POWERMAN 5000: Four-Track Preview Of New Album Available

POWERMAN 5000 has posted an e-card with a four-track preview of its upcoming album, "Destroy What You Enjoy". Check it out at this location. The record is set to hit stores on August 1 via DRT Entertainment.

The band recently shot a video for the lead single, "Wild World". "We shot most of it in an abandoned crack house," vocalist Spider commented. "It should be pretty glamorous." The video showcases the band's high-energy live performance, and is being co-directed by Jeff Stewart and Spider.

"Destroy What You Enjoy" 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).
