The unstoppable POWER TRIP has been confirmed as the opening act for a massive US Winter Tour, the crew set to slam the States supporting Lamb Of God, Anthrax and Deafheaven in January and February.
While the Texas-based crossover outfit finds themselves playing live as much as possible, steadily touring with hordes of smaller, underground bands as well as internationally-known acts, the newly-confirmed upcoming trek supporting Lamb Of God, Anthrax and Deafheaven is inarguably the most high-profile live venture for POWER TRIP to date. The diverse, crushing package tour begins January 15th in Pittsburgh, then blazes its way through the East Coast, back through the Midwest into the deep South and out to the West Coast, the final show to take place February 12th in Los Angeles, with twenty shows confirmed at press time.

Surging with a modernized translation of the works of mandatory pioneers Nuclear Assault, the Cro-Mags and Leeway, POWER TRIP‘s Southern Lord-released debut LP Manifest Decimation hurtles the band’s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos direct at the jugular with crossover intensity that sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite. With nearly thirty-five minutes of thrashing violence, Manifest Decimation wages war on all in its earshot, much like the POWER TRIP name has become synonymous with in the wake of their extreme live shows.
POWER TRIP is currently in the studio recording new material. Stand by for additional updates in the weeks ahead as things develop.
