Published Nov 27, 2013Toronto experimental drone/metal outfit Gates have been shy of the spotlight since their 2010 debut LP, Moths Have Eaten at the Core, but the band have been quietly honing their feedback-heavy brand of noise, leading up to the release of their latest album, The Prevailing Wind, in April of this year.
We caught up with Gates during a performance last August at Toronto's Comfort Zone, where we sat down with the band's Bryan W. Bray. He enlightened us on the origin of the band, what they sound like and comparisons to Bray's other project, psychedelic outfit Gardenia.
