PSYCHOSTICK’s New Music Video ‘Rent In Peace’ ft. James Rolfe (Angry Video Game Nerd) Pays Homage To The Days Of Blockbuster
The days of worrying about late fees and the newest release being unavailable are over, but for some, the death of childhood favorite movie destination Blockbuster, it’s still a tragic realization. For those people – and everyone else, PSYCHOSTICK have released a music video to compliment their 2018 track ‘Rent In Peace’, an ode to days past.
‘Rent In Peace’, one of the band’s most heartfelt songs, comes from the latest album “DO” and features a cameo from James Rolfe (The Angry Video Game Nerd/Cinemassacre) and if filmed on the set of Rolfe’s “Rental Reviews”. PSYCHOSTICK comments on the cameo:
“People are probably wondering how James Rolfe ended up in one of our music videos. First of all, that video shoot was a hell of a lot of fun, James is a super chill, smart dude with a great sense of humor and good taste in beer. Speaking of beer, that’s where it all started… with the promise of a single beer back in 2010. It wasn’t until nine years later when I was finally able to deliver on the promised beer and a plan for the video was set.”
Rolfe adds: “I’m really happy about the crossover. It was lots of fun!”
For those who like comedic music ala Dethklok, Bloodhound Gang, Tenacious D, and Weird Al, PSYCHOSTICK is sure to be a hit.

“DO” is the latest full length from PSYCHOSTICK and was released during July 2018 as a surprise album that was four years in the making to follow their extremely fan loved “IV: Revenge of The Vengeance” to continue the band’s genius of blending comedy, metal, heavy rock and the occasional spoof cover.
“DO” debut #1 on Billboard’s Comedy Albums chart along with ranking at #14 for Hard Rock Album, #39 for Rock Album, #39 for Independent Albums and #9 for Heatseekers Albums for the week of August 11th, 2018.

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 have 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 five 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), ‘DO’ (2018) —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), Psychostick are crazy to share with fans many more comedy sing-a-longs on the road and more!
