Songfacts®:

  • Sandwich was Psychostick's second studio album. Their guitarist Josh Key told us: "There are actually several songs off the album that are special not really for the song content, but the time period in which they were written. Half of this album was written before we started touring, and it was a BAD year for me. I had lost my job making 40k a year and went to working at a Circle K with debts of several thousand dollars. What kept me going was the thought of someday recording those songs on a new Psychostick album. Hearing these songs played back to me is proof that I made it, and that I'll make it through the next bad times." (The band's website is psychostick.com.)
