Power Trip / Riley Gale Dead at 34

Dallas Thrash Metal band Power Trip vocalist died on Monday, the band has confirmed in a statement.

The statement reads: “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.”

Riley Gale formed Power Trip when he was 22, while he was working in an office job and schooling at the University of North Texas in Denton.

Power Trip released their debut album ‘Manifest Decimation’ in 2013 and ‘Nightmare Logic’ in 2017.

A rarities compilation ‘Opening Fire: 2008-2014’ was released in 2018, with a live album out earlier this year.
