Powerman 5000 have signed with Pavement Entertainment for their next album, New Wave. Says vocalist Spider One on it: “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.” As for the title, he offered: “‘New Wave?’ Are we a new wave band? Well, I would say that we have always had more in common with Devo than Dio.”
