Official press release:

This week the return of the annual day-long invasion of Los Angeles has been confirmed via the 2012 installment of the massive The Power Of The Riff Festival.

Continuing to bring you a tradition of heavy music from slow drones to aggressive crust ridden darkness, The Power Of The Riff will burn down LA on August 11th, marking the gathering's third annual installment.
