POWER TRIP has announced the first leg of their North American tour kicking off next February in support of their highly-anticipated sophomore release, Nightmare Logic, set for February release through Southern Lord. Iron Reagan will join POWER TRIP for their journey down the East Coast and through the Midwest, including shows in New York City, Chicago, Toronto, Montreal, and more. Tickets go on sale this Friday, December 16th at 12pm EST. Stay tuned for a second announcement with West Coast dates to follow soon.
Hailing from Dallas, POWER TRIP‘s raw energy, musical proficiency, perfect song structure, rich tones, fierce riffs, persecution, and collective attitude has seeded them as one of the most prolific staples in the metal, punk and hardcore scenes. Nightmare Logic was produced by Arthur Rizk, engineered by Arthur Rizk and Matthew Barnhart, and mastered by Joel Grind.

“possesses a certain monolithic quality Lemmy would admire: a massive rawness and a sludgy, heavy hopelessness that thrashes with punk immediacy and metal intricacy…it’s a track preparing for war.” – NPR
“Their approach to metal and hardcore is no-nonsense – no gimmicks… just intense riffing and songwriting” – Clrvynt
“Power Trip has lost absolutely none of its vicious bite” – Metal Injection
“equal parts righteous bloodletting and revenge fantasy… Power Trip have always found their sweet spot in the reverb-heavy fog of 80’s metal” – Pitchfork
