Comedy in rock and metal has always been a touchy subject, even if it's nothing new. From the days of Spinal Tap and Bad News to Tenacious D, metal fans have often been split between those who take themselves too seriously and those who can laugh at themselves. At the moment, Tempe, Arizona's own Psychostick must surely be hailed as one of the most popular and funniest bands in the "comedy metal" genre.

At their recent show in London, I had the opportunity to sit down to talk (and laugh) with guitarist Josh "The J" Key, drummer Alex "Shmalex/The Boy" Dontre and bass player Matty J "Moose" Rzemyk to discuss the use of crowdfunding, their own video game, "Pluhquest" and what Americans and British people think of each other.

On the "Pluhquest" video game:
Josh: "It's coming along great! We had to pull a little bit of a hold on it because of the new album but we've been making some great progress on it and it's turning out much better than I could of hoped for. It's an RPG, like Final Fantasy. It's so fun to do all this ridiculous shit and do all the shit we do but in game form. Rob's made some of the funniest enemies I've ever seen in a video game."
