As of today, gates is hitting the road to tour. Click HERE for their tour dates.
So in anticipation of gates show at Galaxy CD’s, we decided to check these guys out before hand and see what they had to offer. Needless to say…we were pleasantly surprised.
gates recently put out their album The Sun Will Rise And Lead Me Home earlier this year. The album is heavily post-rock sounding and even has hints of Explosions In The Sky, but manages to have flowing lyrics tied to it. Being able to pull that off was a big surprise for us, and had us hooked immediately.
Every song on this album is worth listening to. If you skip through a song, you are only robbing yourself. There might only be six tracks on this album, but they are six very strong tracks that have a lot of substance to them. I would have to say though, that the best song on The Sun Will Rise And Lead Me Home is In The Morning. That particular song alone has been on repeat for the past hour…hour and a half? Ok, I admit…I can’t get enough of it. The guitars on that particular song is so damn catchy and the building up to the end only to leave you hanging is simply masterful.
