Poptone will perform the music from their three classic bands on tour in the U.S. this summer.

San Francisco's POW! (comprised of Byron Blum and Melissa Blue) have been garnering attention since their debut album 'Hi Tech Boom' (2014), a debut that received acclaim for it's relevant message on San Francisco's socio-economic climate. In 2015, the duo released 'Fight Fire' (Castle Face Records) in which the project took a turn, with Melissa switching to primarily playing synths. Over the last couple of years, they have relocated to Los Angeles where they focused primarily on writing and recording new material. Today, the full stream of their synth-candy rock record has premiered at IMPOSE, who say of the record, "The twelve track stunner boasts bursts of energy with its modern synth-rock flurry of sound. From high tempo party started “DNS” to “Cyberattack #3” – which sounds to have come from a blending of robot and human – through to the title track at the very end, this album is crazy unique, future-driven, and on point."
