The official video for POWERMAN 5000‘s new song “Cult Leader” can be seen below. The track is taken from the band’s upcoming album, “New Wave”, which will be released on October 27 via Pavement Entertainment.
“Cult Leader” pumps up the propaganda with the ultimate theme song for the Follow Me Age. The song also makes a commentary on society’s modern vices. Vocalist Spider One says: “We live in a culture of cults. It’s not just Charles Manson or Jim Jones anymore. It’s Trump, Taylor Swift, Kardashian, Kilo f**king Ren or whatever! It’s social media. Subscribe! Like! Follow! Follow! Follow! I’m just throwing my hat into the ring to be your Cult Leader. #drinkthekoolaid”
“New Wave” is POWERMAN 5000‘s eleventh official release since forming in 1992 and continues the strides and success, from their platinum-selling album “Tonight The Stars Revolt!” to their most recent chart-topping single in 2014, “How To Be A Human”.
Regarding the overall sound of the follow-up to 2014’s “Builders Of The Future”, Spider One said: “We went a bit dirtier on this one. Ripped it up more than the last couple of records. One of the goals was to recreate the noise of the live show. Keep in the chaos.”
On the topic of the new album title, Spider said: “New Wave? Are we a new wave band? Well, I would say that we have always had more in common with DEVO than DIO.”
POWERMAN 5000‘s legacy continues to push the boundaries of rock, metal, industrial, rap and punk to create innovative and groundbreaking releases time and time again. With songs like “David F**king Bowie”, “Cult Leader” and “Sid Vicious In A Dress”, the new album is sure to please longtime fans, as well as turn the heads of many more to come.
