POWERMAN 5000 have inked a new record deal with DRT Entertainment. The band's recently completed new album, "Destroy What You Enjoy", was produced by Mudrock and is tentatively scheduled for release mid-July.

Commented frontman Spider One: "We produced and recorded [the new CD] alongside our old buddy Mudrock. He's the guy who co-produced 'Mega!! Kung Fu Radio' oh so many years ago. Recently he's had much success producing AVENGED SEVENFOLD and others. We couldn't be happier with these batch of tunes. . . I'm telling you, this is our best yet!!"

Joining Spider One in the band's current lineup are drummer Adrian Ost, bassist Siggy Siursen and guitarists Terry Corso (formerly with ALIEN ANT FARM) and Johnny Rock (formerly with HALF-COCKED, the first band Spider One signed to Megatronic when it was being distributed by DreamWorks Records). Songtitles set to appear on the follow-up to 2003's "Transform" include "Treat Me like a Stranger", "Heroes & Villains" and "Last Night on Earth".
