Power Trip to Embark on Extensive US Tour

Powertrip Tour Riotous act Power Trip is set to embark on an extensive US tour in support of their upcoming Nightmare Logic EP.

In conjunction with the album release and tour, the band has released a new track, titled, “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe).”
Check out the new song here:



“Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe)” was written about “Christian European countries where it was common for the person sentenced to death to have a chance to repent,” offered Power Trip’s Riley Gale. “If they did, they were given a bag of coins, silver or alike. For if they were particularly vile or the executioner felt lazy, it may take more than one swing of that axe to get that person’s head off and that kind of death is certainly one you’d want to be as painless as possible. Hence, the Executioner’s Tax to ensure a strong, lights-out kind of death. It’s more subtly an allegory about that being the motive for a lot of people these days and how the people that feed and heal us (The Executioner and The Priest). They love to get us addicted, fat, sick – so they can feed us, medicate us and nearly quite literally kill many of us. We pay for pleasure of making it taste good or being numb to it all. We are all slowly paying our way out and our lives are built around the Executioner’s Tax – hopefully going out quick and easy. We subconsciously crave for our end, a spoiled one.”
