“Psycho Ward” is yet another example of the band’s return to their roots with a contemporary twist. Issues founding guitarist, vocalist, producer and principal songwriter Jeff Waters of the track,”‘Psycho Ward’ takes us back to the musical vibe of Never, Neverland’s ‘Stonewall’ but with a drastically-different lyrical theme: domestic violence and abuse. I’ve written quite a few songs on this subject since the ’90s. But this song is the perfect combination of ‘old-school’ metal meeting the right lyrical and vocal delivery to get the point across. Enjoy, ‘old-school’ metal fans. Welcome, the new!”
