Power Trip Releases New Music Video: See it Here

Texas’ Power Trip has released their official video for “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)” today. The band continues to tour the planet in support of their Nightmare Logic LP, as they are currently torching the West Coast of North America and will head to Europe in the coming weeks.

Power Trip’s new video for their hit single “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)” takes us front and center, into the eye of what is guaranteed to be a perfect storm time and time again. The footage, captured at a spirited hometown show in Dallas, Texas melts with clips of political propaganda which encompass vocalist Riley Gale’s lyrics that hone in on the devaluation of human life by those who’ve gained power through money and politics. The video was directed by Andy Capper (Vice, Noisey) with director of photography Joel Pront, and editor Andrew Betsch.






After a wild, sold out East Coast/Midwest tour, Power Trip is currently taking over West Coast this month with Destruction Unit. Highlights include Los Angeles, Portland, Denver, Vancouver, and more just before they head to Europe with Napalm Death and Brujeria. Check below for a full list of dates.

Power Trip hit hard last month with their most powerful effort yet; Nightmare Logic. Released to high critical acclaim and anticipation, their sophomore release does not disappoint. With hooks and tightness rivaling greats like Metallica, Pantera, or Pentagram, POWER TRIP punishes fans not only sonically but with pure songwriting skill. Nightmare Logic proves to be one of the year’s smartest and most crucial releases to spawn from the metal and punk scenes.
