If you've ever wished you could cuddle up to a plushie version of Power Trip's thrash classic "Executioner’s Tax (Swing Of The Axe)," now's your chance! Plushie Love has just dropped their "Executioner’s Tax" bear whose adorable face is covered up by an executioner's hood and wields a bloody axe. So I guess it depends on what your definition of "cute" is.
Anyway, grab one here for $50. And yes – the Power Trip Twitter account retweeted Plushie Love's promo video for the bear. So this is legit.
As for what the plan is for Power Trip, guitarist Blaze Ibanez recently told Daniel Dekay of Knotfest that he and drummer Chris Ulsh have been working on new material. Ibanez said they're "just working on stuff and and at some point the stuff we're working on will be heard" before adding "There's… I guess you can call it a record. There's a bunch of stuff out there. That's really all I can say. I don't know. I can't really say too much."
"We've been working really hard on it. Me and [Chris], we have great chemistry and the same thing we've always done when we make records together. The same vibe is there. I'm really proud of the stuff we've written together. So I'm looking forward to that. I don't know when everything's gonna happen, but I'm looking forward to it."
