Announcing the long awaited return of East Bay heavy hitters POWERHOUSE with their first new recording in nearly 20 years!


The band took a nearly 2 decade hiatus after the tragic loss of founding member, Ernie Cortez. But coming together in a new incarnation with longtime members Cris, Eddie, Walter, and Abe as well as the addition of graffiti legend and musician Casey Watson (Old Firm Casuals, Look Back and Laugh, Cro-Mags) on bass, this band is not resting on laurels or rehashing the old. In the true spirit of hardcore they are continuing to progress and reinvent. And they do not disappoint! 6 blistering new tracks of fast, loud no bullshit hardcore that is sure to have you moving!


Recorded at Soundwave studios, engineered by Michael Rosen and produced by Lars Frederiksen, these songs remind you what made hardcore great. Brotherhood, loss, family and standing your ground, this record shows what this music and this scene is really about. Songs written and performed by brothers who live it everyday. Powerhouse got your back! This record truly is Oakland Brand Hardcore in Your Face!
