Local Edge Video: Meet Me At The Gates
Meet Me At The Gates are making a name for themselves in the underground metal scene by doing something a bit different than the rest of their peers. Instead of hailing from one scene in one small town, these dudes are from all over the place.
The reason they caught my attention is founder and lead guitar player Jason LeBouton caught me at Rock USA 2016 this past year in Oshkosh and mentioned that his band was about to drop some killer tunes and specifically, a professionally laid out video. The video is for the single, "Life In Two" and is from the forth-coming EP of the same name.
LeBouton describes the EP and the song:
"The song/video is the outline for the entire EP. The concept, feel, sound, everything. The idea behind it is that good and evil are always on your shoulders through everything you experience in your life, and how you perceive your situation depends on which side you let through. At the same time, the video, song, and EP is meant to show anyone and everyone going through a hard time that there’s always going to be times uncertainty and troubles in their lives, but no one is alone, and things will always get better so long as you take the initiative to persevere through the darkness and reach the light.
Here's the video for "Life In Two" by Meet Me At The Gates. The video is directed by Nick Frollo.
