SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER
Get Save The Clock Tower's new album The Familiar // The Decay here.
Save The Clock Tower are a 5 piece Alternative Metal/Rock band from Launceston, Tasmania, Australia. Their second album The Familiar//The Decay debuted at #2 on the Australian iTunes Metal chart earlier this year and after completing a successful national tour, it's safe to say these Tassie boys are back stronger than ever.
After officially playing together in 2010, the band quickly took the small island of Tasmania by storm and are now heralded as one of Tasmania’s leading heavy rock acts. Save The Clock Tower is Luke Vaessen on vocals, Joel Hallam on guitar, Owen Broad on drums, Billy Bennett on guitar and Ryan Barker on bass.
Easily now one of Australia’s leading heavy acts, Save The Clock Tower spent the most part of 2015 finalising their second album The Familiar//The Decay, which spent its entire release week sitting at #1 on the Australian iTunes metal charts. The band have developed a refined and professional sound and stage show that has impressed fans and critics from Australia through to America and beyond.
With the integration of theatricality and heavy rock, Save The Clock Tower have taken their live show to an impressive new level, solidifying their place in the Australian touring circuit as a must-see experience. Their impressive touring and support history includes Parkway Drive, The Amity Affliction, Dream On Dreamer, Alesana, Betraying The Martyrs, Bleeding Through, Protest The Hero, Make Them Suffer, three highly successful headline tours and appearing at Breath Of Life Festival three years running.
Signing to Bullet Tooth Records out of the U.S in 2013, Save The Clock Tower have been working closely with label manager Josh Grabelle who has had the likes of Memphis May Fire, Bullet For My Valentine and First Blood on his impressive roster. The band also signed to Sydney-based management company ArowAgency early this year.
Drawing on influence from Punk, Hardcore, Metalcore and Rock genres, the band have laid the foundations of their sound with integrity, sincerity and a true love of heavy music.
Save The Clock Tower are proudly endorsed by Ibanez, ESP, Truth Custom Drums, Ernie Ball Strings and Line 6.
"A great feature of this band is that, in amongst the sheer aggression of their delivery, they hit the sweet vocal harmonies like a dream, and this makes their music shine like a beacon in the night. The overall effect of Save The Clock Tower is that of a titanic wall of sound, with very welcome touches of melody, and they never utilise predictable rhythmic devices, which keeps things interesting at all times. Save The Clock Tower are awesome and their ballistic closer leaves the crowd stunned."
