Since making this post 2yrs ago Gates has signed to Pure Noise Records and re-released their 2nd EP “All You Have Left To Fear” through Pure Noise Records. It has been remastered with an additional song added to the EP called “Skyline” which you can listen/watch the video for (3rd video below). Scroll down to listen to the remastered EP.
The band is now gearing up for the release of their first full length album with 13 brand new songs. The album is called Bloom & Breathe. It will be released on October 21, 2014 through Pure Noise Records. They have released a music video for the song “Not My Blood” from the album. (check out the awesome video below.) You can pre-order the album that comes in many bundle options here. Or pre-order it on Itunes (The album cover artwork is very well done and nice!)
Check out a very good live studio session performance the band did for Audiotree live. (second video from the top)
Check out Gates website for more info about their upcoming 1st full length album Bloom & Breathe and those first 2 EPs.
I have been listening to this band Gates since last year when they first self-released their debut EP The Sun Will Rise and Lead Me Home. They are a very good band and have beautiful songs you can get lost in the music with. The music is calm and serine at times then goes into a burst of energy that compliment the calm parts before it. The guitars just sound so good! with them just having awesome riffs that go along with the melodic drums and come together in those burst of energy. If you like the bands Moving Mountains or Explosions In The Sky like I do you will definitely like Gates. If you haven’t heard of those bands either Google them and listen to them really go stuff as well!
Gates just self-released their new EP last week called You Are All You Have Left To Fear and it just shows they have gotten even better at their craft and song writing definitely check it out. They do it all DIY and have great art as the artwork and layouts of the eps.
@DavidMedina_ awesome dude, thanks so much! Kind words indeed—
