South Gate / Bio

After forming in late 2003 South Gate went on to write a dozen or so songs and began to hit the scene. Playing local venues and traveling across MI and OH and as far as New York City, South Gate made their mark as one of the better live acts around opening for national acts such as Hatebreed, Anthrax, BLS, Wasp, Metal Church, Soil, Genitorturers and others. Song writing has always been key for the fellas, an example was "Let Go" recieving quite a bit of airplay on WRIF's "Midnight Metal" from 2004-2007. After a hiatus from 2007-2012 with the loss of original bassist Treadway, the band is back and some have said, better than ever, former manager Sticky decided to strap on the 4 string and get the ball rolling again. A different attitude and a new direction has South Gate writing some new material that will have a much more technical egde but still maintain the feel and groove that SG fans have come to love. With a few live shows under their belts with their new bass player in tow, SG will look to pick up the pace a bit in the coming months. We are laying down some new drum tracks as we speak with the hopes of putting out a true quality CD of some new material along with some old favorites for our fans. South Gates live show has changed a bit as we have incorporated some covers in the mix, Testament "Low", Lamb of God "Redneck" and a fan favorite, Slayer's "South of Heaven" just to name a few, the crowd really seems to get extra worked up when they hear one of their favorites played at a show. Thanks for checking us out, hope you enjoy the tunes and we hope to see you at a show in the future...\m/ \m/
