THE GATHERING – Home
TE065 | April 18th (USA/Canada)

01. Shortest Day
02. In Between
03. Alone
04. Waking Hour
05. Fatigue
06. A Noise Severe
07. Forgotten
08. Solace
09. Your Troubles Are Over
10. Box
11. The Quiet One
12. Home
13. Forgotten Reprise

Ever since their inception 15 years ago THE GATHERING have continued to evolve, never settling on one set style and rarely ever duplicating themselves. They have embraced change along the way and used it as a tool to feed their ongoing creative process.

Like their previous groundbreaking releases — their classic "Mandylion" (1995), the electronic dabblings of "How to Measure a Planet?" (1998) or the trip-hop/atmospheric warmth of "Souvenirs" (2003) — their latest album "Home" finds the band heading back to a bit more of rock vibe, yet still maintaining the delicate nuances and passages that fans worldwide have grown to love.

But the momentum here is not entirely based on emotional highs, as the band still manages to capture the dark spirit that most human beings have had to deal with from time to time. Variation has always been the key, case in point the diverse offering of such numbers as "In Between", "Shortest Day", "A Noise Severe" and the powerfully moving title track.

THE GATHERING will make their debut at this year's South By Southwest Music Festival in Austin, Texas on March 16, 2006 at Lava Lounge. Also participating are fellow lablemates GREEN CARNATION, UNEXPECT and GIANT SQUID. The band will also venture out for a small U.S. tour as part of their Homelands world tour to promote their upcoming album.

All dates with GIANT SQUID and UNEXPECT except where noted:

Mar. 16 - The Lava Lounge - Austin, TX (SXSW / THE END RECORDS Showcase)
Mar. 17 - The Masquerade - Atlanta, GA
Mar. 19 - Jaxx - Springfield, VA
Mar. 20 - The Middle East - Boston, MA
Mar. 21 - The Knitting Factory - New York, NY
Mar. 23 - The Big Bop - Toronto, Ontario, Canada
Mar. 24 - Foufounes Electriques - Montreal, Quebec, Canada

Thanks, avestin. Looking forward to it. One of my favourite bands- I just love the way they have never done anything twice.

Sounds nice! The song is a little bit commercial though. I don't mind at all, it's important that a band tries to be attractive. I'm really looking forward to hearing the full album. And I will definitely be seeing the Gathering on their tour this spring.
