On the Might of Princes - Documentary

On The Might Of Princes formed on Long Island, New York in 1997, emerging from an heterogenous but cooperative community of independent bands and labels. First releasing material on Rok Lok ('The Making of a Conversation') and Creep Records/Traffic Violation Records ('Where You Are and Where You Want to Be.')   They eventually signed to the legendary hardcore punk label, Revelation records and released what would be their third and final record, 'Sirens', in 2003.  After a follow-up tour of Europe, On The Might Of Princes disbanded in May 2004.

During the bands initial existence, they performed with a laundry list of successful bands such as Coheed and Cambria, Kill Your Idols, Indecision, Latterman, Taking Back Sunday to name a few. Many artists that grew up listening to the band went on to form bands like Bridge and Tunnel, Caspian, Incendiary, Iron Chic, Regulate, Slingshot Dakota, This is Hell and The Saddest Landscape to name a few. 

After a two-year split, they reunited in late 2006 to play three sold out shows in Long Island, Brooklyn and Connecticut. Soon afterward, expanded re-releases of their first two albums were released on Rok Lok Records. In August 2008, they temporarily reunited once again for a few more shows. In 2012, Revelation Records announced that the group would reunite yet again for the label's 25th anniversary festival at New York's iconic Irving Plaza, followed by two sold out nights at Brooklyn's premiere rock club, Saint Vitus Bar. A fourth reunion was planned for June 2013 to headline a music festival in Long Island, but was cancelled for undisclosed reasons. Soon after, the band formally declared that there would be no more shows or new material and they had officially broken up.

Jason Rosenthal passed away in Austin, Texas of a heart attack on August 12, 2013. He was 35.

Former drummer, Chris Enriquez is raising money to release a full-length documentary to tell the bands full story and history and of course to honor the legacy of his fallen bandmate, Jason Rosenthal. Video Editor, Mario Quintero (of the band Spotlights) will be handling the technical aspects of production while Chris will be handling all of the interviews from former band members and artists who were inspired by the band. This effort comes around the same time of the re-release of 'Where You Are and Where You Want To Be' on Dead Broke Rekerds on 4/10/20.

The goal is to raise the money needed to produce the film by 6/1/20 so that the film can be completed for a Fall 2020 release. No profits will be made, all funds will go towards production. The film will be premiered at a music venue initially, followed by a Q&A with the band and then available for free online streaming for all to enjoy. 

All the support you can provide that will make it possible to tell the the story  of On the Might of Princes will help cement their legacy.  RIP Jason Rosenthal (1978-2013)
