(New York, NY) - Metal/hip-hop all-stars Powerflo have just been confirmed for a West Coast run of dates as support for P.O.D.  This tour marks the band's first series of dates.  Of the upcoming trek Powerflo's Bill Graziadei commented, ""We're so amped to get on tour and show everyone what Powerflo is made of! To be with our homies in P.O.D., that takes the cake!  See you in da pit!"  Please see below for P.O.D. tour dates with more to be announced, including a headlining date in advance of the tour in Los Angeles at The Viper Room.

 

In other news, Powerflo's first single, "Resistance," has been tapped as the latest theme song for WWE NXT, the weekly wrestling battle show on the WWE network.  The song was featured for the first time in last week's broadcast and will continue to be part of this season's programming.  To check out the "Resistance"/WWE NXT promotional reel, please click here.

 

Powerflo's self-titled debut album is due out June 23rd via New Damage Records.  The album is receiving early rave reviews with Metal Injection dubbing it "killer, heavy groove rap metal".    Click here to access the album's cover art.  To pre-order the album via iTunes, please click here; those who preorder the album digitally will receive "Resistance" and "Victim Of Circumstance" as instant grat tracks.  To pre-order the album via New Damage Records, please click here and via Pledge Music here.  Both New Damage and Pledge pre-orders include bundle options with various exclusive limited items including snapback caps, rolling papers, signed vinyl, test presses, exclusive performances and more.

 

Melding hip-hop, metal, punk, and rock into a potent offering, Powerflo lives up to its name. The vision of Grammy-Award-nominated multiplatinum Cypress Hill rapper Sen Dog, downset guitarist Rogelio "Roy" Lozano, Biohazard vocalist and guitarist Billy Graziadei, ex-Fear Factory bassist Christian Olde Wolbers, and Worst drummer Fernando Schaefer, Powerflo draws on their powerhouse resume to collectively smash boundaries with POWERFLO.  The album is produced by Josh Lynch and Billy Graziadei, mixed by Jay Baumgardner (Godsmack, Papa Roach, Helmet) and mastered by Maor Applebaum (Faith No More, Halford, Adrenaline Mob) at Maor Applebaum Mastering.

 

The origins of Powerflo can be traced back over more than two decades as the members of the band would collaborate on numerous occasions. In addition to both Cypress Hill and Biohazard appearing on the landmark platinum-selling Judgment Night Soundtrack, Sen Dog delivered a cameo on Biohazard's STATE OF THE WORLD ADDRESS in 1993, while Christian both guested on Cypress Hill's chart-topping 2000 double-album SKULLS & BONES, which Roy also guested on, and 2001's STONE RAIDERS in addition to performing with the group countless times. In 2015, longtime friend Roy played demos for Sen on a ride to the airport.  The music immediately spoke to the rapper and thus Powerflo was born.
