POWER TRIP unveil title track from ‘Nightmare Logic’ coming on Southern Lord Feb 24

POWER TRIP give us one last glimpse into Nightmare Logic before it’s out this month on Southern Lord. The ripping title track does not disappoint – proving POWER TRIP grander than ever. With hooks and tightness rivaling greats like Pantera or Pentagram, “Nightmare Logic” punishes fans not only sonically but with pure songwriting skill.

POWER TRIP execute music with raw energy. They’ve trimmed the fat on every reference they pull from – whether that’s Hardcore, Metal or Punk – to make music that actually cuts in 2017. Hailing from Dallas, the band have toured the world relentlessly for years. Their musical proficiency, perfect song structure, rich tones, fierce riffs, delivery and collective attitude has seeded them as one of today’s most prolific acts in any astute or heavy genre.

Gale’s lyrics reflect that aggression by honing in on the devaluation of human life by those who’ve gained power through money and politics. By creating a broad dissection of human suffering above reproach from personal agendas, the lyrics attempt to unify and inspire listeners. Coming from the hardcore world, where every band vaguely fights “the man”, wants to live free and break down the walls, POWER TRIP noticeably stands out. Instead of skirting around the fetishization of fighting back, Nightmare Logic focuses in on real oppression felt by many all over the world, whether that’s fighting addiction and the pharmaceutical industry (Waiting Around to Die) or right-wing religious conservatives (Crucifixation). Taking cues from Discharge and Crass in Margaret Thatcher’s UK, Nightmare Logic delivers poignant social information directly into those homes engulfed in the sour turn of global politics towards right-wing agendas.

Through the years POWER TRIP have boldly surprised their broad fanbase by performing alongside less obvious artists – closing the gap that in 2017’s social climate desperately needs to be filled.  One month you can catch them playing with Title Fight, Merchandise or Big Freedia, the next you can catch them on a long tour with Napalm Death or Anthrax. They’re a powerful storm of aggression, gaining more and more momentum with true, honest spirit. Their next massive tour kicks off this month. Dates include an east coast run with Iron Reagan and west coast with Destruction Unit.
