PREMIERE: Obscured by Clouds Release New Live Video For “Faith’s Soul”

Obscured by Clouds are back better than ever, the Progressive Rock band is teaming up with VENTS for their most psychedelic live video for “Faith’s Soul” off their newest material.

“Faiths’ Soul” ingathers all the world’s religiosity and dogma versus meaninglessness and distortion that subdue our consciousness and participation; such capacity to think beyond these limitations and endure has it’s own source and singularity beyond ourselves, the weight of humanity, and modern cultures’ illusions.

“Pink Floyd was really responsible for my love of music, and I don’t throw that band name down loosely,” says William Weikart, the frontman and mastermind behind Obscured By Clouds, a psychedelic, art-rock outfit that doesn’t shy away from its heavy Pink Floyd influences.Weikart delivers a brand of stoner rock that has one foot in  the classics, but isn’t afraid to take charge and forge its own spacey, oft-times tripped-out path.

“I delved deeply into their music and catalogs,” Weikart continues, “as I did with so many bands in an exhaustive, passionate inculcation of music and the creative process.  Standing alone, Pink Floyd was everything that made music amazing, I would say.  If I were laying on a beach with crashing waves in a half conscious state, there would be no better music floating across the sand than ‘Relics,’ ‘More,’ ‘The Madcap Laughs,’ or even early ‘Tangerine Dream.’  Okay, and one hundred other bands too.”

It’s Weikart’s unabashed love of Pink Floyd that not only named his band, but gave him the foundation for Psycheclectic, the band’s eight track debut which found Progressive Magazine proclaiming that Obscured By Clouds “employs a hefty dose of Pink Floyd influence as a launching pad… into space/psych/prog realms, which also summons hints of Nick Drake, Bowie on barbiturates, and Hawkwind.  The band deftly dabbles in acoustic texturing amidst flowing symphonic atmospheres.”

For Weikart, however, the recording process is only a small part of the process.  Weikart lives for the live show, both as a spectator and a performer.  Recording five performances – four in Seattle and one in Los Angeles – during the Psycheclectic tour, Weikart’s Psycheclectic Records is gearing up for the October 21, 2017 release of Thermospheric, an eight-track live album that brings Psycheclectic to life, both through an audio recording which will be released as a CD and digitally, and high-definition videos of the performance accompanying every song, which will be released on Blu-Ray.  The Blu-Ray will also feature a secret track not available on the CD.
