Power Trip Cancel Their Performance at Dark Lord Day Due To A Bicycle Accident

Texas thrashers Powertrip have just posted an announcement on their Instagram stating that a member of the band -- it’s unclear who -- was in a serious bicycle accident and therefore they have to cancel their upcoming performance at Dark Lord Day festival in Chicago, which they were scheduled to play alongside High On Fire, Sacred Reich, Nuclear Assault, The Atlas Moth, and others.

The announcement, driven home with a cheeky usage of the classic “peeing Calvin” cartoon, reads: “ATTENTION: We’re stunned and sad to announce that we’ve been forced to cancel our set at Dark Lord Day. One of us was in a serious bicycle accident two days ago, but even after still wanting to play the show, was told by doctors this morning that he is not cleared to fly and requires immediate surgery. He’s going to be alright but we do not know much more than that. We apologize to anyone who was excited to see us; this was a festival we’ve wanted to play for years, featuring two of our most respected influences in Nuclear Assault and @sacredreichofficial. Unfortunately right now the health and well-being of every member of this group is our biggest concern. In the meantime, we’re working out a killer surprise to make up for this show in the future, and we will be spending the rest of the month healing and stabilizing ourselves to ensure we will not have to cancel any more shows. Our next shows are May 30th in San Antonio and June 1st in Dallas. European dates announced soon.”

Looks like Power Trip will still be hitting the road for their tour dates following Dark Lord Day, though. We hope that means whichever member hurt himself will be on the mend quickly!


30 - San Antonio, TX @ Paper Tiger


1 - Dallas, TX @ Gas Monkey Bar ‘n’ Grill
