POWER TRIP slay us with “Firing Squad,” the first new single from their anxiously awaited sophomore release Nightmare Logic, which will see release February 22nd through Southern Lord. “Firing Squad” was debuted at NPR magazine, who described that the record, “possesses a certain monolithic quality Lemmy would admire: a massive rawness and a sludgy, heavy hopelessness that thrashes with punk immediacy and metal intricacy…it’s a track preparing for war.”
