“News of singer Pat Briggs passing is so freaking sad. I had recently reconnected with him and played guitar on two tracks for his upcoming record. He sounded brilliant on it. I hope whoever is handling his affairs makes sure the record gets released,” Steve Stevens wrote in a Facebook post.
In 1998, Psychotica added guitarist Clint Walsh and released Espina. A tour with Jack Off Jill and Switchblade Symphony followed. Shortly after the tour, Briggs moved to Los Angeles. Briggs and Kostabi went in different directions and Psychotica disbanded.
