Powerman 5000 Gives New Album Update

POWERMAN 5000 are in the middle of a U.S. tour aimed at getting fans ready for a new as-yet-untitled album, which will be completed at Mad Oak Studios in frontman Spider One's hometown of Boston, MA during a brief hiatus from the tour after their April 17 show in Revere, MA. A majority of the album has already been recorded in Los Angeles. The CD will be released later this year on Spider One's Megatronic Records. Joining Spider One, drummer Adrian Ost, and bassist Siggy Siursen on tour and on the forthcoming album are guitarists Terry Corso (formerly with ALIEN ANT FARM) and Johnny Rock (formerly with HALF-COCKED, the first band Spider One signed to Megatronic when it was being distributed by DreamWorks Records), replacing founding member Adam 12, who left the band before the tour started (but will appear on the new album), and Mike "M.33" Tempesta, who left in 2004.

Spider One recently gave the inside scoop about what fans can expect from the new music on the band's web site: "Well, let's just say if you like calculated, bloated HOOBASTANK ballads or radio friendly nu metal or over produced, auto-tuned, cookie cutter rock, then you will hate the new POWERMAN 5000 record. Now, I'm NOT going to say the standard bullshit like, 'This is our heaviest, most brutal record yet.' That's so boring and predictable. Not to mention, not true. I will say that this record is raw and real. My goal on this one is to put together a bunch of songs that are meant to be played live. The kind of songs you could jam on with your friends in a garage band. I don't know, it is what it is. Rock 'n roll, punk rock, metal, whatever...it's PM5K. I'm digging it!!!"
