Save The Clock Tower

Tasmania’s upcoming post-hardcore quartet, Save The Clock Tower, are set to finally release their debut album after four years of touring, two EP’s (2011’s ‘Letters’ and ‘The Human Condition’ in 2012), and getting themselves out there in the live scene. Following supports on a number of occasions with the likes of well-known Australian acts, Parkway Drive, The Amity Affliction, and Dream On Dreamer, Save The Clock Tower went on to co-headline a tour with Alesana last year, and even had an appearance at the critically acclaimed Breath of Life Festival charity event.

…one of these gems is Launceston based 4 piece post-hardcore band SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER. Having officially formed in 2010 they took their small island home by storm in an instant unleashing their own brand of calculated mayhem on the music starved public.

Over the next few years SAVE THE CLOCK TOWER re-built the foundation of their core with a mission to be uncompromising yet expressive and by gathering their influences from across punk, hardcore, metalcore and rock genres and developing their own sound constructed on pure emotion and hunger. They worked tirelessly to improve themselves as artists and develop a more distinguished, professional sound and adopted a real sense of depth with their lyrics.

The now proclaimed leading heavy rock act from Tasmania consist of Joel Hallam on guitar, Luke Vaessen on vocals, Owen Broad on drums, and Alex McNulty on bass and their rapid rise on the scene has led them to be now proudly endorsed by Ibanez Guitars, Truth Custom Drums, Mistake Clothing, Anchors Aweigh Apparel and led to a deal with US label Bullet Tooth and locally via Faction / Sony!

Having just wrapped a successful Australian tour with French luminaries Betraying the Martyrs only recently, Save The Clock Tower had barely had a moment to catch their breath in the midst of it, and now they’re further set to release their debut full-length album, ‘Wasteland’, on July 4th 2014 via Bullet Tooth.

Their debut single, “These Diseases”, is set to hit the radio this week. And look out for the full album being sent via Haulix.

You can currently pre-order ‘Wasteland’ here (either on its own or in one of three bundle packs), and to keep up with all things Save The Clock Tower via their Facebook, head on over to this link.
