Heavens Gate Gospel Revival was formed in the cold dark days of October 2012 with the country reeling from rescession,
in a state (Kentucky) whos live music scene had been faultering for a while. Determined to have a good time and write
memorable music the Bassist James Shane and Guitarist Erik Howell, enlisted the help of fellow guitarist and songwriter
Chris Leone to form the core that would soon be Heavens Gate. After auditioning various drummers the band finally decided
on the skin thwomping talents of one Michael Kidd whose passionate and energy filled rythms moved the band in a way that
could only be described as heavenly. As these four pushed foreward they were met with further complications when the issue
of a front man continued to plague them. After again auditioning various candidates the band decided to move on as a four
piece and thus the recording process started.
The members of the band have combined experience of over 50+ years in music.
Guitarist/Vocalist - Chris Leone
Bassist - James Shane
Drummer - Micahel Kidd
Guitarist - Erik Howell
With the line up now solidified, and songs being written at a lightning pace the fearsom foursome started forging what is
quickly becomeing some of the most memorable hooks, melodies, and lyrics, ever heard in or around the Louisville, Frankfort,
or Lexington, Ky scenes. Led by the searing vocal melodies, insane guitar riffs, buller riddled solos, thick low end of the
bass, and the energetic almost heart stopping drumming, this band began to form a niche all thier own and find other bands
with which to share the stage and help them preach as they call it the "gospel"...
