PSYCHO LAS VEGAS - set to take place from August 18th through August 20th, 2017 at the Hard Rock Hotel And Casino Las Vegas in Las Vegas, Nevada -- announces over thirty-five new additions to its massive 2017 lineup. The festival has quickly become the premier event in the US for underground heavy rock, psych, doom, alternative, and beyond, and as the roster grows for this year's edition, they're clearly looking to push their boundaries even further.

Headliners remain TBA, but joining previously-announced generation-defining acts like NEUROSIS, SWANS, and French prog lords MAGMA, comes UK grind legends CARCASS, whose reunion continues to bring gruesome tales of dissections and unparalleled.

They'll be in good company with Norwegian black metal legend ABBATH, formerly of IMMORTAL, who released a raging self-titled debut album under his own name this year, New York's MYRKUR, whose own debut, M, disrupted black metal genre convention on nearly every level, and USBM innovators WOLVES IN THE THRONE ROOM, who continue to refine a style they helped establish more than a decade ago.

Look for the MELVINS to boggle brains with their brand of heavy rock - still unique unto itself after more than three decades - as well as for the new project CRYSTAL FAIRY with Buzzo and Dale from the MELVINS, Omar Rodriguez-Lopez (MARS VOLTA) and Teri Gender Bender (LE BUTCHERETTES) to bring to life their debut album, which releases in February on Ipecac Recordings.

This latest announcement also brings sludge-laden chaos from the pair of WEEDEATER and BUZZOV*EN, REFUSED to remind us of the shape of the punk that came in their wake, and CHELSEA WOLFE to emit a darkness that even Las Vegas in the summer won't be able to hold at bay.

The reunited SLO BURN (vocalist John Garcia's first project post-KYUSS) will play an exclusive US show at Psycho, and a special highlight performance from psych-jazz legend MULATU ASTATKE is open eyes, ears and minds alike as he celebrates a career spanning more than fifty-years years.

Also added are long-running mischief-makers Murder City Devils, alt-rock legends Echo And The Bunnymen, progressive thrashers Vhöl (members of Yob and Agalloch), Pelican, Cult Of Luna, Psychic TV, and as it did with the landmark 2016 edition, the fest digs deep into the heavy rock underground once again to unearth the best of up-and-coming bands from the States and beyond. Along with the already confirmed riff-crushers Windhand, Blood Ceremony, Slomatics, and Domkraft, Elephant Tree (UK) have signed on alongside fellow fest-newcomers Khemmis, Sumac (members of Isis), Gatecreeper, Snail, North, Cult Leader, Hollow Leg, Summoner, Floorian, Wizard Rifle, Merlin, and Morne.

Further lineup announcements will follow in the New Year -- including headliners -- so stay tuned for more from the best and biggest heavy festival the US has ever seen.
