Power Trip vocalist Riley Gale has passed away. He was 34. The band confirmed the news through a press release late Tuesday evening. As of press time, no official cause of death has been revealed.

Dear Power Trip fans worldwide,

It is with the greatest of sadness we must announce that our lead singer and brother Riley Gale passed away last night.

Riley was a friend, a brother, a son. Riley was both a larger than life rock star and a humble and giving friend. He touched so many lives through his lyrics and through his huge heart. He treated everyone he met as a friend and he always took care of his friends. We will celebrate Riley’s life and never forget the great works of music, charity, and love that he left behind. You, the fans, meant so much to him, please know how special you are. If you have a memory of Riley please share it, no matter how small, as we remember him.

Please respect our wishes for privacy during this time. In lieu of flowers please send donations to Dallas Hope Charities, the link to donate directly is here: https://bit.ly/3jcyY5y

Signed,
– Riley’s Loving Family

P.S. Funeral and visitation arrangements are pending.


Next November, Power Trip were set to embark on their re-scheduled European tour with Lamb of God and Kreator.

Formed in Texas in 2008, Power Trip were one of heavy metal’s most promising young acts. In 2013, the band signed with Southern Lord Records and released their debut LP Manifest Decimation. Their sophomore effort – 2017’s Nightmare Logic – was met with much praise from fans and critics alike. Power Trip’s straight forward sonic assault made them poised for a lengthy, heavy career. At the time of Gale’s passing, the band were reportedly working on their third studio LP.
