Bay Area Riff-Metal Outfit THE WATCHERS to Unleash Blistering "High and Alive" EP

Scorching quartet capture live set at the House of Rock for April release on Ripple Music

"Crunchy riffs, melodic vocals, and a stoner attitude, they come at you like a full-on Harley Davidson storming down the highway." — ECHOES AND DUST

On April 24, home of all things riff-heavy and rapid-fire rock Ripple Music will release the new live EP High and Alive from high-octane San Francisco American metal purveyors THE WATCHERS.  Following their 2018 album Black Abyss, the new EP delivers a searing performance recording of the band laying down their signature blend of stoner-doom with flourishes of thrash and riff-metal from across the spectrum of heaviness history.

Recorded live at the House of Rock in Santa Rosa last September, High and Alive captures The Watchers doing what they do best - burning down the stage with jaw-dropping musicianship and infectious heavy anthems.

Says singer Tim Narducci, "We’ve always wanted to record the band in a live setting. The energy and interpretation of the songs are a bit different every time we step on stage, and anything can happen.  High and Alive was an excellent evening of heavy and in the right setting. We were fortunate to have captured this particular performance.”

"A burly mix of classic doom a la The Obsessed with some melodic sludge in the vein of Corrosion of Conformity. It’s heavy stuff, but with massive hooks and soaring anthems." — TREBLE

"Well-versed in the enigmatic ways of heavy rock, packing an onslaught of massive riffs and twists that take the listener through a heady and heavy musical trip." — BLABBERMOUTH

Engineered by Evan Alexander and Harry Gale with mixing and mastering by Tim Narducci, High and Alive will be released on digital formats from Ripple Music on April 24th.
