Psychic Ills released their first full length album, Dins, in early 2006. The album’s cover art is German Fluxus artist Wolf Vostell’s painting Three Hairs and Shadow.

The Village Voice named Psychic Ills “Best Psych Rock Band” in their 2006 Best of NYC issue.

In early 2008, Psychic Ills performed in Marfa, Texas for the opening of the Hello Meth Lab in the Sun art installation and at the Contemporary Art Museum in Bordeaux France for the IAO festival. In 2009 they released Mirror Eye and toured the US with Butthole Surfers.

For 2011’s Hazed Dream, the band moved to Sacred Bones Records and opted for a more streamlined, accessible approach.
