Austin was probably my favorite show of tour. I’m glad someone was there to snap of a few photos of it!

Over the weekend we filmed a music video for a new song in an abandoned church in Gary, Indiana with the extremely talented and passionate group of people at Audiotree. We’re very excited to share this video with everyone.

I think I am more excited about this video than anything else at the moment. We arrived in Gary, Indiana before 5pm and left shortly after 6:30am the following morning. I wasn’t expecting it to be nearly as exhausting as it turned out to be. There’s no explaining the feeling of accomplishment I had as soon as the video wrapped up. So excited to see the end result. The crew at Audiotree are hands down some of the nicest, most talented and professional people around. Beyond lucky to have had this opportunity to work with them.

On a normal day I typically get up an hour or so before everyone else. It’s in these minutes spent alone, sitting in Studio A, where I really think about where I’m at and what we are doing. And I know I’ll never be able to get these feelings anywhere else.

Thank you, Rupert Neve, for what you have given to this record.

tracking guitars

Four songs down, plenty more to go. Tracking with Mike Watts has been an incredible experience. I never want this to end.

Ever.

We’re very excited to be doing out very first full US tour this spring with Frameworks and Tiny Moving Parts. More info at gatesnj.com/dates.

Gates is heading out on our first national tour in a few weeks. It’s been over four years since I’ve embarked on a full US and I don’t think it’s possible to feel any better about it. 2014 is shaping up to be a everything I wanted and more. Let’s go!

I got to share Nine Inch Nails “The Fragile”, one of my favorite albums ever, with two of my best friends tonight. Stoked on that.

There are very, very few records that I’ve held onto for as long as this one. And even fewer that have influenced me as The Fragile has. I remember how excited my brother and I were on it’s release day in 1999. And my father renting a van for all of our friends to drive an hour on a school night to see The Fragility tour in Omaha, NE.
