Cult New Jersey Power Releases New Music Video "Hippie Speedball"
Featuring the powerhouse rhythm section from legendary space lords Monster Magnet, The Atomic Bitchwax plays balls-to-the-wall rock 'n' roll that smashes space rock and proto-metal into a towering celebration of the riff. The New Jersey power trio (aka TAB) released its critically-celebrated seventh full length LP, Force Field, last December via Tee Pee Records. Now, The Atomic Bitchwax announces a North American tour with The Sword. Set to launch on June 7 in Albuquerque, NM, the three week trek will run through June 29 in Hot Springs, AR. The just-announced live dates are as follows:

In additional news, The Atomic Bitchwax has released a new music video for the track "Hippie Speedball". The track is taken from the band's latest release, Force Field, and can be seen now at this location (via The Obelisk).
Since its formation in 1993, THE ATOMIC BITCHWAX has inspired hundreds of developing rock and metal bands, but no group of musicians has come close to matching TAB's unique style of fun, frenetic and formidable rock and roll. Featuring bassist/vocalist Chris Kosnik and drummer Bob Pantella (each also of MONSTER MAGNET) alongside shred-tastic gunslinger Finn Ryan, the band has perfected its unique style of hard rock that High Times appropriately tabbed, "thunder-boogie" and Noisey has hailed as "designed to be blasted out of a drop top Camaro".
