Recently reunited tech-metal heroes WATCHTOWER have just announced that they’ve parted ways with vocalist Alan Tecchio.
Guitarist Ron Jarzombek explains, “Well, this isn’t something we’ve wanted to do but taking everything into consideration it’s a step we had to take: We have decided to part ways with Alan Tecchio and look for a new vocalist. We know this announcement may come as a shock to many who’ve heard our new song, ‘The Size of Matter’, and saw us live with Alan in Germany last month. Alan did a great job on ‘Matter’ and we had a blast getting back together on stage so this isn’t about the usual musical or personal differences. We want to wish Alan good luck in his future endeavors, including his upcoming Bang Your Head!!! show with Hades.”
“We are under no illusion that finding that voice for Watchtower will be an easy task, especially if our last singer search back in the early 90’s is anything to go by. But, we are hopeful that with the help of the internet we’ll be able to cast a wider net and find that needle in a haystack this time. We are looking for someone who has a grasp of the mechanics of music, i.e. an understanding of time signature changes, a good sense of timing, can write melodies, and is willing to go a little nuts with us on stage. We’d prefer someone in Texas, though we understand the geography may require flexibility to get the right person. If you sound like a cross between Devin Townsend, Geddy Lee, Myles Kennedy, and Russell Allen, and have the crazy stage personality of a Mike Patton — we want to hear from you! If you ARE Devin, Geddy, Myles or Russ — we want to hear from you too
Please send samples of your work (links are preferred) and a brief outline of your musical background and experience to watchtowerTX@gmail.com. If we hear something that might be a good fit, we will get in touch with you and take things from there.”
