In additional news, PSYCHOSTICK are returning for their second UK tour and they’re bringing their friends, the legendary Green Jellÿ for the ‘PsychoJellÿ Tour’. The tour will be from September 13th to October 1st to satisfy the hunger and bring more of ‘Beer’, ‘Obey The Beard’, ‘Dogs Like Socks’, ‘Bruce Campbell’, ‘Do Want A Taco?’ among many other tracks to be performed live for the fans!
Green Jellÿ (pronounced “green jello”) started more than 30 years ago and has had over 400 band member changes, plus has sold over 2 million records to keep fans still knocking heads!
The band has had hundreds of members during its lifetime, with Bill Manspeaker the only consistent member throughout. The lineup during their most popular album release, ‘Cereal Killer’ is typically referenced as it contained several musicians who went on to appear in other major 1990s bands, such as Danny Carey and Maynard James Keenan of Tool. Green Jellÿ is best known for ‘The Three Little Pigs’, a #1 selling single on Billboard with a Grammy nominated music video.
Formed in 1981 in Kenmore, NY, by founding member Bill Manspeaker, the band was originally named Green Jellö, but changed the name due to legal pressure from the owners of the Jell-O trademark, Kraft Foods, who claimed that it was an infringement of their trademark. Throughout the early 80’s, Green Jellÿ performed throughout New York, opening for bands like the Ramones and New York Dolls. Their reputation for over-the-top live performances and food-hurling audiences got them banned from most local venues. A full bio can be found here.

PSYCHOSTICK‘s 2014 album ‘IV: Revenge of The Vengeance’ was released via on Rock Ridge Music. The album features 21 tracks of pure rock comedy genius with titles such as ‘Obey The Beard‘, ‘Dogs Like Socks‘, ‘Quack Kills’ (a song about anatidaephobia: the fear of being watched by a duck), ‘Bruce Campbell’ (a tribute to the 21st century’s most beloved action hero), ‘NSFW’ featuring Bill Manspeaker (founder of Green Jellÿ), a spoof cover of Kenny Loggins’ ‘Danger Zone’ and many more! There’s no wonder why these guys are the kings of parody metal!
Harnessing their crazy sense of humor and love of all things metal, vocalist Rob “Rawrb” Kersey and guitarist Josh “The J” Key joined forces with drummer Alex “Shmalex” Dontre and bassist Matty J “Moose” to create Pyschostick, and a style of music 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 of A, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.
Now residing in Chicago, IL, the almost 100 percent do-it-yourself laugh factory Psychostick have released four full-length albums–‘We Couldn’t Think of a Title’ (2006), ‘Sandwich’ (2009), ‘Space Vampires VS Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D’ (2011) and ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ (2014)—and two EPs—their holiday album, ‘The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride’ (2007), and ‘The Digital Appetizer’. With their signature sound (Chimaira, Machine Head and Hatebreed sexing Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic) their most recent offering, the crowd-funded ‘IV: Revenge of the Vengeance’ includes the beard anthem ‘Obey the Beard’ and popular ‘Dogs Like Socks’, ‘Quack Kills’, ‘So. Heavy.’, ‘Blue Screen’, and a tribute to the 21st century’s most beloved action super hero, ‘Bruce Campbell’. Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!
