WE ARE WATCHERS
Watchers are a rock band consisting of Chris Brennan (Vocals, Guitar), Clint English (Lead Guitar), Benjamin Ezell (Drums) and Justin Martindale (Bass) from Lake Charles, LA.
Chris and Clint have been writing and recording music together since the summer of 2008. It was hard for them to actually get things going and off the ground, at first, being that it was just the two of them. Chris wrote lyrics, rhythm guitar, and some keys, while Clint wrote the lead guitar, drums and bass guitar. Throughout those years of constantly putting off music and picking it back up again, the duo finally decided to record their freshman album with producer, Chris Eric (The Woodlands/Houston, TX), in August of 2012. Watchers have entitled the record “Fighting Patience” as a literal interpretation of the time, patience and dedication it took to finally release this record after all they had been through. They have explored so many uneasy options to record and release this record, but the fact that they remained patient really has paid off. “Fighting Patience” is a full-length/full band record and is due out October 9, 2012.
As of August 2013, Watchers have included two new official members, and the full-band Watchers line-up now consists of Chris Brennan (Vocals, Guitar), Clint English (Lead Guitar), Benjamin Ezell (Drums) and Justin Martindale (Bass).

“Watchers: Part of a New Rock Era in the Making” - OneAvenue
“We think Watchers is INCREDIBLE. I listened to the entire Spotify playlist at least three times last night.” - Dayna Ghiraldi (Big Picture Media - President)
