L-R - Alex “Shmalex” Dontre – Drums | Josh “The J” Key – Guitar | Rob “Rawrb” Kersey – Vocals | Matty J “Moose” – BassComedy rock band Psychostick have posted a thank you video to fans that helped them reach their crowd funding goal of over $30,000. The money will be invested in to the recording of their new album to follow up the band's 2011 release 'Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs' and to complete the construction of the band's recording studio that will produce hard hitting laugh along songs for eternity.
2013 saw these touring ninja warriors hit the road for multiple shows on the 'Our Tour Can Beat Up Your Tour', 'Blow Your Fingers Off' summer tour, their late summer dates with American Head Charge plus appearances at summer fests that included Rockapalooza, A2 Fest, Breast Fest Biker Bash, and Dirtfest.
They also released a series of music videos 'Obey The Beard' (www.youtube.com/watch?v=q0kSuZFOwFE), 'Sadface Emoticon' (http://youtu.be/ZsqZl3VqoM4), and their viral hit 'Dogs Like Socks' (http://youtu.be/swmuqGWgZCc).

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, a band 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, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.
Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music that Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed would be proud of, and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.
With three full-length albums behind them – “We Couldn’t Think of a Title,” “Sandwich,” and their holiday album, “The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride” - the band released their latest record, “Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D,” in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.
