PSYCHOSTICK Posts Spread The Holiday Hate! Promo Video For 'Santa's An Asshole Tour' + FREE Download

The originators of humorcore, Phoenix, AZ’s Psychostick, are asking fans to help spread the holiday hate as they have posted a new promo video in support of their upcoming 'Santa's An Asshole Tour', which can be viewed below.

Due to the overwhelming demand, they are taking their infamous Christmas album, "The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride," back on the road again along with offering it as a FREE download for fans till the end of Thanksgiving at the following link.

Cynical and humorous throughout – what else did you expect? – the album is meant as an outlet for people who get tired of hearing the same Christmas songs over and over again to the point they begin hating the entire holiday. As the band puts it, "It’s a cynical jab to the overly commercialized holiday season." It also just so happens to possibly be the band’s heaviest record to date.

Having completed Holiday Hate Tours 1, 2, and 3 and always being asked for more – although they strictly refuse to play any of these songs unless it’s holiday time, so people really should stop asking – Psychostick will be doing it all once again this holiday season, hitting the road in November and December, bringing classics like "Jingle Bell Metal" and "Jolly Old Sadist" back to the stage.

Time to rejoice! But not too much.

Most high school friends can’t even stand to look at each other once school’s out, but in the case of vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key, they decided to spend even more time together after graduation.

Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, they 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 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 two full-length albums behind them – “We Couldn’t Think of a Title” and “Sandwich” - 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.
