One of Canada’s most versatile and vibrant rock bands along with being the 2020 Western Canadian Music Award winner for “Metal/Hard Music Artist of The Year”, Dizzy Mystics are proud to announce a brand new track, revealing it only with a video showing the live-off-the-floor performance.
This single “Centre of the 8” is a tease of the next Dizzy Mystic’s album, which follows 2019’s groovy and psychedelic “Wanderlost”. The band is certain that the high energy video will captivate listeners, as they comment:
“This song is a small example of things to come on the upcoming album. We’ve upped the ante on heaviness, breathing room, and melodic/emotional depth. Enjoy!”
The video was recorded live at Beyond Boundaries Academy in Winnipeg, Canada, with help from Clint Chaboyer (sound engineer/mixer) and Sean Perrun (cinematographer/director/editor) from Red Tie Productions. It gives listeners a look at what to expect from a live show: a wide range of 70s vocals, funky bass lines, and psychedelic rock riffs that will catapult you into a realm of dreamy, esoteric, progressive rock.
Weird, interesting, and nourishing, fans of Tool, Primus, and Frank Zappa should keep an eye and ear out for the next album from Dizzy Mystics.
The video for “Centre of the 8” can be seen via its premiere on TheProgSpace HERE.

As the recipe implies, rock music is the spoon that stirs the soup, and no genre (or spice) is out of the question for Dizzy Mystics. Climbing out the stock pot in 2015, Dizzy Mystics are a psychedelic rock band based out of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. One can expect a dynamically diverse, tastefully complex, and energetic dose of adventurous hard rock with feet moving rhythmic swagger, and stargazing melodies.

“It is clear that Dizzy Mystics may be among the most unique of the vibrant Canadian rock scene to be delivering tracks that will leave fans of classic, progressive, and 90’s alternative rock excited for what is to come.” – Canadian Beats
“Mysticism aside, this band certainly got the “dizzy” part right! The Winnipeg rock quartet Dizzy Mystics offer up a staggering musical concoction that, considering its progressive and experimental flair, is surprisingly radio-ready. Think Rush and Primus drinking wine with Tool before dropping acid with Frank Zappa and checking out a jazz club with Steely Dan. Dizzying, right? Jokes aside, frontman Kyle Halldorson, guitarist Alexandre Joyal, drummer Jeffrey Laird and bassist Aaron Bacon have some serious chops and, with the right amount of work, gigging and outside help, this Canadian act has the potential to not only see the end of the tarmac, but to also take off!” – PureGrainAudio
“Diamond Duller moves and groves, in interesting rhythms, changing from one beat to another, shifting and clanging with energy. The vocals bring about high energy and ensure the listener is hooked from the get go.” – The Median Man
“The quartet has crafted a psychedelic and progressive sound upon many others including melodic hard rock and funk. The band takes you through a heavy and psychedelic trip on their latest single.” – Technical Music Review
