WATCHTOWER was formed in Late 2012 by fate, when lead singer Nico Guijt left Dutch heavyweights HERDER in chase of greener pastures in Australia. He met with guitarist Robbie Ingram, bass player Ben Robertson and drummer Joel McGann and they set out on a mission to take their brand of crushing stoner metal to the masses and drink as much beer as they could in the process. WATCHTOWER have developed a fond local following and have had the pleasure of touring east coast Australia with their best mates Horsehunter. Sharing the stage with Conan (UK) and Windhand (USA) in late 2014, then signing with New York's Magnetic Eye Records in March 2015 to release their new EP Radiant Moon, to rave reviews world-wide.
