It's definitely a big honor for us to be a part of the Relapse roster, being among all bands who we look up to & work with people who are devoted to the scene. We're thrilled about all this & can't wait to get the new record out & to see all you crazy mofos on tour!"

There has been a change to one of Powerman 5000's upcoming East coast shows. Apparently, the owner of Bombshelter in Manchester, NH had double-booked the club for the night of the show on April 16, which means that the band has had to change venues in order to keep the show date.
The show will now be at Mark's Showplace in Manchester on the same date, April 16.
Unfortunately, this is a 21 and over venue, but for those of you who are younger, the other two shows in Haverhill and Revere are all ages and only about 30 or so minutes away.
The new Manchester date should go on sale next week.
The upcoming tour schedule is:
Mar. 22 Chico, CA - Senator Theater
Mar. 23 Sparks, NV - New Oasis
Mar. 24 Orangevale, CA - The Boardwalk
Mar. 25 San Francisco, CA - The Pound at Pier 96
Mar. 26 Madera(Fresno), CA Madera District Fair
Mar. 29 Santa Ana, CA - The Galaxy
