Official press release:
Relapse Records is excited to announce the signing of Arizona’s death metal newcomers Gatecreeper. Formed in mid-2013 based on their mutual love for bands like Dismember, Entombed, Bolt Thrower and Obituary, Gatecreeper play monstrous, low-end, old-school death metal for a new generation.
The band recently completed their debut full-length entitled Sonoran Depravation, which will see its release via Relapse this fall. The album was recorded at Homewrecker Studios in Tucson, Arizona by Ryan Bram and mixed by Kurt Ballou at GodCity Studios.
Gatecreeper commented on the signing and their new album:
“We are very excited to be working with Relapse, a label that we have all been following for many years. It is a dream come true to release our first full-length on such a legendary and trustworthy label.”
