     Ottawa, ON video game rock nerds Double Experience are proud to announce Ontario show dates for the month of April and May for their ‘Rated M For MaTOUR’ that will include a performance at this year’s Canadian Music Week on May 10th in Toronto, ON.

“Ever since we completed the new record last summer, we toured extensively overseas and got tons footage for the new single in the process. For this spring tour, we really wanted to focus on our home province of Ontario and visit cities that we haven’t been to in almost a year. To make it even more special, we will be bringing the very first copies of our brand new album along with us as a tour-exclusive for our fans to get their hands on before the official release later this year.” comments vocalist Ian Nichols.

The band is gearing up for the summer release of their forthcoming album721835′ on August 1st to follow up their 2011 EP ‘One Big Quicksand’. The band’s first music video in support of the album ‘Who The Hell?’ can be viewed at the following link:

The band’s upcoming album, ‘721835′ was recorded by fellow science-fiction aficionado Al Jacob (He is Legend, A Skylit Drive) in North Carolina and is a curious collection of songs that demand to be heard. Inspired by everything the band loves and considers nerdy, this release showcases a creative sound influenced by geeky comic books, trading cards, classic 8 bits games to today’s future 3D experiences.

Their 2011 debut album, One Big Quicksand’ was recorded and produced by up-and-comer Jayson DeZuzio (Coheed and Cambria, My Chemical Romance) and was released via Blue Sapphire/Universal Music Canada

Humorcore Kings PSYCHOSTICK Announce ‘The ‘Merica F*ck Yeah Tour’; New Video ‘Obey The Beard’

L-R = Josh “The J” Key – Guitar | Matty J “Moose” – Bass | Rob “Rawrb” Kersey – Vocals | Alex “Shmalex” Dontre – Drums

      The comedy rock never stops for Psychotick as the humorcore masters gear up for their next rage across the US for their ‘The ‘Merica F*ck Yeah Tour’ kicking off in Amityville, NY on May 29th and wrapping up in St. Louis, MO on June 27th. The band will be joined by Dog Fashion Disco and The Bunny The Bear.

Psychostick guitarist Josh “The J” Key comments:

“It’s an honor to be touring with the legendary Dog Fashion Disco. Add The Bunny The Bear to the mix, and it’s going to be a ridiculously fun show, you won’t want to miss this unless your legs have been chopped off. No, I take that back: legs chopped is no excuse… be there! As for me personally, it’s also been a while since we played the West coast… it’s about time we get back to somewhere that knows how to make a decent chimichanga!” 

Psychostick is currently working tireless days and nights to complete their follow up release to 2011′s ‘Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs In 3D’ after reaching their crowd funding goal of 30,000 to record their forthcoming album and build a new recording studio based in Chicago, IL.

‘Girl Directions‘ - (sometimes she gets us lost, but not all the time)


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, a band 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, often simultaneously, since its birth in Phoenix, AZ in 2000.

Almost 100 percent do-it-yourself, Psychostick never strays from its signature sound, a combination of heavy music that Chimaira, Machine Head, and Hatebreed would be proud of, and wit and humor that would make Tenacious D and Weird Al Yankovic holler with laughter.

With three full-length albums behind them – “We Couldn’t Think of a Title,” “Sandwich,” and their holiday album, “The Flesh Eating Rollerskate Holiday Joyride” – the band released their latest record, “Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs in 3D,” in 2011, following it up with a tour with Mushroomhead to add to their total count of 21 nationwide tours that have hit 47 states.

After a successful 2013 that saw these touring ninja warriors hit the road for multiple shows on the ‘Our Tour Can Beat Up Your Tour’, ‘Blow Your Fingers Off’ summer tour, their late summer dates with American Head Charge plus appearances at summer fests that included Rockapalooza, A2 Fest, Breast Fest Biker Bash, and Dirtfest.  The band finally took a break in last months of the year and held a successful crowd funding campaign (thank you video, where they are now currently in studio recording their follow up to 2011′s ‘Space Vampires vs. Zombie Dinosaurs In 3D’.

“I am so scared of this…but that’s good.”  – Bob Ezrin

“Think a 3 piece Mr. Bungle with Patton’s vocals taking a turn for the better, add some laser beams and dreads, turn it all up to eleven, stand the fuck back and enjoy.” – Ground Report , NYC

“Pay attention Canadian recording industry, Ninjaspy is on the rise and the people’s salvation is at hand.” -Absolute Underground Magazine

“Soaring vocal harmonies are there one minute and replaced with a throaty growl the next. “Pure Sketch” is a sure-fire modern rock radio hit, as the post-grunge frame work gets stirred up into a tasty seventies inspired soul/funk soup”. –

“Bloody well are entertaining. All dreadlocks and fricking samurai swords, giant pants and flying limbs. Not a speck of the stage was left untouched by this band’s chaotic feet.”  – Cord Magazine

“The album itself is a blend of Hardcore, Punk, Ska, Rock & Metal, a recipe for brilliance. I urge everyone to check out this band, you may just re-evaluate your existence” – Infinitybasement


Ninjaspy arose with the dawn of the year of six, embodied by the Triad in Blood: Vocalist/Guitarist Joel Parent, Drummer Adam Parent and Bassist Tim Parent. Rising above the mire of their faceless six year muse, they have focused their sights on the mission objectives now at hand: Swift, surgical amalgamation of a spectrum of styles and the subsequent eradication of narrow mindedness. Advocating total freedom of expression and infiltrating every earthen sinew in their chosen path in order to stay grounded and facilitate real connections with others; interactions that are crucial for a meaningful human existence. In correlation with a commitment to people before all else, support for Ninjaspy has grown with every show, every tour and every industry contact.

With the help of prolific producers, GGGarth Richardson and Ben Kaplan, they entered the next level of their career, releasing their debut cd πature (Pi Nature) in the fall of 2007. Ever reworking new ideas to their utmost potential, 2013 saw the release of the follow-up multi-media EP/Graphic Novella “NINJASPY NO KATA” with production by the same team of producers.

Equipped and, indeed, armed with their own musical weaponry, (a derivation of hardcore, ska, grunge, reggae, funk and more) Ninjaspy aim to engage people with radical ideas on a level plane. And above all else, to reiterate to people over and again, the importance of victory in the eternal conflict with the skank; the vicious and relentless evil that lives in every human being. The skank that is overcome each time Ninjaspy has the honour of sharing their crafts with people in a live environment, where dancing destroys the enemy. The enemy whose defeat is apparent as one witnesses the total freedom felt at every show by the people in the pit who rise up to throw the skank down.

2007 – πature (Pi Nature) – LP
2011 – Skaingkh (The Skank) – Digital Single
2013 – No Kata – EP

This is Tribune‘s second cross Canada Tour since 2012, when they toured across the US and Canada in support of their last release ‘Elder Lore/ The Dark Arts’.

The Vancouver quintet unleashed their concept album ‘Tales’ during October 2013 via their indie label Corpse Corrosion Music. The release was inspired entirely by literature and features a wide array of influences from Homer to Mary Shelley to H.P. Lovecraft, to more extreme musical influences such as Carcass, Death and At The Gates. The band’s appetite for more melodic and more brutally heavy sounds to follow-up 2011’s Elder Lore/The Dark Arts is demonstrated with their collusion of extremity and accessibility that bleeds into the melting pot and their fresh take of progressive death metal.

MIRE officially released their new album ‘Inward/Outward’ on March 18th to follow up their 2010 self titled EP. Two year’s in the making, the album is based on the band’s personal experiences ranging from the study of cognitive science to a military stint in Afghanistan. The album’s 10 tracks marry a sonic wall of loud heavy yet strong melodic progressive rock metal that is winning fans and media over with comparisons of being named heirs to the Tool and a perfect band for fans of Karnivool, A Perfect Circle, Dead Letter Circus, Deftones and ISIS(media reviews below).

Vocalist JP LaChapelle comments on the release:

Interpreted through our fingers, tongued and toe tips, this album which we’ve been working on for 2 years at totally different points in our lives, demonstrates the fan of emotions of 5 individuals’ experience. The craft is the loom into which our soil-tending, sun-vising and pest-warding efforts bear fruit. Love for the fate of man and the anger to defend it. Overwhelmed with a sense of innate creativity, we all curb our nature to the structures put in place for our short lives; whether building an enterprise, community or institution of any kind. MIRE’s decided to make music. Filtered as pure as possible, our passion rendered this product. Our maiden album expresses the plight of an impeached animal nature, faced with the philosophy of man’s fate run through questionable funnels. Throughout our creative process, we’ve experienced different stages and shed skins. The 5 colors we shine combine through the prism of ‘Inward Outward’ to produce the first of MIRE’s own hues. Being able to walk one’s own path is its own reward and we five musicians feel incredibly fortunate to have seized the chance to create this album. That’s what we celebrate every time we hear it. SHARE”

The album is now available as PAY WHAT YOU WANT on the band’s bandcamp here and iTunes.

Music Video – ‘Limitless Pt. 2′

mire - "limitless(pt2)" [official hd]

“…newcomers Mire should be considered the heirs to the Tool throne with their latest record, Inward Outward is about as close to Tool as you can get without being Tool. Musically and sonically, Mire are spot-on with the psychedelic metal we’ve all become so accustomed to and you’re guaranteed to zone out listening to the record.” - The Front Row Report

“With Inward:Outward, MIRE has formed a soundscape that flows between mellow moods and mental turbulence, using the whole spectrum of sound as its playground. It is emotional, striking, and addictively wonderful. You would be doing yourself a disservice not to, at the very least, download the free tracks offered by this promising young group.” – Barry Adkins – Target Audience Magazine

“If you’re a fan of Tool, Karnivool, A Perfect Circle, Dead Letter Circus, and similar sounding bands, then you should be pointing your ears towards Montreal, QC band Mire” – Bloody Disgusting

“While the world waits for the forthcoming Tool album (and we’ve been waiting a LONG time), everyone should do themselves a favor and grab a copy of Inward/Outward. Trust me, you won’t be disappointed.” – Sea of Tranquility

“…a sophisticated style with fundamental guitars and classy quality vocals.” – Metal Temple

“This is an album of incredibly impressive music that is both haunting and uplifting in equal measure.  The soaring audio landscapes are multi-layered, and the experience of listening to this album is a real emotional journey.  It perfectly combines aggressive chunky guitars, melodic piano, and moments of all out angst and aggression. This is an album of hypnotizing prog-metal that just gets better with each and every listen.  If you’re a fan of progressive rock / metal, this is highly recommended! Score: 9.0 out of 10″ – All About The Rock

“Fans of bands like Tool, A Perfect Circle, Deftones and Porcupine Tree should feel right at home listening to this quintet out of Montreal QC…I think MIRE is a band to keep your eyes and ears on, and I look forward to seeing their territory grow.” – Rock Revolt Magazine

“I adore this album and have now had it on three times and heard new bits that make me go ‘Ahhh!’ in satisfaction each time. Definitely one to buy, and definitely a band to watch out for.” – Wyrd Ways Rock Show Review
