In keeping with the theme of starting over and transforming, Powerman 5000 decided to pass on the summer’s big-ticket hard rock fests in support of their just released album ‘Transform’. “We’ve done Ozzfest, we’ve done Summer Sanitarium,” frontman Spider One tells RollingStone.com. “For better or worse, we’re not part of one of those this year. We’re gonna take it out and be the band that plays some smaller shows for cheap money. While everybody else is playing for $85 a ticket, we’ll hopefully be there for $10 a ticket. Having been out of the scene for a couple of years, it’s important for us to just play in front of 700 kids, some smaller shows, and rebuild that identity and trust with our core audience.”
