Press release:

That Spider is one stubborn gentleman. Whereas many others would have packed it in due to record label collapses and band members coming and going, Spider has stuck to his guns, kept Powerman 5000 alive, and as a result, has retained a massive and dedicated fan base worldwide. Case in point, the group’s new song, “Super Villain” (which can be heard at http://pm5k.mightyloud.com). All it took was the appearance of this electro-ditty on the group’s official site and Myspace page to spark what has now turned into the return of PM5K - with plans for extensive touring throughout 2009. Promoters are reporting PM5K fans are coming out in full force and then some.

PM5K first came together in the early ‘90s, and has issued such futuristic-sci fi-metal classicks as 1995’s ‘The Blood Splat Rating System,’ 1999’s million-selling ‘Tonight the Stars Revolt!’, 2001’s ‘Anyone for Doomsday?’, 2003’s ‘Transform,’ and 2006’s ‘Destroy WhatYou Enjoy.’ In addition, Spider and company has performed alongside some of rock’s biggest names, including Korn, Marilyn Manson, and aspart of Ozzfest. "I remember standing on the convention floor at the 2008 San Diego Comic Con,” recalls Spider. “I was surrounded by ten thousand or more freaks, geeks, and weirdos - all obsessed with robots, monsters and super heroes. I thought to myself, ‘These are my people and Powerman 5000 is their band!’ I went home completely energized, and immediately started work on the new record."
