The now rather established band The Watchers are continuing to ride the wave generated by their recent Ripple Music EP debut, ‘Sabbath Highway‘. The band – vocalist Tim Narducci (ex-Systematic / Spiralarms), his Spiralarms’ band mate Chris ‘Cornbread’ Lombardo on bass, drummer Carter Kennedy (Orchid), and Jeremy Epp on guitar (Blackgates / The Venting Machine), have shared some news.
First, the guys have issued their Official Video for the track “Just A Needle” from the EP, and it is an all-around amazing offering indeed. Not only is the song a kick-ass track to begin with, but the accompanying visual elements of the video are the perfect enhancements for its well-rounded presentation.
Second, The Watchers are revealing some upcoming touring plans, with one date being their inaugural appearance at this year’s Maryland Doom Fest. Being a regular attendee of the annual festival, I am absolutely beyond excited about seeing The Watchers there live this year. You can find all upcoming tour dates for the band below, if you cannot make the MDDF III appearance.
