Pricewar Music Presents
Gatherer are refreshingly different. They are a layered and intricate beast - a band who have had successes in two countries, self-produced and self-determined, they are poised in a moment to pounce and capture progressive and open minds and ears.
They will hit Adelaide for one night on August 29th alongside Adelaide favourites Colibrium, Favour the Brave and Submerge at Enigma Bar. A night of rock and roll debauchery.
Simultaneously heavy and dark, but easy to adore and get hooked on, they produce the music they love in the way they love it - which in turn makes it easy to become addicted to. With the creation of this, their sophmore full-length - they have been slowly and subtly bending the rules. QUEEN to QUEENS OF THE STONE AGE, THESE ARMS ARE SNAKES to GRIZZLY BEAR - they have been tapping into these musical forces in order to tug on people's heartstrings.
'Killer' is the first cut and single from their album 'Heavy Hail' - a full-length album for release on Friday August 7 through MGM Distribution. An album release tour through August to be announced will follow.
The album is full of light-and-shade, heavy moments, groove-laden riffs, pop-hooks draped over complex musicality and most importantly, packed with 'hell yeah' moments. Stitching up the seams, the band combining pop ingenuity with the philosophy & experience of yester-year's heavy high tone idols. It was produced by the band's Samuel K Sproull in between sessions at Tom Larkin's Studios in the City.
Their previous works have not gone unnoticed - from the first strike in previous album Sensational Creations, it's clear that Melbourne's GATHERER have sabotaged and intrinsically changed the rock n roll framework from the inside. Hailing from Wellington, NZ, the boys put their lives in a shipping container and have been calling Melbourne home for 7 years.
Gatherer Vocalist, Samuel beams with pride about the album. "I can't believe it's done. We have worked endlessly on this record and now it's here - it's been an amazing journey and now we can't wait to put in in people's ears."
With blistering determination, GATHERER have seized the energy from this geological upheaval and landed supports for an array of like minded local and international artists ...AND YOU WILL KNOW US BY THE TRAIL OF DEAD, LA DISPUTE and THE GETAWAY PLAN.
