The Plague – New Single & Video

Screen Shot 2020-10-14 at 3.59.29 PM

The Colleen Power Band is back with a brand new single and video that’s perfectly fitting for the pandemic times. The Plague is the band’s first release since last October’s Busy Highway, and — despite the timely title and lyrics — was actually written in 2014.

“The band figured we’d put the song out there now — in advance of the entire album being ready for release — because COVID-19 may be over by then, and nobody will want to hear a song called The Plague,” says Colleen Power.

She adds the song’s bed tracks were recorded in October, 2019, and the track was completed last month. The band decided to release the song two weeks before Hallowe’en for obvious reasons.

Says Power, “It seems these days, you can either laugh or cry, and we choose to have fun with it.”

Power, the band’s lead singer, also directed, edited, and shot the video in recent months with help from her two daughters, and features band members Ed Sutherby, Jason Whelan, and Aneirin Thomas, as well as Chuck Herriot of the St. John’s Actor’s Studio.
