The kings of comedy rock Psychostick have kicked off their “The Veloci-Turkey-Saurus Rex Tour” presented by Zildjian in St. Louis, MO on November 2nd and are wrapping it up in Pittsburgh, PA on December 9th with support from Arsonists Get All The Girls (on select dates), Kissing Candice and Raven Black.
As the band hits the road to share new and familiar material, they have posted their latest video “Adulting”, which will be one of many new tracks planned on their forthcoming album set for release in 2018 to follow their 2014 break out Revenge of The Vengeance.
Guitarist Josh “The J” Key comments:
“Over the past couple of years, we’ve transitioned from the tour-tour-tour vagabond lifestyle to having homes and lives again. On the one hand, it’s nice to sleep in your own bed and to have a social group and girlfriends you see regularly. On the other hand, the reality of having to clean, dust, take out trash, taking care of things, mow lawns, etc left us crashing down to reality hard. Over a decade ago I uprooted my stable life as a web designer to go tour, and now I find myself recalling, “Oh YEAH! I remember this stable life stuff! And it’s BULLSHIT!” So this song is dedicated to all our fans that had to plan around their responsibilities to make it to the show.”
Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, and a style of music they’ve coined as ‘humorcore’. With hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics and high-energy performances, the band has caused millions of laughs around the world and hundreds of mosh pits across the US of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.
In addition to the tour, the band like to remind fans that No-Shave November is here and to be aware by embracing their hair, which many cancer patients lose and letting it grow wild and free. Donate the money you would typically spend on shaving and grooming to educate about cancer prevention, save lives, and aid those fighting the battle. They ask fans to share their video “Obey The Beard” with the hashtags #obeythebeard and #noshaveovember and to please donate to https://no-shave.org/.
