Gatekeeper Announce Debut LP
Published Apr 05, 2012Following a few bite-sized EPs, horror-soundtrack-loving New York duo Gatekeeper will deliver their first full-length effort Exo this summer.
The record, which arrives July 17 courtesy of Hippos in Tanks, contains 12 new tracks described in a press release as "a gapless playback rush of digitally enhanced stimulation." The record supposedly touts sinister synth stylings, angelic choir vocals and an affinity for "IDM, acid and big-beat-inspired techno rhythms."
The LP will apparently also be accompanied by a "first-person gaming environment... in which one explores various worlds inspired by tracks on the album." It's a little unclear at this point just what to expect from the game, but maybe it will take on a similar vibe to that of Gatekeeper's early '90s-CGI-styled motorcycle fetish clip for "Chains," off their 2010 EP Giza. The video was included on a VHS cassette that came with the record.
