GATES Stream New Album Parallel Lives,
Parallel Lives out June 3rd on Pure Noise Records
Gates are streaming their new album, Parallel Lives. The album will be out June 3rd via Pure Noise Records.
The album mirrors life’s series of altering paths: songs reference each other in lyrics and style, but sound wildly different from one moment to the next. Without Dye always playing guitar, songs like the ethereal “Empty Canvas” and the Patty-Griffin-inspired piano song “Fade” are the epitome of Gates’ blend of core lyrical songwriting and atmospheric heaviness. The songs were tirelessly revised: “Penny” began as a Pedro the Lion-esque ditty before becoming a faster, more upbeat number, and the beginning of “Habit” changed entirely.
“I’ve never felt so much joy and satisfaction as when the five of us came together for this.”
They will also be going on a Summer Tour with Thrice and La Dispute in the USA.
