Neil Citron: Brand X's Percy Jones back with "Bang Tower"!

BangTower "Casting Shadows" NOW AVAILABLE
One of the most highly anticipated CD releases of 2010 is finally "seeing the light", much to the elation of the music press and fans across the globe. BangTower is a progressive musical alliance featuring legendary bassist Percy Jones, who is best known for his work with Brand X, a band that also featured Genesis legend Phil Collins. Along with Jones, the power-prog trio also includes Grammy winning guitarist/engineer/producer Neil Citron. Walter Garces, who also performs with '60s psychedelic marvels The Electric Prunes, rounds off the trio with his skillful drumming. Work on their maiden voyage "Casting Shadows", produced by Neil Citron (who also engineered, mixed and mastered) and Jon Pomplin (Declassified Records), was recently completed and the album is now available from the label and CD-Baby. Digital download versions now available on Apple iTunes and soon to other major Digital distributors.

BangTower features legendary bassist Percy Jones, Grammy winning guitarist/engineer/producer Neil Citron and LA "Drum Guru" Walter Garces. Their debut release "Casting Shadows" produced by Jon Pomplin (Declassified Records), and Neil Citron (who also engineered, mixed and mastered), was released by Declassified Records on September 28, 2010. With Percy's unmistakable bass sound percolating next to Walter's harmonic cannons and implements of percussive wonder, an edgy yet incredibly dreamy, otherworldly texture becomes prominent throughout the mix. Neil's unique guitar work takes full advantage of this partnership by blending gorgeous chordal interludes, amazing melodic passages interlaced with scathingly insane soloing. The key element in this "trio of legends " music can be best described with one word; rapport. Though Jones, Garces and Citron are all virtuosos in their own right, it's quite evident that they are enthusiastically enjoying the crafting of this music whether together in a top studio like Entourage in Los Angeles, or remotely via their own studios across the US, it promises to be a most auspicious first-outing for a band simply known as... "BangTower."
