Power Trip Premieres Video For “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)”

Texas’ Power Trip has released their official video for “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)” through an exclusive premiere at Nosey. The band continues to tour the planet in support of their Nightmare Logic LP, as they are currently torching the West Coast of North America and will head to Europe in the coming weeks.


Power Trip’s new video for their hit single “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)” takes us front and center, into the eye of what is guaranteed to be a perfect storm time and time again. The footage, captured at a spirited hometown show in Dallas melts with clips of political propaganda which encompass vocalist Riley Gale’s lyrics that hone in on the devaluation of human life by those who’ve gained power through money and politics. The video was directed by Andy Capper (Vice, Noisey) with director of photography Joel Pront, and editor Andrew Betsch.

Power Trip Stream “Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)”, Announce More Shows

Power Trip strike again with their second single “Executioner’s Tax (Swing of the Axe)” which lyricist Riley Gale explains was written in relation to “Christian European countries where it was common for the person sentenced to death to have a chance to repent. If they did, they were given a bag of coins, silver or alike.  For if they were particularly vile or the executioner felt lazy, it may take more than one swing of that axe to get that person’s head off and that kind of death is certainly one you’d want to be as painless as possible.”
