A FIVE-PIECE metal band from Selkirk and Tweedbank have released a new EP – and hope to play in the region this year.

Psychotropic System is made up of vocalist Bruce Dickie (24), guitarists Steven Davison (23) and David Hardy (24), bassist Kristofer Bald (28) and drummer and singer Donna Easton (28).

The quintet held a launch night in Glasgow earlier this month for Preparation Expectation.

Donna said: “We are definitely looking forward to playing in the Border’s in the near future to showcase the songs.”

The band, who have been playing together for four years, have performed at various venues throughout the UK, working hard on writing new material and building a name for themselves on the Glasgow metal scene.

Venues played so far include Glasgow’s Classic Grande and Barrowlands 2, and Newcastle’s Three Tuns.

They have built up a loyal following in Scotland’s largest city and in their home region.

David Hardy said: “We are all really excited about the EP. There will be 100 limited edition CDs for the launch and for anyone local who wants to get their hands on one, each CD will have something unique printed on it and will contain three new songs for fans to hear.”
