Most high school friends lose contact and drift apart when they graduate from high school. But what would happen if two crazy friends who loved metal went on to createa metal band? Not just any metal band, but a metal band with a crazy sense of humor?
The result is Psychostick: a comedy metal (self-proclaimed “humorcore”) band with areputation for having hilarious lyrics, heavy riffs, notorious stage antics, and a high energy performance. The music successfully crosses a level of heaviness and aggression foundin bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed with the wit and humor of The Bloodhound Gang, Tenacious D, and Weird Al Yankovic.
It all started when Rob Kersey and Josh Key decided to take the crazy sense of humor that only two best friends can share, and throw it onto a canvas of heavymusic. “I noticed that we had a different view of metal than other metalheads… we found certain things about it funny”, Kersey confesses.
