Gatecreeper Announce February Livestream Concert

“It’s been over a year since our last show and we have been dying to play together again. Unfortunately, we aren’t able to play in a sweaty packed club, but we are working hard to make this livestream as close as possible to the real thing. We hope everybody will be circle pitting in their living room or headbanging on their couch along with us.”

Gatecreeper Sign With Nuclear Blast

Gatecreeper have signed a new deal with Nuclear Blast Records. This news comes after the band surprise released a new record titled “An Unexpected Reality” earlier this month.

The group commented:

“We are excited to start the next chapter of Gatecreeper with Nuclear Blast. We look forward to continuing the growth of our band with Monte Conner and the rest of the label.”

Nuclear Blast‘s Monte Conner added:

“I love Chase and Gatecreeper’s killer work ethic and their marriage of brutality with actual songs. I am so excited to hear what they come up with next but I KNOW it will be their ultimate album. I am honored they have chosen Nuclear Blast and me to be part of their continuing mission for world domination.”

Listen To New Gatecreeper Release “An Unexpected Reality”

Gatecreeper have released a new record titled “An Unexpected Reality.” As previously reported, the effort features seven short grind, punk and hardcore tracks, as well as one 11-minute death-doom song titled “Emptiness.”

Gatecreeper To Release “An Unexpected Reality” Tomorrow

Gatecreeper will be releasing a new record titled “An Unexpected Reality” tomorrow (January 13). The effort will feature seven short grind, punk and hardcore tracks, as well as one 11-minute death-doom song titled “Emptiness.”

“An Unexpected Reality” Track Listing:

01. “Starved”
02. “Sick Of Being Sober”
03. “Rusted Gold”
04. “Imposter Syndrome”
05. “Amputation”
06. “Depraved Not Deprived”
07. “Superspreader”
08. “Emptiness“

Vocalist Chase Mason commented:

“I think the social media environment has just fried our attention spans. Trying to hold someone’s attention for two or three months with a typical album roll-out doesn’t seem feasible with everything else currently going on in the world.”

“It’s meant to be listened to as a whole, so we didn’t wanna break it up or release a couple songs ahead of time as ‘singles’ or whatever. We also didn’t wanna treat it like it’s our next full-length. Because it’s not.”

“I’ve had the idea to do a record like this for a while. In 2020, we were supposed to be touring all year. Once everything got cancelled, we decided it was the perfect time to turn this idea into a reality.”

“This release was an opportunity to experiment and expand on different ideas within the Gatecreeper formula. It doesn’t necessarily signify a new direction for the band, but we’ll definitely have a couple new tools in our toolbox moving forward.”
