Sydney psych legends Richard In Your Mind have released an upbeat, fast paced new single, Ecstatic Electricity, which has been accompanied by a massive tour announcement.
2015 saw the band lose long time drummer Pat Torres, who was replaced by ex-Deep Sea Arcade drummer Carlos Adura, who features on the new track. Frontman Richard Cartwright says of the new track “From the darkness came new light, new songs. Ecstatic Electricityis one of a bunch of new material that started flowing really quickly and freely. It sounds like how we’ve been feeling – lots of energy and lots of guitars. It’s like the dark emperor shooting lightning bolts from his finger tips trying to kill you but it just makes you stronger and feels good.”
The Ecstatic Electricity tour comes after Richard In Your Mind were on the road for a sold out earlier this year, and will kick off on October 29 in Manly and will take the boys right through to the end of the year.
