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 of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.
Now residing in Chicago, IL, with four full-length albums behind them – We Couldn’t Think of a Title (2006), their holiday album The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride (2007), Sandwich (2009), and Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D (2011), the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory Psychostick returns with their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic) to showcase their latest offering, the crowd funded album IV: Revenge of The Vengeance (fan thank you video due out on November 4, 2014. Featuring a hilarious track listing that includes previously released singles the beard anthem Obey The Beard and popular Dog Like Socks, plus new tracks such as Quack KillsSo.

Fun facts about Psychostick
"The opening set by Psychostick — a band best known in Kansas City for its 98.9 The Rock staple “Beer!” — was deeply amusing. Heavy metal is ripe for parody, and the jokers in the Arizona band mercilessly mock the genre’s inherent silliness. Psychostick’s presence reflected the night’s theme of good, dirty fun.” - Kansas City Star
""The grooves are infectious and easy to nod along to"-
""Psychostick continues to be the most fun band in rock'n'roll with "Sandwich," twenty-four tracks that will have you banging your head while you laugh your ass off at the same time." -
"I found myself laughing out loud, track after ridiculous track, eager to hear what nonsense was to follow." -
"If you like humorous metal like Polkadot Cadaver you might just laugh yourself to death by this new album (Space Vampires vs Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D by Psychostick. It’s actually very like a comedy show on metal music. Totally awesome and insane." -MetalLikey
"A crazy musical storm truly one of the most entertaining and energetic show’s we’ve covered in a long time and most defiantly the most humorous!" -
"Do you want to metal? Psychostick wants to metal. On their newest, heaviest and funniest effort Sandwich, the clowned princes of humorcore metal their mad-hatted heads off." - 
"Listening to a Psychostick album is like eavesdropping on college bros riffing on each other or just jamming in their garage."
"When listening to a Psychostick album, you can usually expect two things: outstanding guitar riffs and hooks and then, and most importantly, you can almost always expect to laugh…at least once or twice."
"Psychostick is notorious for a few things, two of which being off-the-wall album titles (2003’s We Couldn’t Think of a Title” and 2009’s Sandwich) and hilarious lyrics meshed with face-melting instrumentals."
"...the Weird Al Yankovic of Metal." -
"...the more you listen, the funnier and harder it becomes." -
"It's a magical moment when you see a band doing exactly what they love to do."
"Psychostick wrapped more amazingness into about 35 minutes than I have ever really seen in concert." -
"Psychostick may come off as idiot savants considering a lot of what they sing about are everyday common crap such as oranges, hoagies, salsa and taking showers, but the Texas taco munchers who once released an album called We Couldn't Think of a Title in 2006 are smarter than you think." - The Metal Minute
"Psychostick release another solid album with over-the-top hilarity." Sputnik Music - Review of Sandwich
