Gates is a band from New Jersey that is quickly gaining steam… having only released 2 EPs to date (one of which sold out in 2 minutes!!) and having just finished their first tour around the US!!
Comprised of members who are originally from such statesÂ as Michigan and Nebraska, Gates brings forth an instrumental intricacy, meshed with lead singer Kevin Dye’s vocals, that will dig deep. Instrumentally along the lines of post-rock, not to mention very vocally felt, Gates brings an atmosphere of introspective pondering, of insightfulÂ adventuring, and ultimately,Â anÂ atmosphere that is wholly from the heart.
I was lucky enough to catch these guys on tour while they were in Lincoln, NE +Â Portland, OR and I must admit, not only does their music exponentially impact live… these are some truly profound dudes. Not a single piece of the music they create is lacking in heartfelt honesty.
Available originally as a tour exclusive for their first ever full US tour… these are the last remaining copies!!
