While fans await New Wave, PM5K is releasing the single “Sid Vicious in a Dress” via iTunes. Fans who pre-order New Wave digitally will receive an instant download of “Sid Vicious in a Dress\” to get a taste of what\’s to come.
In addition to the iTunes pre-order, Pavement Entertainment will launch a special Powerman 5000 New Wave Bundle.

Both iTunes and merch pre-orders start today, August 25, 2017.
Vocalist Spider One puts it best when he discusses the new single “Sid Vicious in a Dress”: “I suppose at its simplest it’s a twisted love song, but really it’s about loving what hurts you, what is bad for you. Staying when you should run. Over the years, Sid Vicious has become the poster child for chaos and self-destruction. I just took that and put it in the form of a beautiful girl. The title of the song kind of says it all.”
The track is one you’ll want to put on repeat, assuredly becoming an anthem for twisted love, mayhem, and rock and roll anarchy. It will leave everyone who hears it singing along to its unapologetic refrain, “You\’re a mess! Sid Vicious in a dress!” Keeping true to the very spirit of Sid himself, Powerman 5000 once again delivers an album on their own terms.
