community.

Psychotic Waltz checked in with the following comment about this reissue campaign:

“We are not only excited, but also greatly humbled and honored that InsideOutMusic have allowed us to bring forth what we feel are the definitive versions of our first four albums. They sound better than ever, thanks to the meticulous mastering done by Patrick W. Engel, and the 2CD editions each feature a treasure trove of extras, most of which you probably never heard before now – or if you did, those tape-traded versions didn’t sound nearly this good. And if you’re more of a vinyl person, having all our early demos compiled on a double-LP set is something we never would have expected when the five of us first started playing together as teenagers nearly 40 years ago under the name of Aslan. May you all have as much fun going through these reissues as we did putting them together.” - Dan, Brian, Ward, Norm and Devon
