The Power is a 4-piece eclectic rock band from the greater Philadelphia area. This Kickstarter campaign is an effort to finish and release their first full-length album, which is already five years in the making.

Drawing influence from progressive rock, punk, metal, jazz, and 1980's video game soundtracks, The Power (self-titled) is an album that takes you on a journey, changing genre at each turn while still remaining a cohesive unit.

To show that a single dollar doesn't go unnoticed, we're doing “a single for a single!” You'll get a free digital download of our opening track: “Shane Sings 5 Octaves to Save Mankind”. But don't be afraid to pledge more! We have tons of awesome rewards waiting for you backers. For example, to pay homage to our love of retro video games, we've made an 8-bit replica of our CD from start to finish. The two albums plus three bonus tracks brings our full music package to 27 SONGS! And the rewards get even better from there!
