Dallas, Texas-based thrashers POWER TRIP today officially announce their induction into the Southern Lord family, confirming a multi-album deal with the label.
Having amassed a diehard following since their 2008 formation through their crushing live shows, as well as several compilation inclusions, demos and EPs released via Lockin’ Out, Withdrawal Records, Triple B Records and other indie labels, Power Trip channel the old-school crossover energy of legendary acts like Cro-Mags, Nuclear Assault and Leeway through modern thrash warfare.
This weekend Power Trip will invade the sweltering Chaos In Tejas fiesta in Austin, Texas for two crushing shows, performing Saturday night alongside their allies in Toxic Holocaust and Midnight, and Sunday flanking Boston Strangler, Rival Mob and The Abused. And as previously announced, Power Trip will also terrorize all three Texas shows of the forthcoming Southern Lord label Summer package tour, joining now-labelmates Enabler, Burning Love, Martyrdöd and Black Breath.

6/2 Austin, TX @ Beerland – Chaos In Tejas w/ Toxic Holocaust, Midnight
6/3 Austin, TX @ Red 7 – @ Chaos In Tejas w/ Boston Strangler, Rival Mob, The Abused
