Psychostick To Deliver New Humorcore Songs Next Week
Humorcore rockers Psychostick are set to unleash their The Digital Sampler on May 11, 2010 featuring three new tracks that will be available via their website (www.psychostick.com), MySpace page (www.myspace.com/psychostick) and Facebook page (www.facebook.com/psychostick). The song titles are "Cockblock," "Tuff Luv," and "iSong."
Psychostick plan to hit the road in June and July with one of their favorite underground bands, Look What I Did (tour dates to be announced soon). The six-week run has been titled "The Pay Off the Van Tour."
"We've been making payments on the chariot for what seems like forever," says Psychostick vocalist Rob Kersey. "Our goal is to pay off the final few thousand this summer and relieve some of the financial strain on our bank account. It's a noble cause."
Psychostick is currently in the midst of the Parental Advisory Tour with Nashville Pussy and Green Jelly (see remaining tour dates below). "Touring with Green Jelly and Nashville Pussy has been very educational and enlightening," says Kersey. "We've always been a DIY, self-touring band, but now we're seeing how touring with professionals actually works. Bill Manspeaker from Green Jelly has been especially influential."
Psychostick helped Manspeaker celebrate his birthday in Austin, TX, with proper chaos on May 1st. The band, along with the help of fans and Nashville Pussy guitarist Ruyter Suys, pummeled him with 60 rolls of toilet paper and 15 canisters of silly string. Manspeaker later thanked the band for a memorable evening. Fan footage of the event: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XHD33ZI0SMc
