Power Trip Announces North American Headlining Tour

Well, I’m practically thawed out from the recent below freezing temperatures that were hitting NYC and the surrounding areas and fortunately during the lock down it imposed, the news about releases and tours kept on coming. Here is the latest skinny from the band Power Trip who will be heading out on a lengthy headlining run.

The Press Release:
POWER TRIP and SHEER MAG team up this May/June for what is sure to be a wild and unforgettable run through North America — rounding out an impressive year for both bands.

POWER TRIP’s breakthrough album, Nightmare Logic, earned an overwhelming amount of love across the board, ranging in praise from The New Yorker to a Pitchfork ‘Best New Music’ to numerous Top 10 Record of the Year lists. They were awarded the Best Metal Album of the Year from Loudwire and song placement in the WWE.

SHEER MAG’s politically charged, debut full-length Need To Feel Your Love also turned heads. Rolling Stone describes, “Explosive riffing and seemingly encyclopedic grasp of popular music styles – a typical Sheer Mag song crams a compendium of classic-rock, power-pop and garage-punk ideas.” NPR claims their music is “not only a lesson in listening and learning from rock ‘n’ roll masters, but from our humanity.”

Fury and Red Death top off the bill. Check below for a full list of dates (more TBA) and media. All tickets are onsale this Friday

The band’s new album – which was recorded at MANA Recording Studios with producer/engineer Erik Rutan (Cannibal Corpse, Soilent Green, Belphegor, Hate Eternal) – promises to be another aggressive, powerful record in their catalog, that will surely make history once again.

PiercingMetal Thoughts: I’ve only ever casually followed Cannibal Corpse over the years and can say that they are a force to be reckoned with and one that helped form the way that a genre proliferated. I’m going to mark my area date down so I don’t miss them and you readers can let me know what you think about this tour down in the comments section below. See you next time.
