While their debut LP, Manifest Decimation, raids the 2013 year-end list parade, and following their massive North American tour with Terror, Code Orange Kids and more, Texas crossover squad, POWER TRIP will headline Houston’s annual Fallcore Fest alongside Die Young, Will To Live, Ivy League and a pile of others this Saturday, December 7th.
Just a week later POWER TRIP heads out to Colorado for the first Denver Black Sky gathering on December 14th, joining the pulverizing lineup of Dying Fetus, Ghoul, Exhumed, Skinless, Mammoth Grinder, Weekend Nachos, Iron Reagan, Primitive Man among others at the all-day barrage. From there they’ll plow through the Southeastern states with new shows in Oklahoma, Texas, Louisiana, Florida, Georgia and Alabama through December 23rd, touring with Mammoth Grinder, Iron Reagan and Windhand throughout the trek.
Additional new gigs have been planned in January as well, with POWER TRIP now set to hit the Northeastern states, making stops in Holyoke Brooklyn New York and Philadelphia on their way to take part in the second day of the A389 X Bash in Baltimore January 18th performing that night with All Out War, Weekend Nachos, Noisem, Pick Your Side, Homewrecker, Empire Of Rats, a sole Bloodlet reunion set, the one-time reunion of Integrity’s Systems Overload lineup.
POWER TRIP‘s “steel, speed and destruction” ethos and crossover intensity sounds like it was excavated from a 1987 time capsule with sixteen tons of radioactive dynamite. With nearly thirty-five minutes of thrashing violence in the tradition of crossover pioneers Nuclear Assault, the Cro-Mags and Leeway, their debut LP, Manifest Decimation, was recorded by Arthur Rizk and Daniel Schmuck and produced, mixed, and mastered by Arthur Rizk at Solomon’s Gate in Philadelphia. Released by Southern Lord in June 2013 waging war on all in its earshot, much like the POWER TRIP name has become synonymous with in the wake of their rabid live shows.
