Texas' POWER TRIP has released their official video for "Executioner's Tax (Swing Of The Axe)" through an exclusive premiere at Noisey. The band continues to tour the planet in support of their Nightmare Logic LP, as they are currently torching the West Coast of North America and will head to Europe in the coming weeks.
POWER TRIP's new video for their hit single "Executioner's Tax (Swing Of The Axe)" takes us front and center, into the eye of what is guaranteed to be a perfect storm time and time again. The footage, captured at a spirited hometown show in Dallas melts with clips of political propaganda which encompass vocalist Riley Gale's lyrics that hone in on the devaluation of human life by those who've gained power through money and politics. The video was directed by Andy Capper (Vice, Noisey) with director of photography Joel Pront, and editor Andrew Betsch.

After a wild, sold out East Coast/Midwest tour, POWER TRIP is currently taking over West Coast this month with Destruction Unit. Highlights include Los Angeles, Portland, Denver, Vancouver, and more just before they head to Europe with Napalm Death and Brujeria. Check below for a full list of dates.
POWER TRIP hit hard last month with their most powerful effort yet; Nightmare Logic. Released to high critical acclaim and anticipation, their sophomore release does not disappoint. With hooks and tightness rivaling greats like Metallica, Pantera, or Pentagram, POWER TRIP punishes fans not only sonically but with pure songwriting skill. Nightmare Logic proves to be one of the year's smartest and most crucial releases to spawn from the metal and punk scenes.
"You don't need to be a metalhead to have a blast with Nightmare Logic... POWER TRIP's fist-pumping choruses, ricocheting grooves, and ample charm are so animated that they leave us with something addictive and, well, fun." - Pitchfork / Best New Music
"...possesses a certain monolithic quality Lemmy would admire: a massive rawness and a sludgy, heavy hopelessness that thrashes with punk immediacy and metal intricacy...it's a track preparing for war." - NPR
"...one of the most highly anticipated records in aggressive music in recent memory..." - The New Yorker
