Backed by his band The Messengers, Powell, a highly acclaimed songwriter goes full-blown space truckin’ southern rock with hints of classic ‘60s psychedelic fuzz to create an album unlike anything on the planet. Check out the melodic stomp of “Time Flies,” the hard rock crowd pleaser “King Kong”, or the melodic lullaby of “Star.” The Overlords packaging includes a hand-drawn comic that tells the story of a band of rock gods lost in the future. Available August 7th on CD and vinyl, and brought to you by Cleopatra Records.
“The Overlords of the Cosmic Revelation is the greatest record ever recorded by anyone and of all time,” Powell enthuses. “It cures AIDS, cancer, gout, erectile dysfunction, and bad breath. If you buy enough copies of it, you will get into heaven no matter what you've done. If a cop pulls you over while you're listening to this music, they will have to legally let you go (no questions asked). The 1 millionth purchaser of Overlords will receive a personal check for a whole $5,000 from yours truly.” Offer not valid in all areas. See album for details. Talk to your doctor before listening to Overlords.
