Finally, we can present these new dates set for August 2022. At the Gates will play the whole SOTS album from start to finish, and also a mix of other tracks from their 30+ year career.

We have been looking forward to return to the US for several years now, and with a great tour package together with Municipal Waste, Enforced & Thrown Into Exile, it is finally time. See you in the pit!”

Doing the show with the original promoter, Mass Concerts, and having Hatebreed on the bill, who were one of the 2000 tour breakout bands, is going to make for an amazing event.”

At The Gates Premiere “Cosmic Pessimism” Video

At The Gates have premiered a new video for their song “Cosmic Pessimism.” This track is from the band’s latest album “The Nightmare Of Being.”

Tomas Lindberg commented:

“‘Cosmic Pessimism’ is one of the central tracks of the new record. Not only drawing the title from the Eugene Thacker book of the same name, the lyrics actually are written by Eugene himself. This is something I am very proud of, the collaboration with one of the central figures when it comes to modern-day pessimism and the idea of how it correlates to cosmic horror. It is a suffocatingly strict and repetitive song, and it displays the mood of the lyrics brilliantly, in my opinion.

At The Gates have always been fans of anything eclectic and extreme, and we are finally at a moment in our career where we feel comfortable lifting in some of these, more avantgarde influences within the At The Gates trademark sound. Minimalistic neoclassical influences here clash with the Deutsche rock/’Kraut’ and no wave sounds that we love so much. The video is once again shot by Costin, our longtime collaborator, and, once again, he managed to add extra depth and texture to the music and lyrics.”

At The Gates Premiere “The Nightmare Of Being” Video

At The Gates have premiered a new video for the title track of their new album “The Nightmare Of Being.” That effort was officially released today (July 2).

Tomas Lindberg commented:

“One of the key tracks on the album, this one is really dark and haunting, with some classic old-school At The Gates harmonies thrown in.

I guess some of you have already read up on the concept of the album. This one is the introduction to said concept, introducing the main idea that mankind’s consciousness is the ghost of our nightmares, the plague that drives us to our own extinction.

I am really happy that Patric Ullaeus got the chance to, once again, interpret the dark themes of our music with his video. He really gave this a special feeling, which I think goes really well with the theme of the abyss of the human soul.

Today you can also, finally, listen to the whole album! Dive in! It is, as said before, the most rich, cinematic, textured, layered, progressive and dynamic album we have ever written. Thanks for listening!”
