English songwriter and musician, Marcus Kane, took up songwriting a few years ago when an injury kept him at home for some time.  During that time, he fell in love with his new found freedom of expression, and his diverse song collection shows his love of many different genres.  His desire to create music has only grown, and now what he wants most is to collaborate and share with other musicians. The four songs Kane has just released on iTunes are perfect for music lovers who appreciate a no-nonsense, loving, and happy approach to music.  They also demonstrate Kane’s abilities as a songwriter and are a shout out to any aspiring collaborators who may want to join him on a musical adventure.

Psychostick: Humorcore Reigns Supreme At Oddbody’s

PsychostickOhhh…the sweet nectar of the gods-beer.

The definition of beer-an alcoholic beverage usually made from malted cereal grain (as barley), flavored with hops, and brewed by slow fermentation.

Whatever-BEER IS GOOD!

That’s what the metal band Psychostick thinks.  So much so that they wrote a song about their love and admiration for it.  The song, titled simply “BEER!” (also affectionately called “The Beer Song”) has become an anthem of sorts for all those beer drinkers in the world.  Don’t believe so?  The video has been viewed by more than 5.8 million people on YouTube, making it a viral hit.  The song has also, and still is, played on satellite and FM radio stations throughout the United States.  Tonight-Psychostick will stopping in Dayton in support of their new album, IV: Revenge of The Vengeance at Oddbody’s

Since their inception in Arizona back in 2000, Psychostick has been bringing their brand of humor, hilarious lyrics like bands The Bloodhound Gang, Tenacious D, and Weird Al Yankovic.  The band’s music also features heavy riffs, notorious stage antics, and a high energy performance like what you would see with bands such as Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed.  Their first album, We Couldn’t Think of a Title was released in 2003.  The album, which includes the hit “BEER”, caught the eye of Rock Ridge Records.  The record company liked what they heard, and signed Psychostick.

One of the main statements that the band stands behind is the independence of their work with releasing their music.  The website, artwork, and general marketing is done by their singer Rob Kersey.  Psychostick records are self-produced, engineered, and mixed by their guitarist Joshua Key.

Recently, the band ran a successful Indiegogo campaign to help them build a studio in their residence in Chicago, along with helping them finish with the recording of their album IV: Revenge of The Vengeance.  “Our goal is to bring out more music and videos,” Kersey explained during a recent phone conversation.  “We have always wanted to release music quickly, and now we can be able to.”

Psychostick will be bringing specific outfits (examples from previous shows include a spiky hat wore by Kersey, a hachimaki for guitarist Key, and large moose antlers for bassist Matty J) and uses goofy prop comedy with objects like rubber chickens, stuffed animals or their instruments.  Their stage presence and shows undoubtedly bring those who are on the fence with their spin of heavy metal, and immediately come to embrace them.

Psychostick will be sharing the stage tonight at Oddbody’s with (hed)P.E., Legbone, and Menace 2 Sobriety​.  Showtime is 8pm.  18 and up show.

noType_4The new single “No Type” is a raw, stripped down hip-hop track featuring heavy ghetto house beats and the lyrical warfare of Fredricksburg, VA artist, KM.  Also, throwing down his own special madness on this track is rapper, Wy-Fi , whose fresh, rapid-fire style is a perfect contrast to the more laid-back lyrical style of KM.
