When you go into a new band, name is key. At least at first. You see, if you see a band with a powerful, simple name, you can latch onto it and say “_____ fucking owns.” It’s that simple. When I was introduced to Power, I immediately heard that their music falls directly in with their sound: they are Powerful. Their Black Flag-influenced hardcore is a thundering array of stunning aggravation. I recently caught up with vocalist Evan Somerhiser and I am stoked to premiere a song off of the bands upcoming release Heavy Muscle. Get chu some.
Well, you can’t discount Poison Idea for being dishonest. The band has called off all of their upcoming tour dates and have gone on an immediate indefinite hiatus. The band has sited “some health/sanity issues, personal matters and addressing some unfortunate band behavior.” So, at least they were up front about their whole situation to an extent. We don’t know the exact reason for the hiatus, but it’s gotta be something serious. Farewell.
The band recently released their new album Confuse & Conquer on Southern Lord.

It’s a cool video and a great song, so check it out below. Continue reading
