PSYCHOSTICK Announces The Sandwich CD Release Party Tour
April 6, 2009, 9 years ago
Heavy metal jesters PSYCHOSTICK have announced their first string of upcoming tour dates to support the release of their latest album, Sandwich, which streets May 5th on Rock Ridge Music. The tour kicks off with support dates on the Jagermeister Music Tour (also featuring PENNYWISE, PEPPER and AUTHORITY ZERO), with headlining dates starting on Tuesday, May 5th.
Guitarist Jake McReynolds commented on the upcoming tour: “The Sandwich CD Release Party Tour is going to be an EPIC journey across this great country, leaving in its wake a new breed of metal fan. I am looking forward to this tour, because I am really proud of the new songs. We will definitely play the favorites from the first record, but this tour is about the new songs. It's about the new Psychostick.”“My band is stupid and they're making me tour,” adds vocalist Rob ‘Rawrb’ Kersey. “What is it with these jerks? All I know is that this time around we're going to surgically rock faces directly off of all cranial cavities that are within a 50 mile radius of any and all shows put on by Psychostick. Then we can sell the slightly used faces on the black market to buy video games. That's why we're here, right? Video games? No, it was for food. But why just food? We can eat food and play video games at the same time! Genius!”
Sandwich is the full-length follow-up to 2006’s We Couldn’t Think Of A Title. The album, a 24-track opus to food, email spam, bad directions, revenge, and more food, was recorded by guitarist Josh Key at Toxic Recording in Gilbert, Arizona, and features new members Jake McReynolds on second guitar and former Indorphine vocalist Jimmy Grant on bass. Rounding out the band roster are Alex Preiss (drums), and Rob Kersey (vocals).
In addition to the tour, Psychostick also recently announced the Beat Our Meat contest (psychostick.com/beatourmeat), where fans are encouraged to create their own one-of-a-kind “epic metal sandwich,” and videotape themselves eating it. Five sandwich creations will be selected to win a Psychostick Sandwich gift package, including a signed album, a $25 Subway gift card, and more. Entries are being accepted until Sunday, April 19th at 11:59 p.m. eastern time.
