Power Trip Spreading ‘Nightmare Logic’ Across North America With Spring 2018 Tour


Power Trip dominated 2017, without question. In addition to releasing the year’s best metal album with Nightmare Logic, they compounded it with smart touring decisions, equally playing to the metal and hardcore crowds that make up their DNA. They’re looking to continue their wave of success in 2018 with a recently announced spring headlining tour.

Along their trek, they’ll be playing with Philly DIY rock band Sheer Mag, California hardcore band Fury and D.C. hardcore group Red Death. It’s a far different slate of bands than their 2017 Cannibal Corpse and Obituary treks, but it speaks to the fluidity of Power Trip’s music. Sheer Mag takes classic, 70s sounding rock n’ roll and imbues it with the presence of singer Tina Halladay. It’s not for everyone, but it’s an inspired choice that keeps the bill fresh.

The tour kicks off April 27 in Jacksonville, Fla. as part of the Welcome to Rockville festival, and heads into Ft. Lauderdale for Fort Rock. From there, Sheer Mag and the other bands join on for a headlining date at Atlanta’s Masquerade. The tour hits a variety of dates throughout North America, including a healthy amount of dates in Canada and a stop at Rock on the Range. The tour ends in the band’s home state of Texas in Austin on June 7.

Power Trip rocked the 2017 Loudwire Music Awards with performances of their own “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe)” and a cover of Motorhead‘s “We Are the Road Crew” with Hatebreed‘s Jamey Jasta, while also taking home the prize for Metal Song of the Year. The group also nabbed the No. 1 spot on Loudwire’s staff Best Metal Album of the Year list, capping off why they dominated 2017.
