New Brunswick, NJ

While many of their contemporaries rely upon the blinding but short lived fire of passing fads and gimmicks, the five piece New Brunswick, New Jersey based band Gates have instead leaned upon an honest, patient resolve. Much like the revered artists they’re so often compared to (Explosions in the Sky, Minus the Bear, Mineral, Jimmy Eat World), the passion of their work burns not with a flicker of passing flame but rather with the slow, deep heat of embers. Gateshas self-recorded and released two EP’s since 2011 and are currently in the studio tracking their first full-length with producer/engineer Mike Watts (Vudu Studios).
