POWER TRIP
POWER TRIP
Power Trip slay us with the first new single “Firing Squad” from their anxiously awaited sophomore release Nightmare Logic, which finally sees light February 24 on Southern Lord. “Firing Squad” debuted via NPR who’ve described it as possessing “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.”
Power Trip are a real band - like no other. Their raw energy, musical proficiency, perfect song structure, rich tones, fierce riffs, persecution and collective attitude has seeded them as one of the most prolific underground staples in the U.S. metal, punk and hardcore scenes.
Power Trip have relentlessly toured the world for years now with the likes of Anthrax, Lamb Of God, Cro-Mags, Negative Approach, Turnstile, Backtrack, Eyehategod, Bane, Off! and having performed with literally countless others, in addition to pummeling audiences at major festivals all over the US, EU and beyond.
DESTRUCTION UNIT
Destruction Unit are a band of trans-radical psychedelic desert dwellers, dug up from the sonic landfills of the cosmos, who have built a reputation for both mesmerizing and terrorizing crowds with their sheer power and intensity. Like running head first into a spinning wall of sound, they have been described by the press as "a band who felt more like a horror movie than a band … With guitars that were distorted beyond belief and acted more as auxiliary noise machines than instruments" (Transmission Entertainment)
and "Suicide-meets-Chrome-meets-Hawkwind-meets-Screamers-meets-the-killer-last-scene-reveals-in-all-the-alien-episodes-of-The Twilight Zone" (LA Weekly) or more simply put, "punk rock" (Austin Town Hall). However, Destruction Unit's brand of feedback worship and heavy psych does not sacrifice songwriting or catchiness; to the contrary, "it's their subtleties—distant bubbling murmurs of noise, faint guitar noodling—that make for the best hooks." (Chicago Reader) The current lineup features R. Rousseau (Reatards, The Wongs, Tokyo Electron) on Guitar and Vocals, brother Rusty Rousseau (Digital Leather) on bass, N. Nappa (Marshstepper, Nihilism) on Guitar, J. Aurelius (Pigeon Religion, Marshstepper, Avon Ladies) on Guitar and J. Keefer (Naive) on drums.

The band originated in the early 2000's and featured R. Rousseau with Jay Reatard (Reatards, Lost Sounds, angry angles) and Alicja Trout (Lost Sounds, Black Sunday). The three appeared together on the first release, 2000's My Disease 7", as well as the 2006 record Death To The New Flesh and Destruction Unit's debut LP, Self Destruction Of A Man. Destruction Unit were featured onThe Screamers tribute The Necessary Effect, Screamers Songs Interpreted.
