Pseudo Echo will release their fifth album ‘Ultraviolent’ this Friday. It will be the band’s first album in 14 years.
‘Ultraviolet’ came about after Pseudo Echo gathered for shows in 2012 to celebrate the 30th anniversary of the release of their first hit song ‘Listening’.
To fund recording of the new album singer Brian Canham approached PledgeMusic to use fan-power to finance the album’s recording and manufacturing. Via pledgemusic.com Pseudo Echo fans could nominate the level they were comfortable with in supporting the funding of ‘Ultraviolet’.
The Pseudo Echo campaign turned out to be one of the most successful take-ups for Pledgemusic generating 126% of the financial goal and guaranteeing the release of the album.
Pseudo Echo released their first single ‘Listening’ in 1983. It peaked at no. 2 in Australia. The band went on to have nine Top 40 hits in Australia between 1983 and 1989.
