Gates are excited to premiere the first track "Habit" off their forthcoming album “Parallel Lives” out June 3rd on Pure Noise Records. The band will tour with La Dispute and Thrice this summer, tickets can be purchased here. The physical pre-order is now available through Pure Noise Records here, and digitally through iTunes here.
Living in New York City, Gates' Kevin Dye began to look at the world differently.
"I was working a job where I had to take the subway," Dye says. "And I'd constantly see the same person on my morning commute sometimes, or I'd hear a passing conversation, only a sentence or two, and wonder what the rest of their story was. I’d walk past apartment complexes full of people, and know I’d never step foot in their homes or know what their lives were like."
It's that inspiration that birthed “Parallel Lives”, the indie rock quintet's sophomore album out June 3 on Pure Noise Records. Co-produced by Dye and Mike Watts (The Dear Hunter, As Tall As Lions), the album features the band experimenting with different instruments as they reach new sounds.
