POWERMAN 5000 will release their new album, "Destroy What You Enjoy", on August 1 via DRT Entertainment. The album was produced by Mudrock (AVENGED SEVENFOLD, GODSMACK) — who also co-produced the band's major label debut, "Mega!! Kung Fu Radio" (1997) — and was recorded at the Hobby Shop in Eagle Rock, CA. The album was mixed by Dave Schiffman (AUDIOSLAVE, JOHNNY CASH, SYSTEM OF A DOWN).
"For this one, we dove both feet in and pretty much tracked this thing live," POWERMAN 5000 vocalist Spider One recently told SouthBendTribune.com. "It has a much more punk rock feel to it."
"The sound that you hear on 'Destroy What You Enjoy', is the sound of a real rock 'n roll band," Spider One said in a press release. "The drums aren't perfect, the guitars feedback and the vocals don't always find the right note. In other words, it's the best record we've ever made."
Joining Spider One in the band's current lineup are drummer Adrian Ost, bassist Siggy Siursen and guitarists Terry Corso (formerly with ALIEN ANT FARM) and Johnny Heatley (formerly with HALF-COCKED, the first band Spider One signed to Megatronic when it was being distributed by DreamWorks Records). Songtitles set to appear on the follow-up to 2003's "Transform" include first single "Wild World", as well as "Return to the City of the Dead" and "Enemies".
Listen for "Wild World" to hit radio June 19, followed by a national tour beginning July 7.
