Indie Rock quintet Gates have released the first track “Habit” off their upcoming sophomore release Parallel Lives (out June 3rd) via Pure Noise Records. You can check out the official music video for “Habit” below. This is what Gates’ Kevin Dye had to say about the album:
“I was working a job where I had to take the subway,” Dye says. “And I’d constantly see the same person on my morning commute sometimes, or I’d hear a passing conversation, only a sentence or two, and wonder what the rest of their story was. I’d walk past apartment complexes full of people, and know I’d never step foot in their homes or know what their lives were like.”
It’s that inspiration that birthed Parallel Lives, the indie rock quintet’s sophomore album out June 3 on Pure Noise Records. Co-produced by Dye and Mike Watts (The Dear Hunter, As Tall As Lions), the album features the band experimenting with different instruments as they reach new sounds.
“Trying to absorb and deal with how you can’t know everyone, and you won’t ever know how they affect your lives or how you’re affecting others with simple things you’re saying or doing. I tried to hone in on that and use these songs to get that point across.”
