CONTEST CLOSED! Win 2 VIP Tickets to Powerman 5000’s Album Release Party for Builders of the Future at The Viper Room in LA!



Post Thumb:


Win 2 VIP Tickets to Powerman 5000's Album Release Party for Builders of the Future at The Viper Room in LA!Powerman 5000 is back with what most likely will be the BIGGEST rock album of the year (we’ve been playing it here at Dread Central for weeks already, it’s that good), and here’s your chance to attend an intimate release party on the Sunset Strip.

Who said we don’t love you guys?

Taking place the evening of May 27th in conjunction with the release of their blistering new album Builders of the Future, Powerman 5000 will be wrapping up the American leg of their world tour (before taking off to Europe to play the largest festivals that continent has to offer) with an up-close and entirely personal live performance at the infamous Viper Room (8852 West Sunset Boulevard, West Hollywood, CA).

With the show expected to sell out in mere hours (at the time of this writing), Powerman 5000 singer Spider One and company (Richard Jazmin, Nick Quijano, Gustavo Aued and DJ Ratan) have been nice enough to provide us with two VIP tickets to the show, and we’re offering them up to our Dread Central readers.

Here’s how it works. Pre-order Powerman 5000’s Builders of the Future here (you’ll get a free digital download of the album’s first single “How To Be A Human” in the process, and you can also listen to that bad-ass track streaming below), and email your order receipt to including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS. We’ll select one lucky winner, and off you’ll go to the show.

This contest will end on at 12:01 AM PT on May 25th. Note that transportation is not included so LA residents or visitors only please!

Check out the remaining Stateside Powerman 5000 dates below, and for more info on the band and their upcoming European tour, visit their official site here and follow them on Twitter.

Expect a full album review here soon, although I’ll go out on a limb now and say this is the aural horror/sc-fi slab of electro-metal awesomeness that Rob Zombie’s been trying to muster ever since Hellbilly Deluxe. (No offense, Rob; it must run in the family.)

    The day is finally here, kids! Adam Green’s Victor Crowley (review) is finally available everywhere, and we have a chance for you to score a copy on US along with a signed poster from Adam Green and Kane Hodder himself! How’s that for cool?

    To enter for your chance to win, just send an email to including your FULL NAME AND MAILING ADDRESS along with “Victor Crowley” in your subject line. We’ll take care of the rest.

    Victor Crowley was directed by Adam Green and stars Kane Hodder, Parry Shen, Brian Quinn, Laura Ortiz, and David Sheridan.

    Ten years ago, forty-nine people were brutally torn to pieces in Louisiana’s Honey Island Swamp. Over the past decade, lone survivor Andrew Yong’s claims that local legend Victor Crowley was responsible for the horrific massacre have been met with great controversy, but when a twist of fate puts him back at the scene of the tragedy, Crowley is mistakenly resurrected and Yong must face the bloodthirsty ghost from his past.
