That’s right, pancake puss.
Dallas-based thrash outfit Power Trip has officially joined the Southern Lord family.
The band confirmed this week that they’ve inked a multi-album deal with the label.
The band formed in 2008 and have issued a ton of demos and EPs through Lockin’ Out, Withdrawal Records, Triple B Records and other indie labels.
A press release claims Power Trip “channel the old-school crossover energy of legendary acts like Cro-Mags, Nuclear Assault and Leeway through modern thrash warfare.”
I like the way that sounds.
This weekend Power Trip will invade the sweltering Chaos In Tejas festival in Austin, Texas for two crushing shows, performing Saturday night alongside their allies in Toxic Holocaust and Midnight, and Sunday flanking Boston Strangler, Rival Mob and The Abused.
The band will also be touring this summer with Enabler, Burning Love, Martyrdöd and Black Breath.
Of course, a new deal means a new record, so the band will be hitting the studio soon to track an album that should be out before year’s — and world’s — end.
