Powerman 5000 may not be the most widely known band in the world, but they know exactly what they are and what they want to be. The band has recently picked up speed again with their new songs, “How To Be Human”, “Modern World”, among others, but it is the fans that have allowed them to continue doing what they love.
Front man and lead vocals, Spider One said, “I never would have imagined that after all the albums, the band members, the ups-and downs of the always changing music business, I’d still be here doing this, which is thanks to our most diehard fans.”
While it is true that the music industry is in a bit of a flux to say the very least, Spider One and Powerman 5000 do not seem to care. “At the end of the day, we are the ones who will go out and play these songs in every city in America and everywhere else around the world we can…You have to live and breathe it. If you don’t believe in it, it’s easy for people to smell a rat. We can sit around and cry all day long about how the music business isn’t what it used to be, but none of that really matters. What matters is to have a blast being in a band.”
This fresh outlook along with an acceptance of what exactly it is that makes them special, may be the very thing that Powerman 5000 needs for their upcoming album. “We’ve replanted our flag as the weird, sci-fi, electronic band. This is what we are. This is what we do best.”
The new Powerman 5000 album, “Builders of the Future” is set to debut on May 27th. Until then you can catch them at our very own Ufest on April 12th. Make sure to get your tickets now!
