Psychostick, the humorcore metal band from Tempe, AZ embarked on their “Santa’s an Asshole” tour today kicking off tonight in Peoria, IL. Known for their comedic lyrics and serious sound, the band has been plugging away on the music scene for nearly fifteen years now. From their timeless classic “Beer!” to their newer songs “Because Boobs“, they exude an atmosphere of fun, eccentric, controlled chaos at their shows. Encouraging their fans to dress in costume at their gigs leads to an often crazy surrealistic scene as people dressed as reindeer, comic figures, and even Angry Birds characters moshing about in the pit, where the motto is “Who says you can’t laugh while you pit?” Rawrb (Rob Kersey), the oft spiked hat wearing frontman of the group spoke with me on the phone today from Illinois for a bit to talk about all things in the crazy world of Pyscohstick, from the latest release of “Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3-D” to their upcoming holiday tour, and of course, tacos.
