(hed) p.e. has their sights firmly set on the New World Order and they are using their brand of hardcore to bring it down.

While early (hed) p.e. albums found them mixed up in the rock n’ roll lifestyle, the group has been reborn to become the voice for a movement that empowers the youth and explores secret world history, and at the same time promotes unity and political activism. Always pushing the envelope, (hed) p.e.’s new album Evolution is built on heavy dark riffs and deep, solid grooves.

Formed 20 years ago in southern California, (hed) p.e. continues to defy genres and constantly redefine their music. Their latest album Evolution just released July 22, and has received rave reviews around the world. They will be making an appearance at Dirt Fest on August 9th in Birch Run, MI bringing their self-described G-Funk sound to the masses. Guitarist Jaxon Benge spoke on the phone recently to discuss the evolution of the band, the new direction of sound on the latest release and the upcoming Dirt Fest.
