The City Gates / Bio

The City Gates is a Montreal indie rock band. Their musical influences combine also now and then elements of liveliness, ambient sound, shoegazing, post-rock and folk-music. In a word, a mix of what Montreal’s independent music industry actually offers.

After independently releasing two EP (five-tracks), the band has just finished recording their first complete 10 track album named Collapse. As the band was looking for more character and vitality on this album, The City Gates were given the opportunity to record at Studios Piccolo, with the support of great producer Gautier Marinof whose work has involved The Stills, Sam Roberts Band, François Lafontaine (Karkwa) and Simple Plan.
