The Bangtower project began in the late 2000’s as a progressive musical alliance featuring legendary bassist Percy Jones, who is best known for his work with Brand X, Los Angeles drumguru Walter Garces of The Electric Prunes, and Grammy winning musician, engineer and producer Neil Citron. Huge amounts of musical expertise and talent gathered there obviously.
Their maiden voyage Casting Shadow, produced by Neil Citron (who also engineered, mixed and mastered) and Jon Pomplin, was released by Declassified Records in 2010 and instantly became a success, even being named Editors Pick in Guitar Player Magazine. First single from The Road We Travel was The Bag Man,
Following the 2013 release of the single This is My Town and the completion of other new tracks for the upcoming sophomore release entitled With N With Out, the project went on hold for about a year while everyone attended to other obligations.

In addition to the original members, the Bangtower 2 project also features with Frankie Banali of Quite Riot, Rodger Carter of John 5, bassist Robbie Pag Pagliari of Ohm, musician/producer Jon Pomplin and Joan Fraley of the Rave.

From the beginning, the Bangtower project was designed to bring together musicians and friends from different genres, disciplines and physical locations, by using a combination of leading edge technology with project and traditional studio recording. The result from this expanded circle of talent from all over the country is another unique musical document of creative exploration. A fusion of multi-platinum record sellers, Grammy winners, session players, independent musicians and music students, all working together towards the goal of creating the most joyous and interesting music possible.
The songs have a unique personality that challenges and reflects each player’s extraordinary technique and style, pushing the edge of their musical comfort zone while remaining a true joy to play and listen to. Although every composition is an exceptional stand-alone masterpiece, each song remains an integral part of the overall context and feel of the album and the project.
