Anonymous said: What guitars do you all use?

Kevin plays a Gibson les paul double cutaway with Seymour Duncan stacked P90 pickups.

Dan plays a custom Warmoth telecaster deluxe with a Fender strat neck. It has a humbucker at the neck and a single-coil bridge pickup.

Ethan plays 2 Fender telecasters. One is a ‘69 thinline, the other is a ‘72 telecaster deluxe. They both have a single American Fender wide range humbucker in the neck position. All tone knobs and selectors have been removed and each guitar has a single volume knob.

Mike plays a Gibson grabber

Anonymous said: Do you guys use any like alternate tunings, or are all your songs in standard tuning?

We use a variety of guitar tunings, ranging from drop C# to FACGCE to DADGAD, and sometimes even standard EADGBE. We even play some songs where everyone is using a different tuning than each other. fun stuff!

We’ve been extremely lucky and every band we’ve toured with have turned out to be the best and most talented people.  I’ve loved each and every tour we’ve gone on.  I seriously cannot pick just one!


This is going to be a banger!

Right after our record comes out, we’re gonna play a few shows in the northeast before venturing further (more on that when the time comes). This is our Boston date - August 29th at the Democracy Center in Harvard Square. Definitely don’t not go. Get it? Good.

Well of course we’d consider playing in Australia, that would be incredible!  It’s not easy to come up with the means to play out of the country, but hopefully we’ll have the opportunity to do so in the future as I know we’d all be ecstatic to do so.


sumarheima said: Hi guys! Great stuff you have here, found you a few years ago through Greg Dunn's portfolio and been keeping a routine check on you ever since, also have both your cd's in my humble collection. Sorry if this question has been answered before but I couldn't locate it anywhere for now, but - when will you guys release the full length? Thanks and keep up the amazing work! Ahti

Hey Ahti!

So cool to hear you found us through Greg!  Thanks for purchasing those CDs, that’s awesome.  The question has not been answered yet so fear not: we will be announcing a release date very soon.  If you want to keep up to date with all things Gates I suggest signing up for the Mailing List here:

http://gatesnj.us6.list-manage.com/subscribe?u=ead10aa19512923fcbefa2693&id=f5e397dfd8

We’ll be emailing about upcoming tours and album releases so the message doesn’t get filtered out by Facebook or lost in a sea of tweets.

Thanks for your interest and new music is coming soon, I promise!


openheartaesthetic said: Hey guys. Really excited about the new LP. Will you be making any announcements about it soon?

Hey, so glad you’re excited for it!  We are too.  Announcements will come very soon…we’re still working on all of the cool things we’re hoping to roll out with this record!  Stay tuned!
