Psycle-Kill the Machine (Official Lyric Video):
Solid, Hard Driven, Melodic, and Strong are just a few words to describe the music of Psycle. This 4 piece consisting of Front man/Guitarist Seth Salois, Drummer Jay Spyne, Bass player/Vocalist Mike Kaz and Lead Guitarist Joe Nicolazzo are ready for whatever is thrown their way. Joining forces in 2016 Psycle has continued to work on one major thing…writing a better song than the last. Psycle released their EP Surfaces in September 2017 and received amazing reviews, winning 3 awards at the Stone Chrome Radio Awards show for Breakout Band, Vocalist of the Year and Drummer of the Year. Psycle was the only unsigned act to even be nominated. The band continued to push their most recent single “Face the Fire” to #1 status on Radio Vegas Rocks for several weeks and even had a second single “The Road I’m On” come in at #2 at the same time. With the success of Surfaces, Psycle began writing their follow up and have been working for the past year and a half crafting each song for its anticipated release. The guys were able to play several amazing shows opening for BobaflexProspect Hill and playing the main stage at the East Providence Heritage FestivalPsycle has just finished recording their full length follow up album titled Kill the Machine with producer Chris Piquette at No Boundaries Studios

  1. Tell us a little bit about the band and how long you have been together for some of our readers that may not know about the band?

The band has been around for a while but this current lineup has been together since 2016. We put out our first EP in 2017 titled “Surfaces”. We have spent the past 2 years playing shows and writing our new album which will come out this spring.

2.                   What got you into music and what keeps you going night after night playing?

I got into music at an early age but it wasn’t until college that I got into a band. My love of music and creating music has never waivered and will never. Each crowd is a new opportunity to make a difference in peoples lives and if that doesn’t keep you going, I don’t know.

3.                   So, what is new with the band?..New Album out? New Videos?

Our brand-new album “Kill the Machine” will be out early this spring. It is the follow up to our 2017 EP “Surfaces”. We spent about a year and half writing and making sure the songs were treated with care and scrutinized. We wrote 10 songs for the album and decided on 8. We felt that an 8-song album would be a nice follow up to our 4 song EP from 2017. The first single off of the album is the title track. We recorded/mixed/mastered the album with producer Chris Piquette at No Boundaries Studios in North Kingstown RI. We also worked with Chris on our EP “Surfaces”. The first single will drop on March 24 along with our lyric video.

4.                   If you didn’t become a musician, what would you be doing right now?

I would probably be doing something in graphic design or photography.

5.                   What is the weirdest or funniest question you have ever been asked?

We once got asked our favorite bread…you don’t even know how much that answer got dragged out!

6.                   If you can have your fans remember you for one thing, what would that be?

Writing and performing genuine music. We lay it out every performance like we are playing to 100,000 people

7.                   On a scale of one to 2593, How good is your new single compared to your last single? (my attempt at humor, but please still answer)

It’s prob about 2594! We are so excited about this new album. This is the album I waited my whole life to write. That is a testament to the people in this band and how hard we worked to make this album special. The first single “Kill the Machine” is just the appetizer

8.                   What do you feel is the best song you have released to date and why?

I think our best song is called “Long Way Down” off our EP “Surfaces” …. until the new one drops hahahah.


9.                   Do you think you can get any better as a musician/singer? And if so, how would you achieve that?

Always, Always, Always! Only thru hard work and listening to people who know more. Challenging each other in the band to be better and having each other’s back. Honesty in music is a beautiful thing

10.               If you could give your fans one random fact about you that you think they should (or should “not” know) about you what would that be?

I have never had a drop off alcohol or tried a drug in my life. Now that doesn’t mean I don’t know how to have fun; it just means I do all the driving. Nobody minds that!

11.               You’re a new addition to the crayon box. What color would you be and why?

Metallic Silver

12.               Who are you inspired by?

I am very inspired by self-less people. People who give to others in need. People who are willing to be at their best in the worst of times

13.               What’s an average day like for you?

Work, work, work, write, write, write. Then cook, watch movies and do more work for the band

14.               Please discuss how you interact with and respond to fans?

I make myself as accessible as possible and make sure I let people know how grateful I am for being a part of the journey. For every fan, sound guy, tech, promoter, radio host, publicist etc. they have given time to something that I love. I feel you should always tell those people you are grateful for their help.

15.               Have you ever dealt with performance anxiety?

I haven’t really had to deal with this. I do get the butterflies or call it what you want but that is more from excitement. Only time I have ever been nervous is when we opened for the Randy Rhoades Tribute tour. All those legendary musicians…wow

16.               Tell me about your favorite performance venues?

I have played a lot but to me it’s about the crowd more than anything. I once played at a venue the size of my living room and it may be one of the best shows I have ever played. Just give me a crowd and I will go from there

17.               What advice would you have for someone wanting to follow in your footsteps?

Run, run fast but never run away. Run towards what you love and hold it as tight as possible
