Powerman 5000 has released more music from its latest album.
The band released its new single ‘Footsteps and Voices’ just recently. The song is just the latest to be released from the band’s most recent album, 2017’s New Wave. It can be streamed now via Spotify and downloaded via Apple Music and Amazon. The song takes a decidedly rap rock vibe while lyrically, it seems to take on the matter of someone who is paranoid.
Front man Spider One notes in the song’s lead verse, “3:45, still staring at the ceiling/Locked up tight, but still you got that feeling/You’re not alone/There’s someone in your home/They’re breathing down your neck/They’re tapping in your phone/Ring, ring, ring/Now it’s 7 a.m./The sun’s coming up/And here we go again/All the people on the street/They been following you/Government conspiracies, they all coming true.” That seeming theme of paranoia continues in the second verse as Spider One notes, “tell yourself/That it’s all in your head/They couldn’t find you here/They couldn’t want you dead/But they do/They did it before/They’ll do it again/Shadows more fast/And I wouldn’t recommend/Running/And begging for your life’s unbecoming/The beat that you hear/Is not just from the drumming/You know that they’re close/From the stomp of their feet/You checked the back door/But not the back seat/They know your name/They’ve got your number/You’re not insane/Just going under.” The song’s third and final verse follows in similar fashion with note of whatever forces knowing “what you’re thinking when you’re trying not to think” and of doors being knocked down.
The combination of that lyrical content, coupled with the heavy, infectious musical arrangement at the center of the song makes this song another interesting offering from Powerman 5000. Audiences will get to hear this latest single and more songs from New Wave as the band continues its tour in support of the album.
The band will launch the next leg of its current New Wave tour next month, beginning July 13 in Dubuque, Iowa. It will run though August 3 in Oklahoma City, Oklahoma before the band takes some more time off to rest again.
