WATCHTOWER: 'The Size of Matter' Available On

"The Size of Matter", the first new offering from Austin, Texas technical metal godfathers WATCHTOWER since their seminal 1989 release "Control and Resistance", has been added to the download store and can be purchased at this location.

Engineered and mixed by Ron Jarzombek, with vocals mixed by Jon "Jonny Rod" Ciorciari and mastering done by Jacob Hansen (BLOTTED SCIENCE, VOLBEAT, DESTRUCTION), "The Size of Matter" features the "Control and Resistance" lineup consisting of Alan Tecchio (vocals), Ron Jarzombek (guitar), Doug Keyser (bass), and Rick Colaluca (drums).

"The Size of Matter", which is slated to appear on the band's forthcoming album "Mathematics", will be performed live for the first time when WATCHTOWER take the stage at the Keep It True festival in Lauda-Königshofen, Germany on April 23, the group's first European show since headlining the Headway festival in Holland in 2004.

"We actually had our first rehearsals in 20 years with Alan [Tecchio] over the weekend", revealed drummer Rick Colaluca. "Alan flew down from New Jersey so we could go over all the songs together rather than flying completely blind.

"We will have a full hour set at Keep It True and, yes, we are throwing in some wacky things that you'd expect from WATCHTOWER and baptize 'The Size of Matter'.

"It's been way too long since we had a new song to play.

"The online response to 'Matter' has been great so far so we're really looking forward to playing it live in front of a sold-out house."
