Psychedelic rock is making a comeback in 2015, and we couldn’t be more excited! Here’s a look at some of the best new psychedelic rock bands that are leading the charge.

Psychedelic Rock is Making a Comeback

Psychedelic Rock is making a comeback in 2015. The genre, which was popular in the late 1960s and early 1970s, is seeing a resurgence in popularity. Psychedelic Rock bands such as The Zombies and The Beatles are being discovered by a new generation of music fans.

The Beatles

Psychedelic rock made a comeback in 2015, and The Beatles were a big influence. The band’s sound was defined by their use of distorted electric guitars, sitars, and tape loops, as well as their exploration of eastern-influenced modal harmonicprogressions.

The Doors

The Doors were an American rock band formed in Los Angeles in 1965, with vocalist Jim Morrison, keyboardist Ray Manzarek, guitarist Robby Krieger, and drummer John Densmore. They were one of the most controversial and influential rock bands of the 1960s because of Morrison’s wild, poetic lyrics and charismatic but unpredictable stage persona. Due to his erratic behavior and self-destructive lifestyle, Morrison was often seen as the stereotypical “rock star” and became one of the most intriguing figures in pop culture. The band’s debut album, The Doors (1967), released by Elektra Records, featured their breakthrough single “Light My Fire” and became one of the best-selling debut albums of all time. More hits followed, including “People Are Strange”, “Touch Me”, “Hello, I Love You”, and “Riders on the Storm”.

Jimi Hendrix

Psychedelic Rock is making a comeback in 2015, and one of the driving forces behind this renewed interest is the reissue of seminal albums from the genre’s pioneers. One of these is Jimi Hendrix’s Are You Experienced?, which is being reissued on May 5th by Experience Hendrix/Legacy Recordings in a variety of formats, including a super deluxe edition featuring over four hours of previously unreleased audio and video.

The New Psychedelic Rock

Psychedelic rock, also known as acid rock, is making a comeback in 2015. The genre was popularized in the 1960s and is known for its trippy, mind-bending sound. Psychedelic rock is characterized by distorted guitars, mind-altering lyrics, and a heavy use of effects.

Tame Impala

Psychedelic rock was at its peak in the late 1960s, with bands like The Beatles, The Beach Boys, and The Grateful Dead creating some of the most iconic songs ever written. But by the early 1970s, the genre had all but disappeared.

Now, 45 years later, psychedelic rock is making a comeback. Bands like Tame Impala, The Black Angels, and Allah-Las are bringing back the trippy sounds and mind-bending lyrics of the 60s and 70s.

If you’re looking to dive into the world of modern psychedelic rock, these three bands are a great place to start.

The Black Keys

The Black Keys are an American rock band formed in Akron, Ohio, in 2001. The group consists of Dan Auerbach (guitar, vocals) and Patrick Carney (drums). Their sound has been variously described as garage rock, neo-psychedelia, and blues rock.

In 2010, they released their debut album, Brothers, which peaked at number three on the Billboard 200 and went platinum. Their 2011 follow-up album, El Camino, reached number two on the Billboard 200 and went platinum. In 2014, they released their eighth album Turn Blue. It reached number one on the Billboard 200 chart and received three Grammy Awards for Best Alternative Music Album and Best Rock Performance.

The Strokes

The Strokes are an American rock band from New York City. Formed in 1998, the band is composed of lead vocalist and guitarist Julian Casablancas, guitarists Nick Valensi and Albert Hammond Jr., bassist Nikolai Fraiture, and drummer Fabrizio Moretti. Lead singer-songwriter Casablancas, guitarist Hammond Jr., and drummer Moretti are all sons of famous musicians. Upon the band’s return from a five-year hiatus in 2013, they released their fifth studio album, Comedown Machine.

The Strokes are one of the most important bands of the early 2000s because they guitar-based indie rock to the mainstream and helped usher in a new era of garage rock revivalism. The band’s debut album Is This It (2001) was an instant classic and remains one of the most beloved albums of the past two decades. The group’s follow-up albums Room on Fire (2003), First Impressions of Earth (2006), Angles (2011), and Comedown Machine (2013) were all highly successful as well; each album charted within the top 10 on Billboard200. The Strokes have sold over 5 million albums worldwide.
