Out of all the releases Death To False Hope Records has ever put out, Gates features the most laid back artwork. A grainy brown backdrop with hand drawn outlines of trees adore the front cover with the simple lettering of “gates” floating harmlessly overtop.
Somehow, all of that just makes sense when you sit down and listen to Gates. Slow, reserved and almost quiet – Gates are not your typical Death To False Hope band. This is soft, growing and controlled – better suited for a label like Deep Elm Records as it ebbs and flows with restrained emotion.
