Psychostick Almost Done With Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D

Psychostick are putting the finishing touches on their next album, which will come out later this year.

Entitled "Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D," the band has 12 songs written, although the total number of tracks has not been confirmed yet.

Says band lead singer Rob "Rawrb" Kersey of the recording sessions: ""The new album focuses more on quality than quantity… we will not run out of cd space like our last album. In other words, it's not it's length that's important, it's the quality experience that it gives you that REALLY matters. Heh. We're on the final stretch of the recording. Drums are finished, vocals are almost done, guitars are nearly done, bass starts any day now. We have been laughing so much during the production of this album. I think we should win 63 Emmy awards or an Oscar or SOMETHING."

Like all of their albums, "Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D" is self-produced, with guitarist Josh Key taking the reins as the main producer and engineer.

Kersey also assures fans that this will be the band's most intense album, humor-wise. "We wanted to make sure listeners would have a hard time breathing while listening because it's so funny and they're laughing so hard," Kersey explains. They spent four months writing before hitting the studio and are excited to debut their current line-up in recorded format; bassist Matt Rzemyk, who became part of the band on bass last year, has joined the aforementioned lead singer Kersey, guitarist Key, and drummer Alex Dontre in the studio to create the band's latest masterpiece. "We've got huge video plans for this new album," says Kersey. "I think we've taken a step back from the traditional band approach and decided to focus more on comedy. With all the videos we're wanting to do and other ideas we get, we might even go so far as to call ourselves a full-blown media production... thing." Lest fans worry that the band has deserted the rock in favor of the funny, there is no need. On the new record, Psychostick promises to maintain its strong, gritty, hard-rocking foundation, all while turning the funny up to 11.

The band plans to hit the road in April on their "Unleash The Dumb" Tour (see tour schedule below), and encourages fans to go all-out by dressing up in goofy, outlandish garb when attending the shows. Concert goers will get a sneak peek at the new album, as the band promises to play one or two new songs on the tour.
