Power Trip Announce Return of the Evil Beat Festival Featuring Insane Cutting-Edge Lineup

In 2018, crossover thrash heroes Power Trip threw the Evil Beat, Vol. 1 festival in Dallas — their hometown — and it was a smash success. Today, October 10th, the band announced a follow-up event, dubbed fittingly The Return of the Evil Beat, set to go down at the South Side Ballroom in Dallas on January 11th, 2020. As you’d expect from a fest curated by Riley Gale and Co., it’ll feature an array of some the finest names in metal, punk, hardcore, post-punk and indie, including Carcass, Vio-Lence, Deafheaven, Razor, Sheer Mag, Drab Majesty, Prurient, Warthog, Torche, Wiccans, Red Death, True Widow, Red Death, Special Interest, Mil-Spec, Dress Code and, of course, Power Trip themselves. Tickets are on presale now using the code “evilbeat” and will hit general sale at 10 a.m. CST. One dollar of every ticket sold will be donated to PLUS1 and given to “organizations bringing dignity, equity, and access to communities who need it.” See the festival poster below, as well as Power Trip’s extensive upcoming itinerary.
