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.”

PiercingMetal Thoughts: So I’m going to be straight with you here and say that have no background in the bands on this package at all. I’ve heard the name of Power Trip for sure over the last few months but the gigs that they were appearing on I just wasn’t able to be a part of. I’m going to try to fix this with their show in Brooklyn but its still pretty far away considering that 2018 has just launched for us. What do you readers think of this tour? Is it something that you will be excited to attend? Let me know down in the comments section below.
