Ron Jarzombek: Prosthetic Records set to release Watchtower's recent digital-only tracks on LP and CD

PROSTHETIC RECORDS will be releasing legendary progressive metallers WATCHTOWER’s recent digital-only tracks on LP and CD. The four tracks will be combined with one brand new song, creating the EP “Concepts of Math: Book One” and will be released on limited edition vinyl and digipack CD later this year.

Guitarist Ron Jarzombek further remarked on the partnership:
“I’m psyched to be on the same label as my old friend Marty Friedman! Prosthetic has also been home to great bands like Gojira, Animals As Leaders, All That Remains, as well as my fellow Texans, Scale the Summit. It’s nice to know we are in good company on this label. The music we’ll release later this year picks up right where we left off with ‘Control And Resistance’.”
WATCHTOWER was formed in 1982 in Austin, TX and has been hailed as the first jazz inspired progressive metal band. They have released two full length albums to date: “Energetic Disassembly” in 1985 and 1989’s “Control and Resistance”, which is often hailed as the benchmark for progressive metal and has influenced a countless number of heavy, technical bands. “Control and Resistance” was inducted into Decibel Magazine’s Hall of Fame in 2010.
