Pyschostick Announces U.S. Tour

The kings of comedy rock -- Psychostick -- will embark on "The Veloci-Turkey-Saurus Rex Tour" presented by Zildjian with support from Arsonists Get All The Girls (on select dates), Kissing Candice, and Raven Black.

The tour will kick off in St. Louis, MO on November 2nd and wrap up in Pittsburgh, PA on December 9th. The band of jokesters have been busy writing new material to exclusively share with fans on this tour to follow 2014 treasure "Revenge of The Vengeance" (reviewed here).

Guitarist Joshua "The J" Key comments: "Although Zildjian is nearly a 400-year-old company, Alex from Psychostick has not been playing its cymbals exclusively for quite that long (just for the past 10), we are extremely excited that they are sponsoring the tour to celebrate his 10-year anniversary as an endorser. The line up for this tour pretty cool, it's a great mix and each band offers something memorable. I'd love to watch this show as a fan without all those 'got-a-show-to-play' responsibilities. So while I'm backstage doing lame guitar warm up scales, I'll be imagining how much fun I could be having in the audience watching Arsonists Get All the Girls tear everyone a new asshole, and I'll live vicariously through the applause and excitement I hear."

The Best Heavy Metal Christmas Songs

It's a yearly tradition for metal bands, sometimes of the very extreme death/black variety, to pull out a few tongue-in-cheek Christmas covers around this time.

While most are just jokes or aren't pulled off with much effort, there have been a handful of legitimately awesome heavy metal Christmas albums released, and we're going to show you the ones worth hearing.

If you've got a significant other or family member who insists on Christmas music this time of year, these are the albums you want to pull out to really give them a shock!

Death Metal Christmas - "Hellish Renditions Of Christmas Classics"

Back in 2013, Hate Eternal bass maverick J.J. Hrubovcak released a twistedly unholy rendition of some of the seasons darkest hymns. The EP as a whole is a bit hit or miss, but that death metal rendition of "Dance of the Sugar Plum Fairy" is absolutely killer. For all the hype this got at the time, it's a shame there's never been a follow-up release.

August Burns Red - "Sleddin' Hill"

While I'm not a huge August Burns Red fan personally, this Christmas album is absolutely phenomenal, and filled to the brim with metallic recreations of classic holiday tunes along with some originals. It's also instrumental, which is a plus, as the instrumentation here is top-notch and the band puts a heavy spin on these songs to a much better degree than many heavy metal Christmas albums that came before.

Psychostick Asks: Are Boobs Advertiser Friendly?

For those not in the loop on the YouTube situation, the site has started banning certain videos from being monetized with ads for not being "advertiser friendly" over a variety of reasons, from violence to near-nudity.

While debate rages on as to how this "non-advertiser friendly" tag seems to be disproportionately applied only to smaller YouTube channels and not to the biggest ones, our favorite comedy metal group Psychostick ran afoul of the practice with the "Because Boobs" video. The band comments:

"Because Boobs isn't very advertiser friendly, so YouTube says it shouldn't be monetized. Advertisers never use boobs to sell things. Just ask Carl's JR. ...or Hardee's depending on your location. #MeatEmbrace This is a parody video, we're aware of YT's guidelines reguarding tags, etc and accept the decree of our internet overlords."

Psychostick Is So Heavy

"'So. Heavy.' is a favorite from our latest album in all it's over-downtuned glory," says guitarist Josh 'The J' Key. "We felt it was a worthy video to launch our Patreon, which has been going very well. If you want to help us make more ridiculous videos like we have been, then please support us on Patreon!"

Psychostick's Patreon campaign allows fans to make pledges to the band to produce videos more frequently plus give exclusives and behind-the-scenes access to everything they're working on, as well as supporting the DIY band and their video production group.

In additional news, Psychostick is returning for a second U.K. tour and brining along the legendary Green Jellÿ from September 13th to October 1st. Dates are available here. More...
