POWERMAN 5000 frontman Spider One (real name: Michael Cummings) was interviewed on the December 29, 2010 edition of "Radioactive Metal". You can now listen to the chat using the audio player below.
"Radioactive Metal" is broadcast on Pure Rock Radio Thursday evenings at 8:00 p.m. EST.
POWERMAN 5000's "Super Villain" video was directed by Robert Hall ("Laid to Rest", "Fear Clinic"), and accompanied by award-winning cinematographer and director of photography Brandon Trost ("Halloween II", "Crank 2"). The clip features actor Johnathon Schaech ("Quarantine", "Living Hell", "That Thing You Do") as the "Super Villain".
"Somewhere On The Other Side of Nowhere" sold 2,000 copies in the United States in its first week of release, according to Nielsen SoundScan. Issued on October 6, 2009 via Mighty Loud!/Fontana, the collection finds the band returning to the hard groove of their earlier work which included hits like "When Worlds Collide" and "Nobody's Real". "We made this record with a clear vision and a purpose," explained Spider. "We wanted to reclaim a sound we created and represent certain influences as only a band like POWERMAN 5000 can. While writing, we would watch 'Godzilla' or 'Ultraman' films to ensure the sonics were on point. We knew that this record needed to sound like the footsteps of a giant robot!"
