Originally formed by four schoolmates, the band now comprises Steve Pye (lead vocals and guitars), Jamie (Jay) Bellingham, Joe Walsh (drums), Ben Nixon (keys and synthesisers) and Jamie Cartlidge (rhythm guitar and vocals).

Born, bred and based in Stoke-on-Trent in the West Midlands, an area with a strong working class ethic and the self styled “hub of Northern Soul”, Psyence have built their reputation from their hard working DIY ethic and endless touring.

Their thundering self-titled debut album was released in August 2019 to critical aclaim. Uber Rock said “If the Foo Fighters managed to be impregnated by Pink Floyd and begot music producing offspring, they would probably sound something along the lines of Psyence. A strong release for a debut.”

Developing a fearsome reputation for their incendiary live shows, the band have become firm favourites at the  Shiiine On  Festivals (and  Cruise), as well as having performed at  Kendall Calling, Tramlines, and  Festival No 6  Festivals in the UK, amongst others. 

Psyence have also supported notable rising tastemaker acts including Manchester-based alt-rock band, The Blinders, Australian rock band, Psychedelic Porn Crumpets, in addition to Saint Agnes and Warmduscher.

They were signed to Primary Talent International live booking agency earlier in the year and are confirmed to play Hit The North Festival 2020 in October.
