Los Angeles, CA – Even since getting their goth on with “Black Lipstick” and welcoming the industrial mayhem of this “Brave New World,” music fans have been patiently waiting to hear the entirety of Powerman 5000’s stellar new studio album, The Noble Rot. Now that wait is over as the album has been officially released on all formats including streaming, CD and glorious colored vinyl. Frontman Spider One has called TNR one of the most adventurous and stylistically diverse albums the band has ever released, and judging from the reception of the pre-release singles, fans have embraced the new direction.
Spider had this to share about the album’s release, “The Noble Rot is about facing mortality, self-destruction, not learning from history and the promise of something great rising from the darkest of situations. Seems fitting that we are releasing this one in 2020.”
The singer also announced that he will be taking part in Reddit’s “Ask Me Anything” series on the album’s release day, getting grilled by fans on everything from the band’s long history in the music industry to Spider’s experience in the visual arts, directing and editing all of the band’s videos as well as the mockumentary series Death Valley which aired on MTV in 2011.
Last but not least, the band has been selected by Spotify as the cover artist for that platform’s wildly popular New Metal Tracks playlist with nearly half a million subscribers.
