Already confirmed for the Heavy Psych Sounds Fest in Austria and having just played the edition that was a rotating package tour on the West Coast of the US, Philadelphia cosmic whatever-rockers Ecstatic Vision have re-signed to the label behind it all — Heavy Psych Sounds — for the release of their new album, For the Masses, on Sept. 20. One assumes a Fall European tour announcement is forthcoming as well, as they’re also confirmed for Keep it Low in Munich, so they seem a likely candidate for a run around that.

In the meantime, presales also start today for a reissue of their first album, 2015’s Sonic Praise (review here), so in addition to the new record, there’s a little something for those either who are new to the band, or who want an excuse for multiple copies of that debut, which, frankly, is understandable.

The PR wire has details for it all, care of the label:
