Psychostick Livestreams Poised to Surpass $10,000 in Donations to COVID-19 Relief this Thursday, May 14th




Legendary Comedy Metal Band PSYCHOSTICK has been live streaming their hilarious "Cabin Fever Concerts" every Thursday (on Twitch, YouTube, and Facebook) for the past 2 months to help keep people sane during the Spring 2020 shelter-in-place, and fans have enthusiastically turned out with every week. Along with their shows, the band has donated over $9,000 to various charities--a different charity every week--so far to fight COVID-19, and expect to break $10,000 in donations this Thursday, May 14th.



The charities receiving donations include: Project C.U.R.E., CDC Foundation, Doctors Without Borders, COVID-19 Solidarity Response Fund, International Rescue Committee, Direct Relief, & Center for Disaster Philanthropy COVID-19 Response Fund.


"Perhaps I'm losing my mind, but I've laughed harder at certain points during these past 8 streamed performances than I have in years. It's more casual than a typical concert, it allows for more spontaneous insanity. We've been having so much fun being weirdos and messing with our fans in the chat on these streams that it feels as if it's breaking the unspoken "be scared of everything all the time" rule.... yet there it is, and fans have been saying the most heartfelt and appreciative things to us because of it, that it's the highlight of their week and it helps them to set down their worries about the world for a little while." - Josh

“After so many years of computers ruining the lives of all people, we've finally found a good use for them: Performing comedy metal music LIVE on the internet! Even better, our amazing, smelly fanbase has helped raise money for tons of charities! Does it get any better than that? NO!” - Rob

"It's also nice to be able to play some of our old deep cuts from old albums that we've never performed live before. Which means I've actually had to practice my instrument a lot, which I hear is a good thing to do when you're a musician." - Josh

"We're all so grateful to be able to take comedy metal and SMASH it together with charity. It’s crazy how many people have been coming together online to watch, donate, and make a difference while in their underwear on an easy chair. Computer Technology! The wave of the FUTURE!" - Matty J

“We may not be able to control much right now, but we can control how we choose to act in the face of a tough situation. We choose to play music to try and bring some levity to the world. Our fans choose to join us online, those who can donate have been amazingly generous, and pretty much everyone gets to throw down in the chat pit!” -Alex

REVIEW: Spreading The Disease - Insurrection

Modern metal quartet Spreading The Disease from Kent, UK formed in 2014 and then earlier this year in September 2017 they finally unleased their debut album ‘Insurrection’ which shows they are ready to infect metalheads and critics alike with their no-nonsense sounds…
Opening song ‘Find My Path’ starts with a melodic and resonant intro before fierce vocals come in with hard-hitting heavy guitars, it then goes on to feature an effective stripped back section towards the end which gives it extra depth. This is a powerful and strong start to the album.
‘Words Unspoken’ is a thumping tune with great rhythms and is very headbang worthy and incredibly catchy, keeping up the momentum is self-named track ‘Spreading The Disease’ which immediately pulls you in with catchy melodies and is all consuming with mighty riffs and a massive aggressive sound.
Latest single ‘Greed’ is frantic and driven and features some of the best guitarwork so far and again is very belligerent and is bound to get the mos…

The trio have been hard at work since, creating their anticipated debut album 'This Is The Sound' which was released June 30th via Nuclear Blast Records and have impressed fans and press alike with their fresh and unique sound which has been dubbed as "the new wave of folk rock“.
