Official press release:

South Coast alt-rock newcomers Towers are pleased to announce details of their debut EP. Slated for release on 30th September, the self-titled 3-tracker’s artwork simply features an image of their beloved Bournemouth beach. Additionally, the quartet have unveiled a stream of their debut single “Titan” below, with vocalist/guitarist Mark saying:

‘Titan’ is all about writing again after a year out of being in a band: The feeling you get when it starts to grow into an actual song and my view on what music means to me in general. Finding something that you’re passionate about keeps you mentally focused and happy.”

The entire project of Towers is something which Mark openly reveals is rooted in his mental well-being:

“I went through a tough time last year with personal and mental issues. Music was the only thing that kept me going through it. I started writing these songs during that time, and once I recorded them I had made a lot of progress with myself. It was basically therapy for me!”

In fact, all of Towers’ members, who comprise guitarist Dan, bassist Matt and drummer Jamie, share this motivation, as Mark explains:

“We do it for the love for music, we love playing music, writing music, and we are all best friends. That’s really it! It’s that simple. If we don’t write music we go crazy. Trust me.”

Seeing them head west, the self-titled EP was recorded with Jonny Renshaw at Bandit Studios (Devil Sold His Soul, Blood Youth). Mark recalls:

“We wanted a massive sound, and we knew that he would take what we had and bring it up to a level that we wanted. It was the most relaxed recording process we have ever had. Jonny is so passionate about music and we worked really well with him.”

Big the tracks certainly are: anthemic, brimming with emotion, infectious harmonies and an overriding sense of positivity. Easily drawing comparisons to the likes of Deaf Havana, 30 Seconds To Mars and Biffy Clyro, the band cite influences ranging from Jimmy Eat World to Sigur Ros. Mark concludes:

“We try to write simple, catchy rock songs that sound massive. To have 3 best friends in a band is something really special. We have all been in different bands, and bands together for over a decade. But this EP feels like we have something special.”

Pre-orders are available now on iTunes.
