Masterpiece Machine

Hear Power Trip & Fucked Up Members Join Forces in Masterpiece Machine


Power Trip frontman Riley Gale has joined Fucked Up‘s Mike Haliechuk and Jonah Falco on a new project dubbed Masterpiece Machine. That outfit are set to release their self-titled debut EP on April 17th via Triple B Records/Quality Control.

The first single from the industrial-tinged endeavor, “Rotting Fruit“, can be found below. Its origins date back to some unused material from the sessions for Fucked Up‘s latest album. “Dose Your Dreams“.

The track “Letting You In On A Secret” will also be featured on the EP, which you can pre-order here. Revolver premiered the track and are running a new interview with the aforementioned players at this location. Gale told the publication of his involvement:

“For me, this couldn’t be further out of my comfort zone. Before discovering stuff like Big Black and Godflesh in my late teens, my only real flirtation with “industrial” music was maybe the Mortal Kombat soundtrack. Before adulthood, “digital” and “guitar” music fell into two distinct different categories.

As an adult, my tastes have evolved and I love lots of music that blends analog and digital tones, but a band where industrial music is a primary influence was not something I ever saw myself joining. I don’t play an instrument, I know virtually nothing about electronics, but I like to think I have a good sense for good music.

And I knew these Masterpiece Machine songs were good music. Still, this was almost entirely uncharted territory for me. The only mile marker I really had was that my vocals would be good enough to get me into the band, and I guess it was.”
