Psychostick just released a video from the recording session with Green Jellÿ's Bill Manspeaker, who did guest vocals on the band's track "NSFW" featured on new album "IV: Revenge of The Vengeance" (reviewed here). The band comments:
"It's an honor to have Bill Manspeaker on our new record, because Green Jellÿ paved the way for what Psychostick does. We met Bill several years back when we toured with Green Jellÿ and Nashville Pussy, and we became friends. He is a super fun and downright fascinating guy, and a little known fun fact: HE is the one that actually designed and created our bassist Moose's first set of stage antlers- he gave them to him as a gift on that tour!"
In additional news, Psychostick recently wrapped up tour dates with Downtown Brown, Fungonewrong, and Hed PE and will be announcing 2015 dates in the new year. More...

The fantastically named band Nashville Pussy likes to be on tour. So much so that they must have spent at least twice as many nights on the road as they have at home since they began playing their dirty, bluesy rock back in 1996. Out on their most recent tour, the “Parental Advisory Tour,” along with comedy rock/metal outfits Green Jello and Psychostick, Nashville Pussy is bringing their rolling party to a club near you! And if you like rock and booze, or if you like just one of those things, you want to see this show really bad. More...
