Stream the pummeling new track "Resurrected" as the band prepares to head out on the Slaughter The Martøur Nørth America 2024 run supporting Machine Head.

Louisville metallic hardcore prospects Gates to Hell have announced their signing to Nuclear Blast Records. Having earned a reputation for a relentless work ethic and an aggressive meld of hardcore ethos and death metal heft, the band has unveiled the first phase of what promises to be a productive 2024. 

Set to begin next week, Gates to Hell will embark on the Slaughter The Martøur Nørth America 2024 supporting Machine Head, Fear Factory and the skyrocketing Orbit Culture. Along with the label signing and the anticipation of the tour, the band has unveiled their first effort on Nuclear Blast with the arrival of the single, "Resurrected". 

 “Our new track ‘Resurrected’ just dropped through Nuclear Blast" explained Gates to Hell guitarist Seth Lewis. "It’s my favorite Gates to Hell song released to date. After touring and practicing as much as we have the last couple of years, we’ve all really meshed together so much better as musicians. Trying to stick to our roots of the death metal/hardcore sound our music has always had, but being more collaborative and creative with some elements.” 

As for the future of the band, Lewis framed the significance of signing with Nuclear Blast Records. “I was a kid who loved metal from a very young age and I was constantly buying CDs of my favorite bands. Over time, I saw how many of those bands' CDs had the Nuclear Blast logo on the back. It’s a very unreal feeling to be working with them now with Gates to Hell. Very excited for what the future holds.”

Label manager and Nuclear Blast A&R Tommy Jones spoke about first experiencing the band last year and instantly recognizing the band's potential. "After a tip-off from my buddy Scott Lee, I first entered the Gates to Hell at the Milwaukee Metal Fest on May 28th, 2023. Straight from the rip seeing the band live, I was way into their style of Brutal Death Metal laced with hardcore energy. I could envision them being part of the new breed at Nuclear Blast. Fast forward after some hang sessions on the Jersey shore, and up at the New England Metal Fest, we officially sealed the deal in October on Friday the 13th. Fitting AF! I am stoked 'as hell' to welcome the Gates to the worldwide Nuclear Blast family! Let’s gooo!!”
