Towers is a pretty sick hardcore band from Philly who are tossing out some interesting chaotic heavy hardcore jams. I unfortunately missed their set this past summer, but everyone was raving about it and I felt dumb for missing it. Though in my defense they did only play for 15 minutes. Considering their songs generally just crest the 1 minute mark this is no surprise. Massive, jilting riffs tossed around like razor blades collide with cinder blocks of bass crunch. Anguished screams dual with rambunctiously pounding drums. People get hurt. For a band to squelch this much feeling out of a minute is an impressive feat.
Craig, the bassist / vocals for Towers posted a link to their site where you can listen to much of what the band has released thus far. Last year they released a self titled LP that came out in a variety of formats and a slew of labels. Very sick record, and if you grab the LP version its in all its screenprinted glory. Next on their list, slated for an early 2009 release is their newest LP, Full Circle, also released on a slew of labels.
If you live in the US check the Towers myspace page for shows that may be happening at this very moment (one with the Black Kites in Philly on the 30th). If you dont live in the US than I am sure they will be eventually making it out your way soon, so keep your eyes peeled. Craig also plays with Peter from Algernon Cadwallder in Peter & Craig. If Algernon makes you happy, Towers is sure to ruin your life.
Check it on the dubs. I made it easy for you. I put all the available files in a zip.
