Formerly Bears & Bright Lights, the current incarnation of Gates came together when vocalist Kevin Dye and former Lydia guitarist Ethan Koozer joined the New Jersey-based band. “I hear our sound as five people with very different tastes and ideas creating music that equally represents each of our influences,” says Dye about Gates’ atmospheric sound. He says the band have plenty of plans to keep their momentum going this year, including an East Coast tour in March, playing Heart Fest in Ottawa in May, releasing You Are All You Have Left to Fear on vinyl this summer and writing a new full-length. --Cassie Whitt
