GATES The Sun Will Rise and Lead Me Home E.P. FREE DOWNLOAD.
Gates. Scenes from the making of their excellent debut EP
If hearing names like Elliott, Minus the Bear, Penfold, Jimmy Eat World, and Explosions in the Sky is enough to induce a little bit of movement in your britches, be sure not to sleep on this new New Brunswick NJ quintet… GATES. Today Gates dropped their debut E.P. for purchase and/or FREE download. For all the bands trying to con you into downloading a record this week, this is one you’ll actually WANT to hear. With definitive nods with some of the aforementioned greats, Gates new self recorded / self produced debut recalls the spirit of a former brighter spot in independent music… all the way down to the limited and completely hand screen printed Discs and Jackets. The Sun Will Rise and Lead me Home is a gorgeous display of bright, artfully crafted songs big enough to fill the former shoes of New Brunswick’s long legacy of incredible musicians on the come up, and the sun on the face of the punk community. We can’t wait… and either can you. This is a MUST listen.
